OUTLOOK
Today morning, barring a modestly lower Hang Seng and a flattish Shanghai, other Asian markets are trading with modest gains and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 30 points lower opening for our market.
In yesterday’s report we had mentioned that the immediate support on the hourly chart is placed at 8290, a sustained trading below which would generate a sell on the hourly chart and would pave the way for the further correction and had therefore advised keeping a stop loss of 8290 in trading longs.
The benchmark broke 8290 support in the initial trade itself and as feared plunged all the way to 8111 before closing at 8127.
With yesterday’s fall, benchmark has also broken immediate previous bottom placed at 8147 which was also the 61.8% retracement level of the recent 7961-8446 upmove. This has opened up the possibility of the retest of the 7961 bottom. Before that a trendline adjoining bottoms made in October and December 2014 lands a support around 8050. Also, that is where the lower bad of bollinger on the daily chart is placed. This makes 8050-7960 a broad support zone.
On the way up 8300 is the immediate resistance on the hourly chart above which 8446, the top made yesterday would be the bigger hurdle to eye.

Traders are advised to book profit in short positions as 8050 support approaches. Fresh longs should wait for the crossover of 8300.
