OUTLOOK
Today morning, Nikkei is down nearly a percent and half on stronger Yen, other Asian markets are trading flat to modestly higher and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 20 points higher start for our market.
Readers would recall that ever since Nifty crossed 7980 hurdle, we had been working with major target of 8243, which is the 61.8% retracement level of the entire 9119-6826 fall.
The benchmark, on Friday, touched a high of 8262 before closing at 8221, achieving the target mentioned above and vindicating our view.
As we have been mentioning for past couple of days, a decisive crossover of 8243 is required for fresh upmove. 8336, the top made in October 2015, would be the immediate target in that case, followed by 8655, the top made in July 2015, which is also the 52-week high.
8130 continues to be immediate support on the hourly chart, which should serve as the stop loss for trading longs.

Fed Chair Yellen is schedule to speak before the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia today and markets would carefully listen to her speech for getting cues to next interest rate hike after Friday’s dismal jobs report.
