Nifty soared 127 points on Wednesday to close at 8603, achieving the target mentioned above and vindicating our view.
8740, the top made in October 2016, is the next target to eye on the way up.

8460, the erstwhile resistance, would now act as immediate support, with the stop-loss of which trading longs should be held on to.
