OUTLOOK
Today morning Asian markets are trading flat to modestly higher and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 30 points higher opening for our market.
Ever since Nifty broke immediate support of 8800 on Monday, we had been working with a downside target of about 8650 where 34-dma was placed. 34-DMA had since then moved up and was placed at 8670 yesterday. The benchmark touched a low of 8669 yesterday, achieving the downside target of 34-DMA and vindicating our view.
Traders would do well to book profit in short positions and wait for the breach of this important support before taking fresh shorts.
Immediate resistance on the hourly chart is placed around 8790 above which 8900, where the trendline adjoining recent tops is placed, would be the crucial hurdle to eye. A breach of 8900 would mark a breakout from a triangle formation and would project a big target of about 9400.

The Finance Ministry will release the Economic Survey today. The key figure to watch out would be the fiscal deficit target for FY16 and FY17. Currently markets are working with a target of 3.6% for FY16.
