OUTLOOK
Today morning, Asian markets are trading mixed with modest changes and SGX Nifty is suggesting a flattish start for our market.
Ever since Nifty broke the important 8300 support on the daily chart we had been working with the downside target of 8070, which is the 61.8% retracement level of the entire 7723-8627 upmove.
Nifty yesterday nosedived 152 points to settle at 8068, achieving the target mentioned above and vindicating our view.
The view however continues to be bearish and will remain so until we see a resumption of the higher-top higher-bottom formation on the daily chart. However, after falling nearly 6.5% in last nine sessions and achieving major downside target, a bounce back in Nifty cannot be ruled out.
8250 is now the immediate resistance on the hourly chart, at least a crossover of which is required to suggest that the bounce back has some steam. Until then, every pull back should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Next support would come around 7950, where a trendline adjoining recent bottoms on the weekly chart is placed.

US Fed will issue a statement at the end of its tow-day meeting. The focus would be on whether the central bank reiterates its vow to maintain rates low for a considerable period amid signs of slowing growth in rest of the world.
