OUTLOOK
Today morning Nikkei is down nearly a percent and the yen is trading stronger against the dollar after Bank of Japan governor, in a BBC interview broadcast yesterday, ruled out the possibility of “helicopter money” – the colloquial name for “money-financed fiscal programs” – to tackle deflation in Japan, amid building expectations that policymakers were gearing up to introduce more stimulus.
Other Asian markets are trading with cuts of upto half a percent and SGX Nifty is suggesting a flattish start for our market.
Readers would recall that in the latest weekly and subsequent daily reports we had mentioned that after a steep run-up, Nifty had formed a negative divergence on the hourly chart and a consolidation/correction in the short term cannot be ruled out.
The benchmark has traded in a narrow range this week and yesterday, after touching a high of 8585, slipped to end at 8510, vindicating above view.
As we have been mentioning, 8595, the top made last week, continues to be the immediate hurdle to eye, a crossover of which is required for fresh upmove. On the way down 8475 continues to be immediate support, a breach of which can take Nifty to 8400.

Axis Bank will report its quarterly earnings today.
