OUTLOOK
Today morning, Nikkei is up about half a percent, other Asian markets are trading flat to modestly higher and SGX Nifty is suggesting a marginally higher start for our market.
As we have been mentioning, Nifty is in a consolidation mode for more than two-weeks after a big 10% upmove since June 24. We have also been mentioning that this consolidation should be considered healthy and overall bias would continue to be positive until higher-top higher-bottom formation on the daily chart is intact. However, we have been advising trading light in Nifty till the benchmark beaks out of this consolidation.
8710-8730 has been the supply area in this consolidation phase and crossover of the same is required for fresh upmove. 8845, the top made in April 2015, would be the next target if that happens.

34-DMA, which has now moved up to 8560 and immediate previous bottom on the daily chart placed at 8540, make 8560-8540 an important support area.
