Nifty, after touching a high of 8683 in the initial trade, fell sharply to close at 8592, extending the volatile consolidation within the 8730-8580 range we have been talking about.
8580 to 8540 continues to be important support area, where 8580 is the bottom made earlier during the week, which also coincided with 34-DMA on that day, and 8540 is where the lower band of bollinger on the daily chart is placed. A breach of this support area would open up the possibility of the larger retracement of the 7927-8728 upmove and first major support to eye in that case would be 8420, the 38.2% retracement level fo this upmove.
8700-8730 continues to be the important hurdle area, a decisive crossover of which is required for the fresh upmove.
