OUTLOOK
China’s December CPI is up 2.1% as against a poll of 2.3% rise. PPI is up 5.5%, higher than the expectations of a 4.5% rise and marking the fastest rise in more than 5 years.
Today morning Asian markets are trading mixed with modest changes and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 20 points higher start for our market.
Nifty has been in a consolidation mode after achieving the major 8275 target. 8275, as we have been mentioning, is the top made in December and also coincides with the 200-DMA and therefore a decisive crossover of this level is required for the fresh upmove. If that happens, 8400-8450 would emerge as the next target area.
Immediate support on the hourly chart continues to be placed at 8200, with the stop-loss of which existing longs can be held on to.
