OUTLOOK
Today morning, except a 0.3% higher Nikkei, other Asian markets are trading with cuts of upto half a percent and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 10 points lower start for our market.
After six consecutive up days, Nifty has been in a consolidation mode over last two days which should be considered healthy. 8240 continues to be the immediate support on the hourly chart with the stop loss of which trading longs can be held on to.
8655, the top made last July, which is also the 52-week high, continues to be the major upside target to eye as we have been mentioning.

Key data to watch out today would be the US June non-farm payroll where markets would be watching for signs that May’s disappointing headline figure of 38000 was an exception. The figure this time expected is 175000.
