OUTLOOK
Today morning Asian markets are trading mixed with modest changes and SGX Nifty is suggesting a flattish start for our market.
In yesterday’s report we had mentioned that Nifty is finding it difficult to cross the 8711 decisively and had reiterated the view that 8610 is the immediate support, which should serve as the stop-loss for trading longs.
The benchmark broke 8610 support and fell to 8565 before closing at 8575.
34-DMA, placed around 8490, is the next important support to eye.
Considering the fact that the benchmark has turned volatile at higher level, traders would do well to keep volumes low and let the benchmark settle down before taking a fresh view.

Grasim and BoB will report its quarterly earnings today.
