OUTLOOK
Today morning Asian markets are trading with modest cuts and SGX Nifty is suggesting a flattish start for our market.
In yesterday’s report we had mentioned that after a gap up opening, Nifty would be close to the important 34-DMA resistance placed around 8770, a decisive crossover of which is required for the further upmove.
The benchmark touched a high of 8788 in the initial trade but could not sustain there and plunged all the way to end at 8635.
34-DMA, which has now moved to 8760, continues to be important hurdle, a close above which is required to put bulls in the dominating position. On the way down, 8540 and 8404, the 50% and 61.8% retracement levels of the 7961-9119 upmove, are the support levels to eye.
Traders can initiate fresh short positions once Nifty trades below 8612, the bottom made on Monday, with the stop loss of 8690, the immediate resistance on the hourly chart.

The Lok Sabha is likely to take up today the cabinet-approved anti-black-money bill that proposes a short window to overseas income tax assesses to declare assets, pay tax and penalty and avoid imprisonment.
