OUTLOOK
Today morning, Shanghai and Hang Seng are up nearly a percent, other Asian markets are trading mixed with modest changes and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 10 points higher opening for our market.
After Nifty nearly achieved 8640 target on Monday, we had asked to trail the stop loss in long positions to 8500. Nifty has been honouring this support for past three sessions.
8500 continues to be the immediate support, a sustained trading below which would generate a sell on the hourly chart and would pave the way for the further correction till about 8430 and then to 8350.
8640 continues to be immediate target above which 8730 would be the next level to eye.

Key data to watch out today would be US November nonfarm payroll number, which is expected to show an addition of 230000 jobs, which would be 10th straight month of 2 lac plus job addition. Unemployment rate is likely to hold steady at 5.8%.
