Readers would recall that after Nifty broke the 20-DMA support of 8057, we were working with downside target of 8057 and had also said that a breach of 8057 would open up the possibility of retest of 7916 bottom.
Nifty yesterday plunged all the way to 7965 before closing at 7979, moving towards 7916 target.
7916 continues to be major support to eye. As we had mentioned in our previous interactions, 7900 is the 50% retracement level of the entire 6825-8970 upmove and if this level is breached decisively, next meaningful support will come around 7650, which is the 61.8% retracement level of the aforementioned upmove.
