OUTLOOK
Today morning Asian markets are trading flat to modestly lower and SGX Nifty is suggesting a marginally higher start for our market.
Just to recall, we had been working with a major target of 8970 after 8560, the 61.8% retracement level of the entire 8970-7893 fall, was taken out in late January. The benchmark touched a high of 8961 yesterday, nearly achieving this target and vindicating our view.
8970 is the top made in September 2016 and hence a major ceiling, a decisive crossover of which is required for a fresh upmove. While 9119, the top made in March 2015, would be the immediate target if that happens, eventual target of this near 2-year consolidation breakout would come to around 10000.

Meanwhile, immediate support on the hourly chart has moved up to 8830, which should serve as the stop-loss for existing longs.
