The unemployment rate held steady at 5.5%, in line with expectations while wages increased slightly more than estimated at 0.3%.

Today morning Bourses in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan are shut for the Ching Ming Festival. Nikkei is trading modestly lower while SGX Nifty is trading around 8680, which is about 50 points higher than Wednesday’s close of Nifty future.
In Wednesday’s report we had mentioned that one should stay long with the stop loss of 8450 and that a crossover of 8550 can take Nifty to around 8710, where the 34-DMA is placed.

The benchmark, after touching a low of 8465 in the initial trade, surged to end at 8586 and is set to open further higher today. 8710, the 34-DMA, continues to be the major upside target. 8450 continues to be the immediate support with the stop loss of which trading longs should be held on to.
