OUTLOOK
In the early Asia trade, British pound plunged sharply to as low as $1.1819 briefly, before climbing back up to around $1.2357.
Asian markets are trading with modest cuts but SGX Nifty is suggesting about 10 points higher start for our market.
In yesterday’s report we had reiterated the view that 8800 and 8690 continues to be immediate resistance and support levels respectively, a sustained crossover of either of which is required for the fresh directional view.
Nifty, after touching a high of 8781 in the morning trade, plunged sharply to 8685 but recovered somewhat towards the close to end at 8710, broadly holding 8800-8690 range.
A sustained trading below 8690 would generate a sell on the hourly chart and next support to eye in that case would be around 8600. 8800 continues to be immediate hurdle on the way up, upon crossover of which, 8890 would be the next target to eye.

Key data to eye today would be the US September non-farm payroll which could provide some insight into the timing of an interest rate hike by the U.S. Federal Reserve. According to expectations U.S. economy added 175,000 jobs and unemployment held steady at 4.9%.
