OUTLOOK
Today morning, Asian markets are trading with modest gains and SGX Nifty is suggesting a flattish start for our market.
Just to reiterate, we have held negative bias on Nifty since 8850, the immediate support on the hourly chart was broken on 30th January. We had given an initial downside target of 8640, which was the 38.2% retracement level of the 8065-8997 upmove below which we had said that 8500, in the vicinity of which 34-DMA is placed, would be an important support to eye.
Yesterday, the benchmark, after touching a low of 8470 in the initial trade, finally ended at 8565, holding 34-DMA support on closing basis.

Traders are advised to book profits in short positions and initiate fresh ones if 8500 is breached on closing basis. On the way up, 8650-8700 is the immediate resistance zone, a crossover of which would generate a buy on the hourly chart and would pave the way for the further upside till about 8800, which is the 61.8% retracement level of the recent 8997-8470 fall.
