In Friday’s report we had mentioned that 8300, the 61.8% retracement level of the recent 8446-8065 fall, would be the important immediate hurdle to eye and had therefore advised booking profits in trading longs around 8300.
The benchmark after touching a high of 8303 in the initial trade, plunged all the way to 8190, before recovering to end at 8284.
8300 continues to be the immediate hurdle a crossover of which would generate a buy on the hourly chart and would pave the way for the further upside till about 8446, the top made last week. On the way down 8190, the bottom made on Friday, would be the immediate support.
Traders are advised to wait for the crossover of 8300 for taking fresh longs.
