OUTLOOK
Today morning Nikkei is up more than a percent on the back of weakness in Yen. Shanghai is down more than a percent on the other hand. Other Asian markets are trading with gains of upto half a percent and SGX Nifty is suggesting a flattish start for our market.
Ever since Nifty crossed the 38.2% retracement level of the 8627-7961 placed at 8216, we had given upside targets of 8294 and 8373 and had advised booking profit in long positions as the 8373 approaches as that is the 61.8% retracement level of the 8627-7961 fall and roughly coincides with the 34 DMA resistance.
The benchmark, after touching a high of 8365, plunged to 8267, nearly achieving the upside target and also vindicated our profit booking stance.
8373 continues to be important resistance to cross, only above which we would say that the recent pullback has the potential to turn the near term trend positive.
8200-8170 is the immediate support area on the hourly chart, a breach of which can take Nifty back to the 7961 bottom.

Indian markets will remain shut tomorrow on account of Christmas.
