OUTLOOK
Today morning except a modestly higher Nikkei, other Asian markets are trading with cuts in the vicinity of half a percent and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 75 points lower opening for our market.
Readers would recall that we have been maintaining our negative bias on Nifty since 8850 was broken on 30th January. We were working with a downside target of 8640, which is the 38.2% retracement level of the 8065-8997 upmove seen in January.
The benchmark touched a low of 8645 on Friday, nearly achieving this target and vindicating our view.
Nifty however is set to open with a downward gap today which will result in the breach of 8640 support. Next level to watch in that case would be 8530, the 50% retracement level of the 8065-8997 upmove. Also you have 34-DMA placed around 8500, which makes region in the vicinity of 8500 a crucial support area.
On the way up, immediate resistance on the hourly chart has moved lower to around 8740, with the stop loss of which short positions can be held on to.
