OUTLOOK
Today morning Nikkei is down about a percent and half, other Asian markets are trading mixed with modest changes and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 60 points lower opening for our market.
Just to reiterate, ever since Nifty broke 6570, which was the 38.2% retracement level of the 7961-9119 upmove, we have been working with the major downside target of 8404, which is the 61.8% retracement level of this upmove. We had also said that before that 8470, the bottom made in February, would be the intermediate target. The benchmark ended at 8530 yesterday and is set to open with a downward gap today, achieving the 8470 target and coming in closer to the 8404 target.
Traders would do well to book profit in short positions in 8470-8404 area as apart from 8404 being important Fibonacci support, a trendline adjoining recent bottoms on the weekly chart is also placed in the vicinity of this level.

Meanwhile, immediate resistance on the hourly chart has moved to around 8590, which should serve as the stop loss for the short positions.
