OUTLOOK
Mainland Chinese markets are shut for the Golden Week public holidays. Other Asian markets are trading with gains of 0.2%-0.6% and SGX Nifty is suggesting a flattish start for our market.
Readers would recall that after Nifty rebounded from the vicinity of the crucial 8540 support we had mentioned that 8740 is the immediate hurdle, a sustained trading above which will generate a buy on the hourly chart and would pave the way for further upmove.
The benchmark soared to touch a high of 8745 and closed at 8738, kissing the 8740 hurdle mentioned above.
Upon crossover of 8745, next target to eye would be 8800, which was the top made last Thursday, when the announcement of “surgical strike” came. Above 8800, 8893 the top made on 22nd September, would be the bigger hurdle to eye.
Traders can initiate long positions with the stop-loss of 8690, which is the immediate support on the hourly chart, once 8745 is crossed.

Key event to watch out today would be the interest rate decision to be taken by the newly formed Monetary Policy Committee. Till now, the decision to fix the policy rates was entirely in the hands of the RBI Governor. From now on, however, it will be decided by the MPC, comprising three members from the RBI and three others nominated by the government, with the Governor (Patel) holding the veto power to vote in case of a tie. Arguments in support of a rate cut stem from a good monsoon in most parts of the country, industrial growth contracting 2.4% in August and GDP growth slowing to 7.1% in the June quarter from 7.9% in the preceding one. Consumer inflation has fallen to 5.05% in August from 6.07% a month earlier (July). However, some argue that the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) may just want to wait a little longer before resorting to any monetary easing. The decision will be out at 2.30 pm, followed by RBI governor’s press conference at 2.45 pm.
