OUTLOOK
Today morning, Nikkei, buoyed by hopes of further stimulus and weakness in Yen, is up more than 2% but other Asian markets are trading with cuts of 0.3%-0.6% and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 20 points lower start for our market.
For past couple of weeks we have been mentioning that Nifty, after a steep run-up of about 10% between June end to July period, is in a consolidation mode and 8700-8730 is the supply area while 8580-8540 is the floor of this consolidation.
Nifty, after touching a low of 8547 on Friday, recovered somewhat to close at 8572, testing the lower range of the trading range mentioned above. The benchmark however ended below the 34-DMA for the first time since 34th May.
8540, where the lower band of bollinger on daily chart is placed, is the final hope for the bulls, a decisive breach of which will turn the outlook negative for the near term and would pave the way for the larger retracement of the 7927-8728 upmove. 8420, the 38.2% retracement level of this upmove, would be the first downside target if that happens. 8630, the 20 DMA, is the immediate hurdle above which 8730 would be the major resistance to eye.
