OUTLOOK
Today morning Asian markets are trading with modest cuts and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 30 points lower opening for our market.
Nifty yesterday touched a high of 8323, coming in very close to the target of 8640 we had given after 8520 target was achieved. From there it witnessed profit booking and finally settled at 8556.
On Friday, when Nifty ended at record high, RSI on daily chart made a lower top, giving rise to negative divergence. This indicates that there is fatigue setting in. Immediate support on the hourly chart has moved up to 8500, which should serve as the stop loss for trading longs. 8640 continues to be immediate target above which 8730 would be the next target to eye.

All eyes would be on RBI monetary policy review today. Given the central bank’s aggressive stance to achieve 6% inflation by Jan 2016, markets are not expecting rates to be cut in this policy but the tone of the policy statement is likely to be dovish to build in a case for a rate cut going ahead. There is some expectation of an SLR cut though.
