India’s current account deficit for the July-September quarter rose marginally to USD 10.1 bn (2.1% of GDP) from USD 7.8 billion (1.7% of GDP) on account of higher trade deficit contributed by both a deceleration in export growth and a n increase in gold imports.
OUTLOOK
Today morning Asian markets are trading with cuts of upto a percent and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 20 points lower opening for our market.
Ever since Nifty made an all-time closing high on 28th November, we have been mentioning that a negative divergence on daily chart has occurred which suggests that some sort of fatigue is setting in. We had also cautioned that a breach of 8500 would generate a sell on the hourly chart and could take Nifty to 8430 and then to 8350.
Nifty yesterday broke the 8500 support and plunged all the way to 8432, vindicating our view.
The benchmark continues to be in the sell mode on the hourly chart and next support on the way down continues to be about 8350.

On the way up, immediate resistance on the hourly chart is placed around 8530, with the stop loss of which, short positions can be held on to.
