In yesterday’s report we had mentioned that the near term view in Nifty has turned bullish as the benchmark has closed above the 61.8% retracement level of the 8627-7961 fall and also regained higher-top higher-bottom formation on the daily chart.
We had also mentioned that 8500 is the immediate target above which 8627 would be the next target and had advised staying long with the stop loss of 8280.
Nifty, yesterday, after touching a high of 8446 in the initial trade, reversed to end at 8378 and is set to open with a downward gap today, which will take it close to the immediate support on the hourly chart, which is now placed around 8290. A sustained trading below 8290 would generate a sell on the hourly chart and would pave the way for the further correction.
On the way up, 8446, the top made yesterday, would now act as the immediate resistance, a crossover of which would be required to take the benchmark to higher levels.

Traders are advised to keep a stop loss of 8290 in trading longs.
