Today morning, Nikkei is up about a percent, Shanghai is flat but other Asian markets are down 0.5%-1.5%. SGX Nifty is suggesting about 130 points lower start for our market.
In yesterday’s report we had mentioned that 8500 is the immediate hurdle on the hourly chart above which 34-DMA, placed around 8650 would be the next target to eye.
The benchmark crossed 8500 mark in the opening trade itself and surged all the way to 8598 but eased from there to close at 8526.
A gap down opening today would take Nifty closer to 8400.
34-DMA as well a downward sloping trendline adjoining major tops on daily chart is now placed around 8640, which would act as an important immediate hurdle, a decisive crossover of which is required to turn the short term view bullish. On the way down, 8370, the 38.2% retracement level of the big 8000-8600 pullback, is the immediate support, upon breach of which 8300 and 8230, the 50% and 61.8% retracement levels of the aforementioned upmove, would be the next downside targets as well as support levels to eye.
