OUTLOOK
Today morning Nikkei and Hang Seng are down about a fourth of a percent, other Asian markets are flat to modestly higher and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 10 points lower start for our market.
At the risk of repeating, Nifty continues to be in the consolidation mode for three weeks and yesterday was another day added in that tradition.
34-DMA has now moved up to 8570, which, along with immediate previous bottom of 8540, makes 8570-8540 an important support area. 8420, the 38.2% retracement level of the 7927-8728 umove, would be next support if 8540 is taken out. 8700-8730 continues to be the supply area on the way up, a decisive crossover of which is required for the fresh upmove.

Tata Power and Aurobindo Pharma will report their quarterly earnings today.
