OUTLOOK
Today morning Asian markets are trading mixed with modest changes and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 20 points higher start for our market.
Last week was not different in the overall scheme of things as the benchmark extended the two-week old consolidation by trading in less than 100 point range and within the 8730 hurdle and 8540 floor, which we have been mentioning as the consolidation zone.
As we have been mentioning, 8540 is the immediate previous bottom on the dally chart and 34-DMA has now moved up to 8560, which makes 8560-8540 important immediate support area to eye. On the way up 8700-8730 has been the strong supply area over last three weeks, a decisive crossover of which is required for the fresh upmove. If that happens, 8845, the top made in April 2015, would be the next target, followed by 9015 or so.
