OUTLOOK
Today morning Asian markets are trading with cuts in the vicinity of half a percent and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 30 points lower opening for our market.
In yesterday’s report we had mentioned that 7950-7925 continues to be a crucial support zone, a breach of which would confirm a lower-top lower-bottom formation on the daily chart. The benchmark tumbled 91 points to settle at 7912, breaking this support.
This opens up the possibility of the larger retracement of the recent 7540-8180 upmove. 7860 and 7785, the 50% and 61.8% retracement levels of this upmove are the next support levels to eye. Immediate resistance on the hourly chart has now moved to 8060, a crossover of which is required to generate a buy on the hourly chart and bring bulls back in the game.
Till then keep wearing your bearish mask.
