US indices surged between 1.7%-2.1% with the Dow marking its best session of the year, as energy sector rallied on rebound in oil and the Federal Reserve’s pledge to be patient in raising interest rates.

Addressing a televised news conference, Fed Chair Janet Yellen said the new language was not a change in policy, and that a rate increase was unlikely for “at least the next couple of meetings.”
A rebound in oil prices, after U.S. data showed falling crude inventories, also boosted the sentiment. Nymex oil rose 54 cents to $56.47 a barrel. Brent rose $1.2 to $61.2.

OUTLOOK
Today morning, Nikkei is up about 2.5%, other Asian markets are trading with gains of upto a percent and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 75 points higher opening for our market.
In yesterday’s report we had mentioned that while Nifty has achieved the downside target of 8070, the view will continue to be bearish until we see a resumption of the higher-top higher-bottom formation. We had also mentioned 7950 as the next support where a trendline adjoining recent bottoms on the weekly chart was placed.
Nifty, in the first hour of trade, touched a low of 7961, nearly achieving the target mentioned above, from where it rebounded smartly to end at 8030.
7950 continues to be important immediate support, a breach of which would open up the possibility of the retest of the 7724 bottom made in October.
On the way up, immediate resistance on the hourly chart has moved lower to 8230, a crossover of which is required to generate a buy on the hourly chart and put bulls in the dominating position. Till then every rally should be taken with a pinch of a salt.
