OUTLOOK
Today morning, Nikkei is up nearly a percent and half, other Asian markets are trading with modest gains but SGX Nifty is suggesting about 20 points lower opening for our market.
Nifty continues to be in a broad consolidation after hitting a record high of 8627 in early December. The consolidation is taking a form of a triangle with the benchmark making lower tops and higher bottoms on the daily chart. 8446 and 8065, the top and bottom made last week, are the important resistance and support levels to eye from a larger perspective.
In yesterday’s report we had mentioned that the immediate support on the hourly chart is placed at 8235 with the stop loss of which trading longs should be held on to. The benchmark, after touching a low of 8237, bounced back to end at 8278.
8235 continues to be immediate support a sustained trading below which would confirm a sell on the hourly chart and can take benchmark in the vicinity of the 8065, the lower level of the 8446-8065 range mentioned above. On the way up 8357, the top made on Tuesday, is the immediate resistance, above which 8446 would be the major hurdle to eye.
