After Nifty nearly achieved the major 9000 target, we had said that the immediate support on the hourly chart is placed at 8850, a breach of which would generate a sell on the hourly chart and would pave the way for the further correction.

8900, the 61.8% retracement level of the recent 8997-8751 fall, is the immediate resistance to eye, a crossover of which is required to put bulls back in the dominating position. On the way down 8640, the 38.2% retracement level of the 8065-8997 upmove, would be immediate support to eye.
