OUTLOOK
Today morning, Asian markets are trading with gains of 0.4%-1.4% with Hang Seng on the top and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 50 points higher start for our market.
Yesterday, Nifty, after touching a high of 8827, eased to end at 8777, extending the consolidation within the 8690-8860 range we have been talking for past couple of days.
A gap up opening today would take the benchmark back near the high made yesterday.
8860, the upper level of the gap created by the big gap-down opening last Monday, continues to be immediate hurdle to eye, above which 8970, the top made earlier this month, would be the next big resistance to eye. 8690, the bottom made last week, continues to be important immediate support.

Meanwhile, 8750 is where a double-bottom on the hourly chart is placed and traders can use this level as the stop-loss in long positions once they are initiated if Nifty is able to take out 8960 hurdle.
