Today morning Asian markets are trading with gains of 0.5%-1.5% and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 20 points higher start for our market.
In yesterday's report we had reiterated the view that 8150, the 61.8% retracement level of the recent 8286-7927 fall, is the immediate hurdle, a sustained trading above which is required for the further upmove. The benchmark, after touching a high of 8146, eased to close at 8128.
A positive start today would again take the benchmark closer to 8150 mark. Also you have the upper level of the gap created by the gap down opening on Friday placed at 8188. This makes 8150-8188 a potential resistance area. Above 8188, one would again look at the big 8295 hurdle which has been the ceiling since early June.
We have been advising keep trading volumes low in Nifty and look for stock specific opportunities till the former makes a fresh directional move and that continues to be the view.
