·         As shown in the chart below, Nifty is on the cusp of a major breakout. After making a top of 6357 in 2008, Nifty plunged all the way to 2252 in October 2008. From there it rebounded back to 6338 in November 2010, made a double top and fell to 4531 in December 2011.

·         The benchmark is now again near the two erstwhile tops. If these tops are taken out, it would confirm a major breakout from a long-long consolidation of nearly six years. This in turn would project major upmove over next couple of years.

·        The triangle formed by 6338-4531 range projects a target of about 8150, which can materialise over one and half to two years.

·    Moving forward, if one takes the triangle formed by 6357-2252 range, the target comes to about 10460, which can materialise over next 3-4 years.

·     On the way down, trendline adjoining two major bottoms, viz. 920 in 2003 and 2252 in 2008, presents a solid support around 5100.

Today morning Asian markets are trading mixed with modest changes and SGX Nifty is suggesting about 25 points higher opening for our market.

In our latest weekly as well as subsequent daily reports we had been mentioning that Nifty can retest the 6650-6665 bottom if sustains below 6773. We had also been mentioning that 6665 is the important near term support, a breach of which will break the higher-top higher-bottom formation on the daily chart. Nifty, on Friday, after touching a low of 6657, bounced back smartly to close at 6696, and is set to open about 30 points higher today, vindicating our view perfectly.

As long as Nifty holds 6665, the correction over past four should be seen as a healthy one.

Immediate resistance on the hourly chart is placed around 6780, a crossover of which would generate a buy signal on the hourly chart and would pave the way for the retest of the 6870 top made last week.

Traders are advised to wait for the crossover of 6780 for building fresh longs. Existing longs should carry a stop loss of 6665 on closing basis.

In the US, April employment report will be released today, which is expected to show an addition of 210000 jobs.
