Mr. Aamar Deo Singh - Head Advisory, Angel Broking Ltd
"Markets witnessed selling pressure amidst profit-booking and weak global sentiments and the benchmark index Nifty 50 ended the day @ 11516, down 88 points. Declines outnumbered advances 5:4, indicating interesting tussle between the Bulls and the Bears. Amongst the Nifty Top 3 gainers were Dr. Reddy, Zee and HCL Technology whereas Hindalco, Tata Motors and Shree Cement were the Top 3 Nifty Losers. It appears that Nifty is unable to breach and hold above the 11600 mark, which is a crucial resistance. The overall uptrend remains intact, but for any meaningful rally towards 11750-11800 zone, 11600 level needs to be overcome. On the downside, 11200-11300 is key zone of support."
