Markets on Sep 11, 2009: Sideways

After a breakout from the range (4700-4350) at the start of the week on Monday, the market traded sideways around 4850 the following days. The market continued to be in the range for the third consecutive day between 4780-4860 today. In the first half of today’s session Nifty traded lower as selling pressure continued around the resistance level of 4850, but it recovered well from its lows in the second half and managed to close marginally positive. This suggests that 4850 and 4890 remain very crucial resistances and a close above that will lead to another leg of rally; till then 4750-4700 remains good supports on the lower side. So, as long as these levels are held on, we maintain are bias up for the target of 5000 and the reversal down below 4575. Nifty is currently
