Market Overview for 27th April 2015 Post positive breather Nifty saw a fall for the second straight day. Nifty hit between 8270-8290 levels which was our crucial support and bounced back to close above 8300 mark. If Nifty continues falling for the third day of rally and breaches 8270 on the downside we hold 8150 followed by 8065 levels in the near term. If these levels are broken 8000-7950 are the major support levels. However, it’s the third time that Nifty has touched the said low near 8270 and bounced back. So if nifty sees fresh buying from here we maintain 8360-8390 as the immediate resistance followed by 8420-8470. Stocks to watch for: ACC and ITC on the upside while Cipla and Dish TV on the downside
