Outlook for Thursday:-

· A lot of selling has happened around 5368 levels and if that is not crossed, we will see levels below 4800 for the Nifty.

· 5180 and 5240 are resistance for today. Bulls have to sustain above these levels to post a big rally else 5000 is a possibility today itself.

· DLF (815):- Buy around 800-810 with SL below 770. Target of 880-890 can be reached in a week’s time.

· Tech stocks are witnessing good buying on account of Rupee depreciation. We have to see if that continues. Tech Mah and TCS can be good for investment at current levels.
