Author’s View: Nifty tested support at 12,800 and bounced from there. This has happened a couple of times in the recent past as well. The underlying trend remains intact as long as this support is decisively broken and every dip can be utilized to initiate a fresh long position. On the upside, Nifty might face some resistance at 13,000-13,050 level. We are bullish on market and Nifty seems to be in a strong up-trend.
