I would love to see our markets consolidating here for a few days. This can lead to the next round of rally. Steep rallies are bound to give steep pull-backs.
Today’s close is very important as it is weekly close. Let us hope there is no big profit booking considering the up-move we had.
I will be closely watching 18,670 on the downside and 18,890 on the upside.
