Bulls stretch their arms:
After a brief consolidation for the last few sessions, the Nifty managed to surpass the crucial hurdle of 13000 on a closing basis. This suggests that the bulls are determined to drive the index higher. The hourly Bollinger Bands that had become flat has started expansion, which is in line with the fresh upmove. Going ahead, 13100 is the immediate hurdle to watch out for. Beyond that the index can march towards the short term target of 13350. On the flipside, 12960, which was earlier acting as a resistance, will now act as a support as per the principle of role reversal. So the near-term support zone for the Nifty shifts higher to 12900-12960.
