    Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments:

    The index is getting nervous at higher levels and today was no different. Every time it goes closer to the 15900 level, it is facing bouts of selling pressures as a result of which it takes a U-turn and collapses. Short term and medium term supports lie at 15600 and 15400 respectively and as long as these are holding on a closing basis, the propensity of the market continues to be on the upside.
