    The hourly chart shows that the index has halted at a rising trend line, which is near 11955. If the bears manage to break through the trend line then the probability will increase significantly in favor of a minor degree decline; back to 11800-11700. So the traders are recommended to stay on the sideline till further evidences emerge.

    Ajit Mishra Vice President, Research, Religare Broking:
    We strongly feel that markets are set for profit taking or consolidation prior to further rise. Traders should limit their naked leveraged trades in the index and book profits on every rise. In case of decline, 11,800-11,850 zone would act as a cushion in the Nifty. Stocks, on the other hand, would continue to see movement on both sides thus maintain extra caution in the stock selection.
