According to Technical Analyst Prakash Gaba of prakashgaba.com, the next logical target would be 9724. The Nifty traded with volatility but closed flat for the day managing to stay above our crucial support of 9630. Technically, the Nifty is in a sideways mode and is not yielding as yet and so 9630 and 9580 are still strong supports to deal with. The crucial support for the Nifty is at 9630-9580 and the resistance is at 9724.

Prakash Gaba also said, "There will be an upmove today on Reliance Industries possibly on the upside because there is so much of contraction, expansion has to take place. If that happens, RIL can climb to levels closer to Rs 1,350 to Rs 1,360 zones."

"Cipla is looking good to me. It can climb up, I also like Aurobindo Pharma, it has seen a good upmove and perhaps we can see Aurobindo climbing to levels closer to Rs 640."
"Adani Ports looks weak and you can see a slide to levels closer to Rs 345-350 zones. Even TCS looking weak, it can slide down to levels close to Rs 2,460, so I will be short here."Disclaimer
