The Nifty finally managed to hit the 15900 level but ended up closing a tad below. The zone of 15900-16100 is a resistance block and traders should be cautious around these levels. A buy on dips approach would be a prudent form of trading this patch. 15700-15750 is a good support for the index and as long as that does not break, we are in the territory of the bulls!
