Nifty                               7954     +18 

Nifty made another all time closing high and closed with a gain of 18 point amid narrow and choppy movement. August Derivative series and month closed at the highest level. However, a wide range can be expected early next week in view of the very narrow trading range days in the last Two weeks. However, Nifty continued to close above 7900 mark and short term bullishness would be terminated only if it closes  below 7860 and further strength would be reinforced only when it surpasses 8000 mark . Nifty spot is expected to encounter resistance at 8000, 8035 and find support at 7915, 7875 for Monday. While Global cues  and  Funds flow  are expected to broadly guide the market movement, based on the present market position, market can be expected to display general bullishness in the forenoon session and the closing session quite crucial in view of the likely huge volatility.
