Although Nifty took a break at 17,835 yesterday, we are not convinced that Nifty has broken through. This encourages us to continue with the 18200 view, but with VIX falling, trading ranges are narrowing. Bearish markers may continue to hold near 17660/690, with the vicinity of 17900 likely to pose an intraday challenge.
