CMP: 73.92, Target: 74.60, Stop Loss: 72.70
Trade: Bias for the pair remains sideways-to-positive as long as 72.70 is held as strong support. However, upside too will be capped at 74.60 as it will act as strong resistance. Buying around 73.35 is advised.
Trade: The pair is likely to trade with negative bias and it looks to target 1.1500. Selling on rise around 1.1700 is advised but our bias will negate if price break below 1.1800.
