Throughout last month, the lower end of the gap 9600-9550 acted as a sturdy wall and this time the same zone, is now likely to be seen as a sheet anchor (till the time it remains unfilled). We have now reached 9900-9950, which coincides with the 89 EMA on daily chart and is considered to be a decent resistance. But the way charts are shaped up, the possibility of surpassing it and heading towards 10000-10200 cannot be ruled out. For the day, 9750 followed by 9680 can be seen as immediate support."
