The resistance level for the Nifty is at 13,050 and if we can cross that, we could head to 13,200 by next week. A strong support lies at 12,800 and thereafter at 12,500. It is only post the breaking of 12,500 that we would consider a short term correction. Until then, the trend remains bullish with a strong upside momentum.

Invest in mid-small-caps through mutual funds.
