For the coming week, the level of 5,530 should be watched cautiously. Failure to close above this level will trigger further unwinding of longs and selling pressure. On the downside, 5,350 is the next major support for Nifty. On the higher side, a pullback can be expected if Nifty stays above 5,530 for a minimum of 5,630 level and a maximum of 5,700 level.

The broader strategy should be to reduce longs at each major resistance level. Banking, oil and gas and engineering are the sectors that will remain in limelight during the week.
