The current market price (CMP) of the Nifty Consumption Index is 7,990.80. It is anticipated that the index may encounter strong resistance around the 8,025 level. A trade and close above this range would indicate a breakout, potentially leading to the next resistance levels at 8,145 and 8,425. On the lower side, if the index breaks below 7,910 and closes below this level, the next support on the charts is expected around 7,725. 

Traders should closely monitor these support and resistance levels for potential trading opportunities. Based on the analysis, the recommended trading strategy would be to buy the index only if it surpasses the 8025 resistance level. This strategy aims to capitalize on a potential breakout and further upside momentum. Conversely, selling the index would be advisable if it falls below the 7,910 support level. This strategy aims to take advantage of potential downside movements.

In summary, the Nifty Consumption Index is facing a stiff resistance level around 8,025, and a breakout above this range could lead to further upward movement. On the other hand, breaking below the 7,910 level could result in downside pressure. Traders are advised to buy the index above 8,025 and sell below 7,910, aligning their trades with the respective breakout or breakdown levels.
