Ashish Chaturmohta, VP- Derivatives and Technical Analyst, IIFL Private Wealth Management advice traders to exit from SBI around Rs 1940- 1960 levels.
Chaturmohta told CNBC-TV18, "SBI, in the last three-four trading sessions when markets were correcting the stock was not reacting to it and we have seen a good base between Rs 1,800 to Rs 1,850 odd levels. So I think there can be a short covering. I believe in future SBI can test Rs 1,950-1,970 levels but around those levels this stock may face lot of selling pressure so ideally Rs 1,940 to Rs 1,960 would be a good level to exit in long positions."
