Nifty ended the past week on a positive note despite volatility. The index touched an intraday low of 10,628 on January 4 and a high of 10,870 on January 9.

Nifty50 tried to make multiple attempts to break out of the range but the follow up buying which was needed was clearly missing. It consolidated in a slender range of merely 140 points, which is way below its average weekly range.

For the index to move higher, Nifty50 has to climb above 10,870-10,950, while on the downside, a break below 10,733 could result in further profit booking.

“Market participants were keenly awaiting a decisive breakout from this range; but every attempt (on both sides) eventually turned unsuccessful. Technically speaking, prices have been vacillating within the boundaries of a ‘Triangle’ as well as the ‘Diamond’ pattern and we are very close to the apex point,” Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst- Technical & Derivatives, Angel Broking told Moneycontrol.

“Considering the overall development in the broader market as well as the heavyweight banking basket, our inclination is more on the positive side. A move beyond the higher end of 10870 would unfold the next leg of the rally towards 10970 – 11150 levels. However, in case of a breach below 10733, this would certainly not bode well for the bulls,” he said.

In such scenarios, Chavan advises investors that one should wait for a confirmation to place aggressive bets. Until then a prudent strategy would be to focus on individual stocks by following a proper exit strategy.

Mahindra & Mahindra: Buy| LTP: Rs 728| Target: Rs 790| Stop Loss: Rs 710| Return 8.5%

This counter appears to be in a multi-week consolidation mode and moving in a large range of 800 – 700 levels. Interestingly, after a recent cut from the highs of 810, this counter appears to be moving in a narrow range of 712 – 730 for last six sessions hinting at a possible short term bottom.

In that case, if it starts rallying, ultimately it should test the upper end of the larger trading range placed around 800.

As the risk-reward ratios will be favourable, positional traders are advised to buy into this counter for a target of 790 and a stop below 710 on a closing basis.

Bosch: Buy| LTP: Rs 19514| Target: Rs 20500| Stop Loss: Rs 19,150| Return 5%

Hence, one can buy into this counter in anticipation of a breakout above 20,000. In that scenario, the initial target can be placed at 20500 levels. A stop suggested for the trade is a close below 19150.

Welspun Corp: Buy| LTP: Rs 137| Target: Rs 154| Stop Loss: Rs 129| Return 12%
