Last week saw a massive sell-off in Nifty due to news flow around rupee and crude but the week ended almost sideways with Nifty showing a mere 74 points decline on a weekly basis. Nifty recovered from a strong support of 50-DMA and closed above 5-DMA.
At the same time, Bullish AB=CD Harmonic pattern formed on an hourly chart of Nifty signifies that this sustained pullback above 11,385 levels can extend for the second target of the harmonic pattern which is seen near 11,560 as it is near 61.8 percent of A to D leg.
Now, the question is whether the recent correction is a temporary blip or would be a prolonged one. This week movement would be critical to decide the same.
Interestingly, RSI tilted up from the bottom level of 40 (RSI CHANNEL) while retracement was in an action, which indicates uptrend is intact. But the appearance of a falling wedge classical pattern on lower time frame will only give a breakout once Nifty closes above 11,535. However, lower time frame trend line suggests breakout will be above 11,585 levels only.
Looking at open interest front, highest open interest (OI) in Put was seen around 11,400 strike followed by 11,500 strike with the difference of only 2 lakh whereas maximum OI in Call is around 11,800 levels, followed by 11,600. Option data indicates an immediate trading range between 11,300 and 11,600 levels.
11,600 is the key Nifty level and one should change stance to bullish once the same is broken on the upside. We suggest taking stock-specific long position with strict stop loss levels.
Here is a list of 5 stocks which could return 8-26% in short term:
Uflex: Buy | CMP: Rs 340.50 | Target: Rs 430 | Stop Loss: Rs 305 | Upside: 26%

The scrip has respected the uptrend line and a price has started running in the channel. Sustainability above 23.6 percent Fibonacci retracement of the fall from Rs 506 to Rs 245 levels also creating positive rhythm in the scrip.
