Benchmark Index Nifty formed an ascending triangle pattern breakout on the daily time frame on April 29.
After a short consolidation, it has given a breakout and looks geared for its next leg of the up move.
The 21-day exponential moving average acted like a sheet anchor for the index as Nifty didn't breach the moving average and continued to close above it.
Last week's bearish Dark Cloud Cover candlestick pattern was neglected by a sharp positive surge in the benchmark index.
We believe 9,400 will act as support and Nifty is likely to march towards 9,800 in the coming trading session. The beach of 9,400 will drag Nifty to 9,200 – 9,000 levels.
Bank Nifty has formed a smaller degree Rounding Bottom Pattern on the daily charts. The state-run banks are yet to particulate in the current rally of banking index.
The majority of state-run banks are trading at an extremely oversold zone and a sudden positive spike in these banks cannot be ruled out in the coming trading sessions.
Bank Nifty is likely to take the support of its 21-day exponential moving average which is placed around 20,400 level on the daily chart.
Bank Nifty, on the daily chart, seems to have completed its intermediate third wave at 16,116 and currently, we are on the fourth wave which is in a zigzag formation.
Due to recent up move, the key technical indicators and oscillators have turned slightly in the favour of bulls on the weekly interval, which is a positive sign for the index.
Here are three stock recommendations for the next 3-4 weeks:
Bank of Baroda (BoB) | Buy | LTP: Rs 47.90 | Target price: Rs 55 | Stop loss: Rs 44.50 | Upside: 15%
Shares of Bank of Baroda have formed a bullish ABCD Harmonic pattern on the daily time frame and is currently trading near its potential reversal zone (PRZ) level.
The counter seems to have taken a lot of beating in an ongoing bear market. Momentum Oscillator RSI (14) is currently reading below 25 levels on weekly and daily intervals.
Bullish Harmonic pattern and oversold reading in oscillator indicate sharp oversold rally in the counter in the coming days.
Traders can accumulate the stock in the range of Rs 47.80 – 48.40.
Deepak Nitrite | Buy | LTP: Rs 510 | Target price: Rs 570 | Stop loss: Rs 470 | Upside: 12%
