Nifty50 fell sharply on Monday morning amid weak Asian markets, large FII selling, and increased restrictions in many states. However, from the intraday low, the Nifty50 recovered more than two hundred points to end the day with the gains of three points at 14,634 levels
Nifty50 closed above its 50-day EMA which is placed at 14,630 levels. It has also found support near 61.8% retracement of the entire upswing seen from 14,151 to 15,044.
Therefore, we believe that even though the Nifty fell sharply on Friday and Monday morning, it has not violated important support levels on a closing basis.
In the derivative segment, we have seen Puts being written at 14400-14500 levels, and the derivative data also indicates that 14,400-14,500 levels are likely to act as strong support going forward.
We believe that Nifty50 is near the strong support range of 14,400-14,600 level and any correction from hereon should be utilized to accumulate long positions with the stop loss of 14,400 levels.
On the higher side, Nifty50 is likely to find immediate resistance at 14855 and 15044 levels. We continue to believe that sectors that are looking strongest on medium to long-term charts and are expected to outperform in the coming weeks are Chemical, Pharma, and Metals.
The Nifty Smallcap-100 has broken out on the daily chart on Monday to close at a 3-Year high. The Nifty Midcaps and Small-cap Indices have outperformed during the CY21 by rising by 16% and 22% respectively as against a 4.7% rise in the Nifty.
We expect their outperformance to continue for the coming weeks also. Therefore, the focus of the traders should be on Midcaps/Small caps rather than benchmark Indices.
Here are three buy recommendations from the Midcap/Smallcap segment for the next 3-4 weeks:
NOCIL: Buy | LTP: Rs 194 | Target: Rs 234 | Stop-Loss: Rs 182 | Upside 20%
