The Indian equity market witnessed a sharp profit-booking in Tuesday's trading session after a one-way vertical rally. The weakness can be attributed to selling in the global markets after the US 10-year bond yield moved above the 1.80 mark during the day.
FIIs have been net sellers for the last four trading sessions, while a sharp selling in the last hour of trade indicates that we may have another day of selling by FIIs.
Technically, 18,300-18,350 is a minor resistance zone where the Nifty witnessed a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern that may lead to further weakness. Tuesday's low of 18,085 is at 9-DMA (daily moving average); below this, 17,950-17,800 will be the next important support level, while 17,650 is critical support at any correction, however, every correction is a good buying opportunity.
For the Bank Nifty, 38,800-39,100 is an important resistance zone and 38,850 is a 61.8 percent retracement of the previous fall where it witnessed sharp profit-booking in late trade. On the downside, 38,000 is an immediate and psychological support level, while 37,500-37,000 will be the next major support levels. On the upside, if it manages to take out the 39,100 level, then we can expect a rally towards the 40,000 level.
Here are three buy calls for next 2-3 weeks:
Shriram Properties: Buy | LTP: Rs 103.35 | Stop-Loss: Rs 96 | Target: Rs 121 | Return: 17 percent
The counter manages to cross the high made on the IPO listing day and sees all-time closing high that's considered as a positive for any counter.

RSI (relative strength index) manages to cross the hurdle of 60 that may lead to further thrust in this counter.

On the upside, Rs 450 is an immediate horizontal resistance line while Rs 475-480 is the next target area. MACD (moving average convergence divergence) and ADX (average directional index) are positively poised and RSI is in overbought territory however it may remain in overbought territory for some more time.
