The benchmark indices closed the week ended June 25 with gains of over 1 percent each but the big action was in the small and midcap space that outperformed the Sensex and the Nifty on a weekly basis.

The Nifty, which closed a shade below 15,900, is on track to hit 16,000 in the July series but experts advise caution as most bounces towards 16,000 have faced strong selling pressure.

The big resistance levels to watch out for will be in the 16,000-16,100 range, while on the downside, support is placed at 15,450-15,500 levels, say experts.

Unlike June, which is historically a month of consolidation and deceleration, July has a reputation for high action and expanded moves.

“The seasonality factor score indicates an average growth rate around +3.57 percent when we look at the last five years, which saw a negative return of 5.69 percent in 2019, while the rest of the years saw an uptick within the range of 5-7.5 percent,” Sacchitanand Uttekar, DVP–Technical (Equity), Tradebulls Securities, said.

“Technically, the index is clinging to its ongoing pitchfork indicator range with 16,040 being the breakeven zone to unlock upward momentum towards 16,530, while on the downside, the recent bullish hammer swing low around 15,450 holds the key for any bearish uncertain moves,” he said.

Rajesh Palviya, VP-Technical & Derivative Research, Axis Securities, said the overall range for the July series is at 16,000-16,500 on the upside and 15,500–15,300 on the downside, with intermediate levels of 16,200 and 15,200, respectively.

Here are 10 trading ideas from experts for the next three-four weeks:

Expert: Sacchitanand Uttekar, DVP – Technical (Equity), Tradebulls Securities

SBI: Buy up to Rs 425| LTP: Rs 428| Stop Loss: Rs 410| Target: Rs 465| Upside 8%

SBI witnessed a breakout from a ‘V’ price pattern formation in May around 405 levels. After the initial up move, the stock saw a pullback towards its breakout zone.

The recent development of a bullish engulfing formation on the weekly scale is a reconfirmation of an elevated base around 400.

The level also coincides with its five-week exponential moving average (EMA) level, while its daily RSI has seen a strong rebound from its 50 zones and a crossover of its trigger line above 60, which complements the ongoing bullish move.

Hero MotoCorp: Buy up to Rs 2920| LTP: Rs 2939| Stop Loss: Rs 2850| Target: Rs 3240| Upside 10%

‘Piercing line’ formation on its daily scale around its 200-week EMA zone marked the termination of its ongoing bearish move. With its weekly RSI now placed around 49 zone, we can expect a quick upsurge once it crosses 50 zone.

The corresponding level to track during the week would be around 2,980, its 200-day EMA, above which we expect the impending up move to witness acceleration. Fresh longs could be added with a weekly closing stop below 2,850.

L&T: Buy up to Rs 1520| LTP: Rs 1522| Stop Loss: Rs 1470| Target: Rs 1660| Upside 9%

Positive sector outlook.  The ‘morning star’ formation on the daily scale around its trend line support reaffirms the trend strength.

A breakout above the neckline level of 1,580 will activate the inverse head and shoulder formation, which is at its maturing stage since February 21.

Canara Bank: Buy up to Rs 150| LTP: Rs 153.55| Stop Loss: Rs 145| Target: Rs 170| Upside 11%

Positive sector outlook. A piercing line formation has occurred near its 20-week EMA support zone.

Daily RSI crossover around 51 with its daily volumes crossing its 5-day average is a good sign of incremental strength. Trading longs could be deployed for an immediate up move towards 170.

Cummins India | LTP: Rs 858.80 | Target price: Rs 906 | Stop loss: Rs 823 | Upside: 5.5%

The stock has been consolidating with small corrections in between since the beginning of April. Recently, the declining trend seems to have been arrested around Rs 750 which coincided with the 89-EMA on the daily chart.

The stock prices rebounded well from this important support zone and now with a smart upmove on June 25, we can see the configuration of a bullish cup and handle on the daily timeframe.

Since it’s backed by more than average daily volumes, we recommend going long for a short-term target of Rs 906.

SBI Life Insurance Company | LTP: Rs 1,007.05 | Target price: Rs 1,058 | Stop loss: Rs 979 | Upside: 5%

Life insurance companies have been doing well for the last few months. They have been holding their ground firmly during the in-between corrective phases the broader market has been experiencing.

This stock seems to have cemented its position around Rs 970–Rs 950, which is the earlier breakout point.

Last week, its peer counters had a good move but it remained quiet. Now looking at the price action of June 25, we expect this stock to catch up with peers.
