Nifty marches towards 17,000: Top 10 trading ideas by experts for September series

The only concern is the banking index, which has shown a relative underperformance. But this index is still in a consolidation phase, and there's a good probability of some buying interest emerging. This would further support the benchmark, says one analyst.

The market had a historic week as the BSE Sensex and the Nifty50 closed above the key psychological 56,000 and 16,700 levels for the first time on August 27, breaking out from the consolidation seen in the past several sessions, led by positive global cues.

Both the indices rallied 1.5 percent each, while the broader markets also got its mojo back on the back of buying interest in several key stocks. The BSE Midcap and Smallcap indices registered 2.5 percent and 2 percent, respectively.

In fact, it was a good start to the September series on Friday, indicating the continuity in the run-up amidst the volatility, in the coming weeks. Experts feel if the banking index gains strength after the current consolidation,  the Nifty50 could easily surpass the 17,000-mark in the September series itself.

‘The index continues to be in an uptrend and one should continue to trade with a positive bias and avoid taking any contra trades until any reversal is seen," said Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst, Technical and Derivatives, Angel Broking.

“The only concern we have been highlighting is the banking index, which has shown a relative underperformance for so long. But this index is still in a consolidation phase and has not breached its important supports. Hence, there's a good probability of some buying interest emerging in this sector, which would then lead to further support to the benchmark," he said.


He feels the immediate supports for Nifty are placed around 16,600 and 16,500 while the levels to watch on the upside will be 16,800, and then the 17,000-mark.

"Also, how the global markets shape up in the near term due to events can have an impact on our markets," he said. He advised that one should keep track of the global developments and also book timely profits in trading positions.

Cipla: Buy | CMP: Rs 923.90 | Stop-Loss: Rs 902 | Target: Rs 960 | Return: 3.9 percent

Some stocks from the pharmaceutical space have undergone a corrective phase in the last couple of months. This stock, too, has corrected from its recent highs. However, the medium chart indicates that the trend still continues to be up, and, hence, this just seems to be a corrective phase within an uptrend.

The price structure has turned positive and the RSI oscillator has given a positive crossover and it is indicating a positive momentum. Hence, we expect the stock to rebound higher in the near term. We recommend buying the stock at the current market price for a short-term target of Rs 960. The stop-loss can be placed at Rs 902.
