The Nifty went past 12,000 in 2019 to make a record high near 12,300. There could be some consolidation after the budget which should be used to accumulate quality stocks.
“We feel the Nifty might correct to even 12,000/11,900, however, it would be an opportunity to buy index stocks with a positional view. Based on monthly and quarterly charts, the Nifty is preparing for hitting the level of minimum 13,000 and maximum 14,400 in the next 12 to 18 months based on Gann angles,” said Shrikant S Chouhan, Senior Vice-President (Equity Technical Research) at Kotak Securities.
“The reason behind such a big target is that the market is moving higher but the pace of it is gradual. Even though the Nifty is trading at all-time highs and the euphoric trend is still missing and till the participants are not becoming greedy investors, markets are not going to come down drastically.”
