We have collated views of experts on what investors should do when the market resumes trading on January 21:
Expert: Ruchit Jain, Senior Analyst - Technical and Derivatives, Angel Broking Ltd
Bajaj Auto - Hold
The Nifty Auto index has been forming a ‘Higher Top Higher Bottom’ structure and is in an uptrend for the last few months. The two-wheeler space has witnessed a good buying interest and Bajaj Auto has seen good momentum over the last few months.
On the daily charts, the intermediate corrections have been bought and as the stock approaches its 20-Days EMA, we again see a resumption of the uptrend.
Hence, till this structure is intact, traders should continue to ride the trend. The near-term support for the stock is placed around Rs 3500 while the probable targets are seen around Rs 3820 and Rs 4000.
Tata Motors - Hold
This stock has caught everyone’s attention due to its sharp run-up in the last few weeks. The recent price up move has been backed by increasing volumes which is a good sign.
The RSI oscillator on the short term charts is in an overbought zone, but there are no signs of any weakness in prices. Hence, traders should continue to hold the stock and continue to ride this trend.
In such trending times, the corrections are usually short-lived. Hence, any corrections would be a buying opportunity. The immediate supports for the stock are now placed around Rs 263 and Rs 250 and the stock could approach Rs 290-295 in the short term.
The stock is trading at its all-time high and since there are no signs of any reversal, the trend is likely to continue. Hence, traders should continue to hold the stock with a stop loss now placed below its support of Rs 1650.
