Expert: Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist–Technical Research & Trading Advisory,


Tata Steel

This counter seems to be coming out of a multi-year underpeformance with a decisive breakout, from its multi-year trading range of 747– 188 levels between the years 2010 and 2020.

However, on the lower end of the trading range, it registered slightly higher bottoms each time it bottomed out, which depicted an ascending triangle on long-term charts.

Last week this counter decisively registered a breakout on massive volumes from the said trading range and looks to be heading towards its lifetime highs present around 901 registered in 2008.

Once it manages to conquer 901, then a bigger target placed towards 1,200, based on the triangular breakout, can’t be ruled out.

For long-term investors, any correction in the zone of 750–700 can be a great opportunity to accumulate for a bigger target of 1,200, whereas positional traders with a three-months kind of time horizon should hold for an initial target of 870–901 by placing a stop below 770 on a closing basis.

Blue Dart

The last two days' price action on relatively higher volumes is hinting that bottom is in place at the recent low of 4,825 levels. However, it is fast approaching its near-term resistance of 5,740.

If it registers a sustainable close above 5,740, then a bigger target towards 6,638 can be expected.

For the time, short-term traders can consider booking profits around 5,740, whereas investors can hold for the bigger target of 6,600 by placing a stop below 5,239 on a closing basis.

JSW Steel

Metals seem to be in a bull market of their own after a long time and the relative strength of this counter is far better than its peers, as this counter doesn’t hesitate from hitting new life highs consistently.

In the last session, this counter seems to have resumed its up move with life highs again after a couple of listless sessions. Moreover, in the last 30-weeks, it seems to be moving in an ascending channel whose upper boundary is placed around 520 levels.

Hence, one can continue to hold and even consider fresh buying with a stop below 450 levels on a closing basis and look for a bigger target of 497 levels.
