Here's what Rajesh Palviya of Axis Securities recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:
With current close, the stock has decisively broken out its past 6-8 weeks' consolidation range (Rs 197-170) on a closing basis. This consolidation was observed around its 100-day simple moving average (SMA - Rs 171) which remains a crucial support zone in the near term.
Currently the stock is well placed above its short and medium term important moving averages (20, 50 and 100-day SMA) which reconfirms bullish sentiments. The daily band Bollinger buy signifies increased bullish momentum.
On a week-on-week basis rising volumes are observed which signals increased participation in the rally. Investors should buy, hold and accumulate this stock with an expected upside of Rs 220-235, with downside support zone of Rs 178-170 levels.
With Friday's 5 percent gains, the stock has violated its "multiple resistance zone" of Rs 217 on a closing basis indicating strong comeback of bulls. Rising volumes at breakout zone signals increased participation. This buying was observed from its 20 and 50-Day SMA (Rs 209) which reconfirms bullish sentiments. The daily band Bollinger buy indicates increased volatility.
Investors should buy, hold and accumulate this stock with an expected upside of Rs 240-255, with downside support zone of Rs 210-207 levels.
The stock is in a strong up trend across all the time frames, forming a series of higher tops and bottoms. With current close, the stock has broken out its past three months' consolidation range (Rs 115-98) on a closing basis indicating resumption of earlier up trend.

On the daily chart, the stock has witnessed a "rounding bottom" breakout at Rs 227 levels along with huge volumes. With current close, the stock has also poised for "flag" - a continuation formation at Rs 254 levels. These all signal good potential of up move in the near term.
Past couple of weeks, huge rising volume signals participation in the rally. The weekly band Bollinger buy suggests increased bullish momentum.
Investors should buy, hold and accumulate this stock with an expected upside of Rs 265-285, with downside support zone of Rs 235 levels.
With current week's price drop of almost 22 percent ahead of company's record date for demerger undertaking. The stock has violated its one year "consolidation range" (Rs 258-195) on a closing basis indicating shift of trend towards down.
Hence the short to medium term trend changed to bearish. The stock is also quoting below 20, 50, 100 and 200-day SMA which reconfirms weakness. Any relief rally towards Rs 200-220 remains as an exit opportunity for short term traders.
