Here's what Shrikant Chouhan of Kotak Securities recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:
After a medium-term price correction, the stock took support near Rs 600 and reversed quickly. Post sharp reversal formation, it is comfortably trading above 50 and 200-day simple moving average (SMA), which is broadly positive.
On daily and weekly charts, the stock formed a promising double bottom, which supports further uptrend from current levels.
We are of the view that as long as it trades above Rs 625, the uptrend formation will persist. Above the same, it can rally up to Rs 680-710.
The stock has rallied over 12 percent on February 3. After a strong opening, the stock quickly surpassed 61 resistance mark and post-range breakout, it intensified the positive momentum throughout the day.
On the short-term timeframe, the stock has formed a strong price volume breakout pattern. The texture of the pattern suggests breakout action will continue in the near term if the stock succeeds to trade above 61 level.
For the breakout traders, 61 would be the key level to watch out, above it, the stock could move up to Rs 70-75.
After a sharp decline, the stock took support near 200-day SMA. Post the reversal formation, the stock registered a sharp pullback rally. In the last two days, it rallied over 18 percent. However, on the daily and the weekly charts, the stock is still holding lower top formation, which is broadly negative for the Blue Star.
We are of the view that the stock is witnessing non-directional activity, perhaps traders are waiting for either side breakout confirmation.
For the bulls, now Rs 1,050 would be the important breakout level to watch. And if, the stock manages to close above the same, we can expect quick uptrend rally towards Rs 1,100-1,150. On the flip side, trading below Rs 950 may increase further weakness up to Rs 925-890.
