Here's what Ruchit Jain of recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:

Ashok Leyland

Post some consolidation, the prices had given a breakout from a falling trendline resistance during last week. The breakout was supported by good volumes and we have also seen a good follow up move in last couple of sessions. Thus, the trend for the stock remains positive as the ‘Higher Top Higher Bottom’ structure remains intact and the ‘RSI’ (relative strength index) oscillator is also indicating a positive momentum.

Traders with existing positions should hold and continue to ride the trend while and intermediate dips should be used as buying opportunities.

The immediate supports for the stock are placed around Rs 132 and Rs 127 while the stock has potential to rally towards Rs 152-153 in short to medium term.


Shilpa Medicare

The stock witnessed a gap up opening which was followed by huge volumes in Tuesday's session. However, if we look at the recent chart structure, the '200 EMA' (exponential moving average) was acting as a support when the stock was in an uptrend and now when that support has been breached, the same average is acting as a resistance.

Hence, for any sustained rally, prices need to cross the resistance zone of Rs 485-500. Fresh buying should be done only on a breakout above the mentioned resistance above which, the stock could then see momentum towards Rs 540.

On the flipside, the immediate support for the stock is placed around Rs 420 which could be used as a reference for stop-loss on existing positions.


Tanla Platforms

Along with the broader markets, this stock has corrected from its swing highs of Rs 2,096 seen at the start of this calendar year. The prices are trading in a falling channel and from the support end of the channel, we are witnessing some pullback move. The ‘RSI Smoothened’ oscillator is in oversold zone and hence we could see some more pullback in the near term.

However, prices need to give a breakout above the resistance end for any sustained momentum. The immediate support for the stock is placed around Rs 1,140 which could be seen as a stop-loss level for existing long positions. The resistances in the stock are seen around Rs 1,400 followed by Rs 1,520.


Coromandel International

The stock has been forming a ‘Higher Top Higher Bottom’ structure and is thus in an uptrend. The recent upmove has also been backed by rising volumes and the ‘RSI’ oscillator is also indicating a positive momentum.

Hence, traders should continue to ride the trend with a trailing stop-loss method and also look to add positions on any corrective declines.

The immediate supports for the stock are placed around Rs 930 and Rs 890 whereas the stock could continue its upmove towards Rs 1,027 in the near term.
