Here's what Jigar S Patel of Anand Rathi Shares & Stock Brokers recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:
For the last 5 months, Castrol India has been making higher highs and higher lows on a weekly scale which indicates that counter is in an uptrend. But one thing which needs attention is that it is approaching its historical resistance of Rs 140-142.
On indicator front, 21-day ROC (rate of change) needs some cooling as it is overstretched and placed at 33 levels.
One can book partial profit at current levels. As of now wait and watch in Castrol India.
Since the last 2 trading sessions, the said counter has given a whopping 44 percent return. Also, slope of the rally is 90 degrees approximately, which is difficult to sustain in the coming days.
On the indicator front, daily MACD (moving average convergence and divergence) is displaying a negative divergence (refer to the chart). One can book partial profit at current levels. Fresh longs are not recommended at current market price.
Recently the said counter has broken its historical resistance of Rs 70 and closed well above it. For the next two months, Rs 70 - 100 would the range for the Bank of India.
Even massive volume was seen from levels that are indications of further strength in the counter.
From an indicator perspective weekly, MACD is hinting towards more upside for Bank of India.
One can buy in a small tranche at current levels and another around Rs 75 (if tested gain). The upside is expected till Rs 95, with credible support at around Rs 70.
