Here's what Ruchit Jain of 5paisa.com, recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:
We saw a sharp run-up in the stock in March. After consolidation in April, it resumed the positive momentum in Tuesday's session, supported by high volumes.
Also, the volumes in the previous up-moves were good while that in consolidation phase were low. Traders with exiting long positions can continue to hold with a stop-loss placed below the swing low of Rs 750, but fresh buying is not recommended here as the risk reward ratio is not favourable.
The immediate supports for the stock are placed around Rs 777 and Rs 752 while resistances are seen around Rs 870 and Rs 900.
The stock has been trading in a Rising Channel and prices have taken a support near the support end of the channel. This week's low of Rs 1,673 could thus be a make or break level for the stock in the near term.
Traders with exiting positions can continue to hold the stock with a stop-loss placed below Rs 1,673. On the flipside, the immediate resistances are seen around Rs 1,855 and Rs 1,950.
The stock is in a consolidation phase as the prices have been oscillating within a broad channel. Until the stock surpasses above the resistance of the channel, one should avoid bottom fishing here and existing longs, too, can be lightened on pullback move towards the resistance zone.
The immediate resistance for the stock is seen in the range of Rs 2,500-2,560 while supports are placed at Rs 2,300 and Rs 2,160.
