Here's what Shrikant Chouhan of Kotak Securities recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:
In this week so far, the stock rallied over 15 percent. After a short term correction, the stock took the support near Rs 350 and reversed. On daily and weekly charts, it has formed long bullish candle which supports further uptrend from the current levels.
For the swing traders now, Rs 395 could be the key level to watch. If stock manages to trade above the same then we could expect uptrend continuation wave up to Rs 420-430.
On the flip side, below Rs 395, traders may prefer to exit from trading long positions.
On last Thursday, the stock has rallied over 6 percent. After a muted opening it quickly surpassed the short term resistance of Rs 1,220. A promising bullish candle on daily charts and strong volume activity indicating further uptrend in the near future.
The texture of the pattern suggest positive momentum will continue in the near term if stock succeeds to trade above Rs 1,200 level.
For the trend following traders, Rs 1,220-1,200 would be the sacrosanct levels, and above which we can expect uptrend continuation wave up to Rs 1,260-1,285.
In this quarter so far, the stock rallied nearly 30 percent. After a promising short term uptrend rally, currently the stock is trading near to its all-time high level.
On daily and intraday charts, the stock has formed higher bottom series pattern which indicating continuation of uptrend in the near future.
For the positional traders now, Rs 820 could be the key level to watch. If stock manages to trade above the same then we can expect uptrend continuation wave up to Rs 940-965. However, below Rs 820, uptrend would be vulnerable.
