Here's what Karan Pai of GEPL Capital, recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:

Close

Laurus Labs

Laurus Labs is placed below the 200-Day SMA (simple moving average) (Rs 553) since October 28, 2021. On the shorter time frame, the prices seem to have found near the Rs 450 mark and formed a bullish confirmation with the RSI (relative strength index).

The prices seem to be heading higher towards the 200-Day SMA (Rs 553), this up move was backed by volume build-up, indicating participation in the up move.

Going ahead, we expect the prices to move higher towards the Rs 553 mark immediately, if the prices manage to break above this level, we might see the prices move higher towards Rs 660.

Investors who hold the stock can continue to hold on to their position with a strict stop loss at Rs 450 on daily closing basis and expect the prices to move higher towards Rs 660 once the hurdle of Rs 553 is crossed.

Glenmark Pharma

Glenmark on the medium-term charts can be seen hovering around the 200-week SMA (Rs 501) since August 2021. On a short time frame, we can be seen moving placed below the 200-Day SMA (Rs 552) which has been acting as resistance for quite some time. The prices seem to be attempting to move higher towards the 200-Day SMA.

On the indicator front, the RSI plotted on the weekly charts has formed a bullish crossover and attempting to move above the 50 mark, indicating increasing bullish momentum in prices.

Short-term traders holding this stock can use the up move towards the 200-Day SMA (Rs 552) to book their profit and exit from the position.

Long-term investors can hold on to their position with a stop loss of Rs 455 on daily closing basis as we expect good momentum build-up as the prices breach above the Rs 552 mark post which we might see the prices move higher towards the Rs 600-645.

On December 27, the prices moved higher and not only broke but also managed to end the session above the 200-day SMA (Rs 99.85). This up move was backed by good volume build-up, indicating participation in the up move.

Vakrangee

Vakrangee, from a medium-term perspective, has been consolidating between Rs 71 and Rs 16 since May 2018. On the daily time frame, the stock moved above the 200-day SMA (Rs 43) on December 27, 2021. This up move was backed by good volume build-up, indicating participation in the up move.

On the indicator front the RSI plotted on the weekly time frame can be seen moving higher towards the overbought level after forming a bullish hinge near Rs 40, indicating increasing bullish momentum in prices.

We would advise the investors to use this up move towards Rs 50 and Rs 71 to exit from this position.
