Here's what Mazhar Mohammad of Chartviewindia.in, recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:
This counter appears to have resumed its uptrend as it registered a break-away gap from its sideways consolidation of 12 sessions signalling the beginning of a fresh leg of upswing. Hence, as long as it sustains above its bullish gap zone of Rs 6,380-6,233, one can retain a bullish stance and look to buy the dip.
Interestingly on the weekly charts, this counter chalked out an ascending channel for last 18 weeks and based on that initial target can be in the zone of Rs 7,350–7,500. For a much bigger up move, it needs to register a breakout above the channel.
For the time being, fresh buying should be considered only on correction or consolidation towards Rs 6,400 levels where as investors who already hold should continue and look for a target placed in the zone of Rs 7,350–7,500 levels.
However, as technically stop loss looks far away that is below Rs 6,380, profit-booking in the next session can be a prudent option.
Long Black Day is visible in this counter as it appears to have reversed its trend from the intraday high of Rs 6,396 levels which has erased major part of the recent rally from the lows of Rs 4,725.
Hence, going forward, its inability to sustain above Rs 4,996 levels can eventually drag it down towards Rs 4,700 levels which, as of now, appears to be a critical support and a close below that can severely damage this counter with targets towards Rs 4,000 levels.
Therefore, considering the sharp reversal of last session, it looks prudent to avoid buying the dip for time being, whereas any rally should be used to exit the current holding.
This counter was consolidating in a range of Rs 9,589–8,600 for the last 71 trading sessions before registering a consolidation range breakout on the back of massive volumes. Interestingly, the range breakout target is placed around Rs 10,700 levels which should be presumed to have achieved at an intraday high of Rs 10,587 in the last trading session.
However, considering the fact that this counter witnessed a breakout on the back of news flows related to a stock split, the ideal strategy shall be to book profits around these levels as the current rally may not sustain as is evident from the price behaviour of different stocks during similar situations.
This counter witnessed a sharp rally from the lows of Rs 368 to a high of Rs 455 in just seven trading sessions on the incrementally higher volumes. However, weak market sentiment seems to have resulted in profit-booking from the intraday high of Rs 455 levels.
Hence, in the next trading session, it needs to sustain above Rs 416 as a close below that can puncture the bullish sentiment. As the momentum looks high in this counter, if the dip attracts a fresh buying and if it manages to get past Rs 455 levels, then the next target shall be Rs 489.
For the time being, traders should hold with a stop loss below Rs 416 and look for an initial target of Rs 455 and beyond that Rs 489 levels.
