Here's what Mazhar Mohammad of Chartviewindia.in recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:
Despite hitting life-time highs, the medium-term trend of this counter seems to be sideways in a broader range of Rs 520 to Rs 400. In the last four months, with its price behaviour, it carved out a well-defined channel in which the upper bound acted as a supply point where as lower boundary witnessed buying interest.
In the last session, it gave up all the intraday gains to close around the lowest point of the session. Hence, it may witness more selling pressure in the next session, if it trades below Rs 522 levels. Therefore, we don't advise fresh longs unless it closes above Rs 555 levels. On such a close, initially Rs 590 can be expected.
This counter seems to have witnessed some critical breakdowns on weekly charts as in the current week it erased a four-week-old pull-back attempt from the lows of Rs 4,643 to a high of Rs 5,148 in the current week in which only two sessions passed.
This faster retracement on the downside is hinting at more selling pressure with initial targets of Rs 4,351 levels and breach of this can drag it down further towards Rs 3,955 levels.
For the time being, fresh long side bets should be avoided, whereas short-term traders who already invested in this counter, should exist either on pull back towards Rs 5,000 levels or triggering a stop-loss below Rs 4,500 levels.
Last two trading sessions of sharp up-move on the back of massive volumes may be hinting at a breakout above its 94-day-old corrective and consolidation phase.
Volumes with sharp price appreciation may be pointing at a trend reversal with a sustainable up-move. Moreover, as this counter is trading close to its life highs of Rs 202, beyond that a higher target of Rs 219 can't be ruled out.
Hence, it remains a 'buy on dip' opportunity but with a stop-loss below Rs 180 on closing basis for a target of Rs 219.
This counter appears to be in a multi-week consolidation zone of Rs 58 - 37 for the last 10 months. However, last four weeks of price structure is in extremely narrow ranges and seems have formed a decent base around Rs 39.
This was followed by sharp price rise on the back of massive volumes. Hence, positional traders are advised to adopt a two pronged strategy of buying now and add on dips in the zone of Rs 42 – 40 levels and look for an initial target of Rs 57. Stop-loss suggested for the trade is a close below Rs 39.
