Here's what Shrikant Chouhan of Kotak Securities recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:
After a short term correction, the stock took the support near Rs 2,500 level and reversed sharply. In this week so far, the stock rallied over 6 percent and formed long bullish candle on daily and weekly charts, which is broadly positive.
We are of the view that, as long as the stock is trading above 50 days SMA (simple moving average) or Rs 2,610, the uptrend texture is likely to continue.
Above which, the stock could move up to Rs 2,750. Further upside may also continue which could lift the stock up to Rs 2,800. However, below Rs 2,610 uptrend would be vulnerable.
After a short term correction, the stock has formed double bottom formation near Rs 1,100. On last Thursday, the stock bounced back sharply, rallied over 5 percent.
On daily charts the stock has formed long bullish candle and currently it is comfortably trading above 20 days SMA (simple moving average) level of Rs 1,127.Unless it is trading below Rs 1,105, positional traders retain an optimistic stance and look for a target Rs 1,195-Rs 1,225 fresh buying can be considered now and on dips, if any between Rs 1,155 and Rs 1,125 levels with a stop-loss below Rs 1,105.
The stock has rallied nearly 10 percent on September 22. On last Thursday, it quickly cleared the short term resistance of Rs 160 with a strong volume activity and after a promising intraday rally, it succeeded to close above the same.
Despite weak market conditions the stock maintained its strong momentum throughout the day. On the short term time frame, the stock has formed strong price volume breakout pattern.
The texture of the pattern suggest breakout action will continue in the near term if stock succeeds to trade above Rs 158 level.For the swing traders, Rs 158 would be the sacrosanct level, trading above the same we can expect uptrend continuation wave up to Rs 180-185.
