Here's what Shrikant Chouhan of Kotak Securities recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:
On the daily scale, the stock is trading into a rising channel chart formation making the higher top and higher bottom constantly. As a result, all major technical trend indicators such as MACD (moving average convergence divergence) and ADX (average directional index) are strong and steady.
Therefore, upward movement from the current level is very likely to continue in the coming horizon. For positional traders, Rs 378 would be the trend decider level.
Trading above the same uptrend formation would continue till Rs 420. However, if it closes below Rs 378 traders may prefer to exit from trading long positions.
After the short-term correction in the counter from the higher levels, the downward momentum has taken a pause. On the daily charts, the counter has formed a rounding bottom chart formation along with decent volume activity and it has reversed its trend from its support zone.
The formation suggests a revival of the uptrend from the current levels for further bullish movement. For the traders, Rs 300 would be the key support level to watch out. Above which the uptrend structure should continue until Rs 335.
Post remarkable up move of the last few months, the stock was seen consolidating in a range and currently, it has rebounded from the lower boundary of the range.
The structure suggests reversal of trend and bullish strength for a fresh up move from the current levels. Unless it is trading below Rs 1,195 levels, positional traders can retain an optimistic stance and look for a target of Rs 1,330.
