The Nifty and Sensex have lost 1.50 per cent in the last two days. The Bank Nifty and Nifty Metal indices have fallen more than 3.5 per cent in just two trading sessions. These are indications of leaving long posts. FIIs have been consistently selling in the market and on Monday they sold more than Rs 2,000 crore. This was mainly due to a strong surge in the US bond market. Investors opted for 10-year Treasury bonds rather than equities, and this led to an unprecedented rise in the bond market.
On Tuesday, against the backdrop of weakness in the global market, our market continued to decline. Although technically the market closed above the 15600/52100 level, we believe the pain is not over and the Nifty/Sensex would move to the 15450/51600 or 15300/51000 levels in the next few days. On the upside, levels 15680/52350 and 15750/52500 would be major obstacles. India VX has grown the most since May 2021 at 15%. ACC and Asian Paints recorded the highest gains in the Nifty-50 index. The Bank Nifty broke support at the 34600 level, pushing the index to the 33900 level. Until the market crosses the 15750/52500 level and closes at the 15750/52500 level, there should be the strategy of reducing the weak long positions. Around large support, investors should be buyers in strong companies.
Stocks to buy
On the weekly scale, the stock faced multiple resistance around 3330 – 3380 levels due to strong supply area which has resulted in the transitory profit booking in the counter. Nevertheless post decline the stock took support at its important retracement zone, and incremental volume indicates reversal from the current levels.
BUY, CMP: Rs 554.85, TARGET: Rs 580, SL: Rs 540
On a broader time frame the counter has formed a Head and Shoulder chart pattern and post breakout it is trading near the neckline support moreover the stock is into a gradual up move with higher high and higher low chart formation on the daily chart that suggest upward movement in coming sessions.
BUY, CMP: Rs 17,856.1, TARGET: Rs 18,750, SL: Rs 17,500
The stock had been in a bullish trend forming higher lows on a weekly scale, however, for the last few sessions the counter was stuck in a narrow range and presently we witnessed a range breakout and closing above its short term moving averages hints that the stock has good potential for further upside.
BUY, CMP: Rs 3,905.4, TARGET: Rs 4,100, SL: Rs 3,820
After hitting the highs of 4200 the stock went into a corrective pattern, however, it has formed an Inverted Hammer candlestick pattern near its support area supported by the rise in volume activity which hints at strong reversal from the current levels in the near term.
