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 support near Rs 1,580 and reversed. After reversal, in this month so far, it rallied nearly 10 percent. It also formed a long bullish candle on daily and weekly charts which is largely positive.Technically, promising positive momentum is indicating further upside from the current levels. For the trend-following traders, Rs 1,900 would act as a trend decider level, above which it could move up to 200 day SMA (simple moving average) Rs 2,020-2,050. On the flip side, below Rs 1,900, traders may prefer to exit from trading long positions.
On Thursday, the stock rallied nearly 9 percent. It opened with gap up and quickly surpassed short term resistance of Rs 135 with strong volume activity. Despite weak market conditions, Redington (India) maintained its strong momentum throughout the day.
In the short term time frame, the stock has formed a strong price volume breakout pattern. The texture of the pattern suggests breakout action will continue in the near term if the stock succeeds to trade above Rs 134 level.
For breakout traders, Rs 134 would be the sacrosanct level, and trading above the same we can expect uptrend continuation wave up to Rs 150-155.
In this quarter so far, the stock has rallied over 20 percent. On Thursday, the stock made a fresh all-time high of Rs 1,400. On daily and intraday charts, the stock is holding higher bottom series pattern indicating continuation of uptrend in the near future.
For the trend-following traders, Rs 1,300 could be the key level to watch and if the stock manages to trade above the same then we could expect an uptrend continuation wave up to Rs 1,500-1,570.
On the flip side, below Rs 1,300, traders may prefer to exit from trading long positions.
