Nifty AUTO, METALS and INFRA indices helped the market to close higher. From the basket of defensive sectors, we saw solid gains for the IT index. FMCG and PSU Banks marginally closed in the negative territory. Yesterday, the market did well mainly due to exceptional strength in the global markets and weakness in the dollar index. Commodities have again started recovering from lows and have boosted the sentiment of the market. The Nifty closed above the level of 15100 and the Sensex ended at 51348 levels.
The market has established one more bullish candlestick formation on a daily chart, however, it has left an exhaustion gap that would invite short term weakness if the Nifty/Sensex breaks below the level of 15040/51140. On the higher side, hurdles would be at 15190/51500 and at 15270/51750 levels. The strategy should be to take profit on long positions between 15150 and 15250 (51500/51750 for the Sensex). Expect a short-term weakness below the level of 15040/51140 levels. Supports would be at 15040/51140 and at 14850/50500 levels.”
Technical Picks are:-
Infosys: BUY, CMP 1303.55, TARGET 1370, SL 1275
Post profit taking from all-time highs of 1392 stock was into consolidation and it has given a breakout from triangle formation with a strong bullish candle on the daily chart with incremental volume activity.
Jindal Steel and Power: BUY, CMP 307.15, TARGET 320, SL 300
Fresh breakout with higher high and higher low formation and closing above 50 day SMA on the daily chart indicates upward momentum to persist in the short term.
Tata Motors: BUY, CMP 335.95, TARGET 353, SL 328
The stock had been a consistent outperformer in its space from the last few weeks and after the breather of the last three trading sessions it strongly reversed its up move by forming a bullish continuation chart pattern on the daily chart.
Asian Paints: BUY, CMP 2416.85, TARGET 2540, SL 2365
Post correction stock is in a range bound movement and it has formed a good base around the 2370 zone. Hence reversal from its double bottom chart formation is visible along with decent volume activity on the daily chart.
Titan Company: BUY, CMP 1541.7, TARGET 1620, SL 1510
A breakout from inverse head and shoulder chart formation near 50 day SMA with incremental volume activity is evident on the daily chart.
