Nifty’s trend non-directional, BFSI stocks witness profit-booking; Hindalco, TVS Motors among stocks to buy



By Shrikant Chouhan

On last Tuesday, the benchmark indices closed higher. Among sectors, buying was seen in auto, FMCG and healthcare stocks whereas banking and financial stocks witnessed intraday profit booking at higher levels. Technically, after an early morning intraday rally, the index took the resistance near 19,500 and reversed, yet once again.

In addition, on intraday charts the index has formed double top formation which indicates temporary weakness. We are of the view that the short-term texture of the market is non-directional, hence level-based trading would be the ideal strategy for traders.  For the intraday traders now, 19,500 would be the crucial breakout level. Above which, the market could move up till 19,600-19,625. On the other hand below, 19,380 the selling pressure is likely to accelerate. Below the same, the index could retest the level of 19,300-19,250.


BUY | CMP: Rs 424.3 | TARGET: Rs 445 |  SL: Rs 415

For the past few weeks, Hindalco has been into a range bound mode with a higher low series formation. Meanwhile, on the daily scale, it has formed an ascending triangle chart pattern. The structure indicates breakout from the current levels and the beginning of a new up move in the counter.

TVS Motors

BUY | CMP: Rs 1346.3 | TARGET: Rs 1410 |  SL: Rs 1320

On the daily charts, TVS motors has given a breakout of the Symmetrical triangle chart pattern along with decent volume activity. The structure suggests that TVS motors has enough potential for further upside from the current levels.

Grasim Industries

BUY | CMP: Rs 1766.6 | TARGET: Rs 1860 | SL: Rs 1730

After hitting the recent highs of around 1800, Grasim witnessed selloff and dropped to the lower side. However, it has found support near the important retracement zone. As a result, the bullish trend is very likely to continue for further up move in the near term.

Larsen & Toubro

BUY | CMP: Rs 2478.35 | TARGET: Rs 2600 | SL: Rs 2430

After the robust rally from the lower levels, L&T took a breather for a few sessions with a gradual down move. However, the formation of a bullish Marubozu candlestick pattern with a good volume suggests a likely strong up move in the counter in the coming horizon.
