Top 10 trading ideas for next 3-4 weeks as market moves towards 17,000

view original post

The market had a strong week ended July 22, closing at more than two-and-a-half-month high with over 4 percent gains on the back of positive global trend, renewed buying interest at the FII desk, and easing commodity prices, including oil. After breaking out at the 16,000 levels, the Nifty50 did not look back, and crossed the 200-day exponential moving average of 16,521 in the middle of week, which also sustained in the later part of last week.

The index closed at 16,719.5 on Friday, the highest closing level since May 2, and has been making higher high higher low formation from the last five weeks on the daily charts, with bullish candlestick pattern formation on the daily as well weekly charts, while on the monthly charts, there was Bullish Engulfing kind of pattern formation.

The index has taken a support around its 30-31 percent Fibonacci Retracement level of up-move (from Covid lows to all-time high), which was placed at Rs 15,183 and since then it has seen upward move, barring intermittent correction.

Oscillators on the higher time frames indicated the sentiments are positive, but the lower timeframes (one hour and below) indicated negative sentiments which can be a sign of overbought and hence some setback can’t be ruled out, especially after a 4 percent run-up last week and 10 percent rally from June lows, experts said.

On the levels, the next resistance for the index may be at 16,794, (the previous swing high point on June 3), followed by 16,946 and then 17,050 (200 days SMA), while the breakaway gap of 16,360-16,490 created during the last week can be act as a crucial support area, experts said.

“Going ahead, any decline towards this support is likely to get bought into. On the higher side, the recent swing high of 16,793 is very much within a touching distance now and soon we would see the benchmark index surpassing this as well. Slowly but steadily, we would see it eyeing its ‘200-SMA’ (simple moving average) zone of 16,900 – 17,050 which would certainly be a sigh of relief for market participants,” Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives at Angel One said.

He further said that although the undertone remains bullish, it’s important to understand that the low hanging fruit is already gone and hence, it’s advisable not to become too complacent; rather better to take one step at a time for a while.

A lot of thematic moves started doing well last week and hence, the pragmatic approach would be to focus on such potential movers which are likely to provide better trading opportunities, the market expert advised.

Here are top 10 trading ideas by experts for the next three-four weeks. Returns are based on the July 22 closing prices:

JK Cement: Buy | LTP: Rs 2,332.5 | Stop-Loss: Rs 2,135 | Target: Rs 2,720 | Return: 17 percent

After a higher level of reversal, again the stock tested its 50-month EMA and witnessed a smart recovery. In the past, the stock resumed its up-move after testing that moving average.

We believe the history will repeat itself, as the key technical indicators reversed from the oversold zone on medium-term timeframe chart and positively poised.

This could lead the stock towards its point of polarization, which is placed at around Rs 2,720.

Mphasis: Buy | LTP: Rs 2,276.45 | Stop-Loss: Rs 2,065 | Target: Rs 2,700 | Return: 19 percent

The key technical indicators are in favour of the bulls on medium-term as well as short-term timeframe charts. On the higher side, the stock may face hurdle around Rs 2,380.

A stable move above that hurdle will take the stock towards Rs 2,475-2,550-2,700 in the short-term. In case of any decline, the stock will find support around its prior swing low, which is placed at around Rs 2,065.

Kotak Mahindra Bank: Buy | LTP: Rs 1,827.1 | Stop-Loss: Rs 1,760 | Target: Rs 1,925 | Return: 5 percent

The key technical indicators are positively poised on short-term as well as near-term timeframe charts.

The stock has potential to move towards its 100 percent Fibonacci extension of prior up-move, which is placed at around Rs 1,925. On the lower side, the stock will find support around Rs 1,760, where its 20-day and 50-day EMAs are placed.
