Expert Speak 

Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (retail), Kotak Securities 

On Monday, benchmark indices Nifty rallied 99 points while Sensex gained 345 points on the backdrop of positive global cues. Across sectors, buying was seen in metal, realty and financial stocks, while intraday profit booking was seen at higher levels in IT stocks. Technically, the market remained in the range of 18585/62800 to 18640/63025 after opening a gap-up throughout the day. The index has formed a small candle after the gap-up opening which indicates indecision between the bulls and bears. We are of the view that the market structure is still bullish, but buying on intraday corrections and selling on rallies would be the ideal strategy for day traders. For the bulls now, 18550/62650 and 18500/62500 will be the major support areas while 18650-18700/63000-63200 could be important resistance areas. The strategy should be to buy Nifty between 18550 and 18500 and place a stop loss at 18400.  For the Nifty Bank, the strategy should be to buy between 44150 and 44050.  Keep a stop loss at 43900. It would face resistance at 44400 and at 44550.  Nifty IT was reluctant to move higher even though the broader market was doing much better. It might come down a little more, however, between 28800 and 29000, it has excellent support and on the reversal formation, we should be a buyer with a stop loss at 28600.
