Here is what Amol Athawale, Deputy VP, Technical Research, kotak Securities Ltd, recommends investors should do with these stocks.
Post sharp correction from the level of 388, eventually it took the support near 265 and reversed. currently stock is witnessing non directional activity near 50 and 20-day SMA (simple Moving Average) perhaps, traders are waiting for the either side breakout. For the bulls, 325 or 50-day SMA would be the important breakout level to watch. And if the stock manages to close above the same, we could expect a quick uptrend rally towards 350-360 On the flip side, trading below 295 may increase further weakness up to 285-280.
Bajaj Holdings & Investment:
In the last week, the stock corrected over 10 percent. Consistently trading below the level of 200-day SMA and on weekly charts, it has formed a long bearish candle which indicates further weakness from the current levels. In addition, it also formed a lower top formation, that also supports short-term weakness. For the traders now 4700 would act as a trend decider level. Below 4700, it could slip up to 4300. Further downside may also continue which could drag the stock up 4150. On the flip side, fresh pullback rally possible only after 4700. Above which it could rally up to 4920.
After a medium-term correction, on daily charts the stock has formed double bottom formation. Last Friday, post weak opening the stock took the support near 405 and bounced back sharply. It also formed a long bullish candle on daily charts which is broadly positive. For the positional traders now, 405-410 be the key level to watch if stock manages to trade above the same then we can expect uptrend continuation wave up to 450-465.
