Nifty Outlook

Nifty saw a strong rebound from the 'Run Away Gap' support area near 7700. A ‘Rising Three’ formation on the weekly scale augurs well for the existing bullish trend to remain intact. Further longs could be added with an expectation of a breach above 8000. While 7700 now could be considered as a trailing stop level for fresh longs.


Reco: BUY

Last Close: Rs 2,951

Target : Rs 3,160

Positive sector outlook & rebound from the immediate support. Occurrence of a 'Bullish Hammer' re-confirmed the support zone. Stock could be accumulated with a stop below Rs 2,880 with an expectation of a move back towards Rs 3,160.


Reco: BUY

Last Close: Rs 1,210

Target : Rs 1,260

Occurrence of a 'Bullish Harami' at the retracement support along with the positive crossover in RSI, indicates termination of the corrective move. The pullback provides a favorable reward to risk for fresh longs. Infosys can be bought with a stop below Rs 1,190 for a target upto Rs 1,260.


Reco: BUY

Last Close: Rs 462

Target : Rs 495
