Stock Market Update | Jai Bala on markets
“The market might be looking like it is consolidating and holding support between 16,800 and 17,200 but under the hood the markets are deteriorating pretty solidly. There are nearly 400 stocks near their 52-week highs or 52-week lows and of them only 11 are near their 52-week highs, rest of them are near their 52-week lows. So that is a breadth deterioration. Also the leaders of this markets were FMCG, autos and IT. However autos have now clocked a double top and are breaking down. Only the FMCG sector has still not broken down, almost every other sectoral index has broken down. So the quality and the breadth of this market is getting poorer,” says Jai Bala,

Share Markeet Update | Kotak Securities' Shrikant Chouhan's view on financials

"Federal Bank is currently trading at Rs 124-125. Downside is limited. If we see further more decline then we should be buyer. We are expecting stock to trade within the range of Rs 120 and Rs 140. So it is a great risk reward ratio for positional investors to invest at current levels.
We also like ICICI Prudential, which is currently at Rs 420 but fallen to its extreme levels. Currently it is trading above the 20-days simple moving average. So from here, technically we can see the levels of at least Rs 450-460 but if we see the overall retracement, then the stock may even cross the levels of Rs 500," says Shrikant Chouhan, Kotak Securities.
