    "The markets are a little bit stretched, no doubt about it but the markets have been defying these strict parameters for quite some time now. If you had been patient about what the market has been doing, you would be on the right side of the market and until last week the markets had one-day up, one-day down. The markets never had a follow-through on the downside and then it started going up. As an alternate picture when the markets crossed 10,900, it is 11,150-11,200 and we are there. Today’s high of 11,164 - if you look at the intraday charts, it doesn’t look like that is a final high. The markets are probably going to make one more high above the morning high either today or maybe tomorrow. If it does that on a lower momentum, which I think it could, then you might want to tighten your stops on the longs and be prepared – there is an outlier case where if the markets don’t respond to the resistance at about 11,200-11,225, the market could see a spike up of about 11,600 but don’t go into the market thinking that the markets are going to give you 11,600. However, you shouldn’t be getting out early. If you are long right now, don’t get out early. Keep trailing stop losses and the trailing stop for Nifty is about 10,960 to 10,920 at the moment. Hold on to that."

    On pharma & autos


    There are two sectors, which are clearly leading or behaving in a much stronger way, one is the Nifty pharma index and second is a Nifty auto index. Pharma index has outperformed the broader markets and Nifty auto index has performed in line with the Nifty. So there is still some more upside left in Nifty auto stocks but at the same time if the broader shift has to reverse then even auto stocks may find it difficult to perform on the upside. So our advice would be to book profits in auto space but on the pharma sector, we can still hold on to our longs and we have seen that in the past, whenever Nifty has sounded difficult, it is pharma which has done well and this year after five long years of underperformance pharma index has come back into its own and after last two months of consolidation, it seems ready for another round of upmove in the coming few weeks.

  • Technical View | The markets achieved their target of 11,100 upon opening itself! We should now be headed towards the levels of 11,500 - this may not be a one way move, but ideally that should be the direction of this market.

  • Top stock ideas from Shubham Agarwal of Quantsapp Advisory

    “The first stock call is a buy on Siemens and if you look at the behaviour there, the stock was consolidating for quote sometime. But even in that consolidation gradually longs are getting accumulated in the derivative data, so there was one hurdle of 1,200 Strike Call option, but now because the future is very close to that level there is a very good possibility that we might see a breakout happening from that level. So Siemens is a buy, we can participate this with a Call option. So a 1,200 Strike Call option can be bought for a target of Rs 46 with a stop loss at Rs 29.”

    “The second buy call will be on Berger Paints, the entire paint as a sector has started performing after a long consolidation. Berger Paints looks promising for a target of at least Rs 550-560, so an option trade again here. 540 Strike Call option can be bought for a target of Rs 15 with a stop loss at Rs 7.”

    “Lastly a buy call on Biocon, so even though Biocon has been consolidating for quote sometime and charts shows no evidence of any breakout, but if we closely look at derivative data, the derivative data is still suggesting that it is a kind of a long unwinding cycle which is continuing in Biocon and now because the pattern is matured and the consolidation has moved to an apex there is a good possibility that we will see a breakout happening in Biocon in 1-2 days’ timeframe. So a 440 Strike Call option can be bought for a target of Rs 18 and stop loss at Rs 9.”
