The market ended the historic week on a high. The Nifty rose nearly a percent for the week-ended August 24, despite muted global cues.
Buying interest was seen on every dip. This week, analysts see some more consolidation before the market resumes its journey again on the upside. Volatility will remain high ahead of August F&O expiry on Thursday.
The momentum is still on the upside but investors are advised to tread with caution. Crucial support for the index is placed at 11,500, while resistance is around 11,600-11,640 levels.
“We still believe it’s not a trend reversal yet and hence would continue with our bullish stance on the market. The pace may not be the same as it has been recently, but we expect buying to emerge at lower levels,” Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst, Technicals and Derivatives at Angel Broking, said. He sees strong support of the Nifty at 11,500 followed by 11,458. “On the higher side, 11,600–11,620 are the levels to watch out for.”
Last week, a lot of index balancing was seen and this is generally what happens after the market clocks a strong rally in a short span. Sectorally, experts are of the view that pharma still seems to be the preferred choice. Although it has run-up quite a lot in the recent past, they still believe it has a long way to go.

Nilkamal Ltd: Buy| LTP: Rs. 1,873.15| Target: Rs 2105| Stop Loss: Rs 1772| Return 12 percent
Since last fourteen months, this stock has been vacillating within the boundaries of a triangular pattern. Recently, the stock prices gave a smart surge from the lower boundary and in the course of action, have managed to configure a positive structure.
The encouraging part of this move is the volume participation, which has picked up substantially.
During the week, the stock managed to breakout from this multi-month ‘Triangle’; but due to the last two days’ profit booking, we cannot call it a breakout on the weekly time frame.
Overall we still remain upbeat and expect the stock to confirm this pattern soon. We recommend buying this stock with an anticipation of the development. The potential upside target can be foreseen at Rs.2105 and stop loss at Rs.1772.

On Friday, the stock price confirmed a yet another breakout with sizable volumes; indicating solidity of this rally. With the ‘Metal’ sector showing some encouraging signs; we expect the outperformance to continue as compared to its peers.
One can go long for a positional target of Rs.373 in coming days. The stop loss now can be placed at Rs.343.
