The Nifty closed over 2% higher for the week-ended July 13 and is likely to surpass its record high placed at 11,171. The index is just 153 points away from making history. Experts feel this could well come occur this month if the momentum continues.
The Nifty has been hitting higher lows for the last 9 trading sessions, with supports are gradually shifting higher, which is a bullish sign. It has recently broken out above its crucial hurdle of 10,888–10,929 and extended its gains towards 11,078 levels last week.
India VIX fell 1.13% to 12.30 levels while aggregate put-call ratio moved to its historical high of 1.79 levels. Experts said the strategy should be to buy on declines till 10,900 level is not breached on the downside.
“The activity for major part of the week was very encouraging, but the last couple of days was slightly shaky if one considers the weakness in the broader market. We may not have a smoother ride going ahead, especially in the first half of the forthcoming week,” Sameet Chavan, chief analyst, technicals and derivatives at Angel Broking told Moneycontrol.
“As far as levels are concerned, 10,976 followed by 10,900 are likely to provide decent support for the market. On the upside, 11,078–11,171 are levels to watch out for. For the coming week, it’s advisable to keep focusing on individual stocks that are providing better trading opportunities,” he added.
We have collated a list of top 10 trading strategies from various experts that could return 4-11% in the next 1-2 months:
Brokerage Firm: SMC Global Securities
KPIT Technologies (KPIT): Buy| LTP: Rs 301.45| Target: Rs 330| Stop Loss: Rs 282| Return 9.6%
The stock closed at Rs 301.45 on 13th July 2018. It made a 52-week low at Rs 104.05 on 11th August 2017 and a 52-week high of Rs. 304.70 on 13th July 2018. The 200-days exponential moving average (EMA) of the stock on the daily chart is currently placed at Rs 220.41.
The stock has witnessed a massive upside from Rs 130 to Rs 290 levels in a single upswing from November 2017 to June 2018. Post the upswing it consolidated in a narrow range and has formed a “Bullish Pennant” pattern on the weekly charts, which is considered to be bullish.
Last week, the stock gained over 12% and has given a breakout from the pattern and managed to close around week’s high, which shows bias is aggressive for the stock.
Therefore, investors can buy the stock in the range of Rs c293-296 levels for the upside target of Rs 325-330 levels with a stop loss placed below Rs 282.

Havells India: Buy| LTP: Rs 560.20| Target: Rs597| Stop Loss: Rs 549| Return 6.6%
It’s been nearly three months, the stock continued its consolidation phase and it made several attempts to surpass the higher boundary of Rs 560 which turned out to be unsuccessful.
However, this week, the stock prices managed to burst through this congestion phase. The volumes did play their role as we witnessed a decent jump during the course of the action.
This was followed by a consolidation with middle negative bias and now it is back to its breakout point. Hence, we interpret this as a good buying opportunity for a near-term target of Rs. 597. Traders can keep their stop losses placed below Rs.549.
GAIL India: Buy| LTP: Rs 356.85| Target: Rs 378| Stop Loss: Rs 341| Return 6%
This index constituent underwent some decent consolidation phase in the recent past. Last week, the upper boundary of Rs 350 was finally broken with reasonably higher volumes.
In addition, the ‘RSI-Smoothened’ oscillator has also surpassed the 70 mark; providing some credence to the move. We interpret the last three days’ small correction as a good buying opportunity.
One can look to go long for a target of Rs.378 in coming weeks. The stop loss needs to be fixed at Rs.341.
United Spirits: Sell| LTP: Rs 607.95| Target: Rs 582| Stop Loss: Rs 621| Return 4%
This remains to be our preferred shorting candidate since the last couple of weeks. The confirmation of a near-term weakness was seen last week when it decisively sneaked below the ‘200-day’ moving average after nearly 10 – 12 months.
Last week, we recommended going short at around Rs 636 and our immediate target of Rs 605 has already been met. But, considering its weak structure, we extend the target to Rs.582 and hence, one can look to go short or revise stop loss for the existing trade at Rs.621.
