The Nifty50 scaled Mount 9,600 last week and if the momentum continues, the index is all set to head towards 9,700 and 9,800 in the next 2-4 weeks.
After a strong rally witnessed in the last 2 weeks, investors are advised to book some profits and re-enter at lower levels, because the market is most likely to consolidate in a narrow range in this week.
Despite seeing some correction in the early part of last week, bulls managed to push the index beyond crucial resistance levels. Traders should not get alarmed about small dips which could come this week but instead look at entering markets at lower levels.
“We maintained our bullish stance on the market and advised traders to stay with the larger degree uptrend. Going ahead, we can see a continuation of this move; but upside in the near term now seems limited. In last 4–5 months, we have not used a word ‘cautious’ even on a single occasion,” Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst Technical, and Derivatives, Angel Broking Pvt Ltd.
“We would like to highlight few key observations, which are 1) the 127 percent Reciprocal retracement of the recent ‘Bullish Flag’ pattern on daily chart is at 9642, 2) The ‘Golden Ratio’ (161 percent Reciprocal retracement) of the corrective move from 8968.70 to 7893.80 is at 9624 and most importantly, 3) The ‘Multi-year Price Extension’ (127 percent of 2252.75 to 6338.50 from 4531.15) is at 9720,” he said.
Chavan further added that all these key ratios are converging in a band of 100 points i.e. 9,620 – 9,720 and hence, looking at this evidence, we would advise traders to start taking some money off the table.
Here is a list of top five stocks from various experts which could give a return of 11 percent in the short term:
Indiabulls Housing Finance: BUY| Target Rs 1150| Stop Loss Rs1028| Return 5 percent| Time 5 sessions
The stock has been forming ‘Higher Top Higher Bottom’ structure and is thus in an uptrend. In the last few trading sessions, prices have been consolidating near the ‘200 SMA’ support on the hourly chart, which also coincides with the 50 percent retracement of the previous up move.
The Relative strength index (‘RSI’) oscillator has taken support around 50 and is indicating a positive momentum. Angel Broking recommends buying this stock for the target of Rs.1150 by keeping a strict stop loss placed at Rs.1028.
NMDC: BUY| Target Rs 129| Stop loss Rs109| Time 14-21 sessions| Return 11.2 percent| 5-10 sessions

The mentioned breakout levels coincide with the 38.20 percent retracement level (116) of the mentioned up move and ’20 EMA’ on the monthly chart, which is placed around Rs113.75. Traders are advised to buy with a target of Rs.129 in coming 14 – 21 sessions. The stop loss should be fixed at Rs.109.
