Podcast | Stock picks of the day: Nifty could remain volatile; 2 stocks to sell, 1 to buy

Dinesh Rohira

After being resilient to a global sell-off pressure for few sessions, the Indian equity market on Friday (December 21, 2018) traded in negative trajectory, in line with major global headlines.

The equity market ended the weekend session to trade below its psychological levels on closing basis due to rising concerns on slowdown in global growth coupled with concerns over US Fed’s decision to continue with its path to reduce its balance sheet.

During a week under review, the Nifty managed to sustain above its 200-days EMA placed at 10740 despite slipping below a psychological level of 10900-10800 on closing basis.

The index made a weekly high of 10985 level on intraday basis to outperform global indices, but it failed to sustain the rally towards weekend to touch a weekly low of 10738 levels. The index closed the session at 10754 levels, a decline of 0.5% on weekly basis.

The drag primarily came from Nifty IT and Media which was down by 4.3% and 3.7% on weekly basis. While Nifty PSU Bank and Metal were among gainer, up by 1.8% and 1.6% respectively.

On the weekly price chart, Nifty formed a bearish ‘shooting star’ kind of candlestick pattern suggesting a strong grip of bear traders, while it made a long bearish pattern on its daily price chart.

The momentum indicator slightly signaled negative divergence with its weekly RSI at 49 levels down from earlier, while MACD continued to trade below its signal-line. With index managing to sustain above important level of 10740 on closing basis, a higher resistance is currently placed at 10985 levels, while support is seen at 10550 odd levels.

The Nifty is likely to witness volatile setup in coming sessions. Further, as farm loan waivers take a centre-stage, its impact is expected to keep equity market under pressure given an importance of fiscal number.

Nevertheless, a softening of crude oil price and appreciation in rupee is likely to buoyant the market to trade in positive trajectory.

Therefore, it is advisable to go long on selective opportunities only and use rally to exit the position, and maintain trailing stop-loss.

With lack of major cues, we maintain a rangebound trading level at 10880 on upside and 10550 on downside.
