Buy these two stocks for near-term gains while Nifty navigates choppy waters


The short term trend of Nifty continues to be choppy with weak bias.

By Nagaraj Shetti

The decline with choppy trend continued in the market for the third consecutive session on Wednesday and Nifty closed the day lower by 26 points. After opening on a positive note, Nifty made an attempt to move up in the early to mid part of the session. Intraday weakness got triggered at the high of 15839 in the afternoon and the market showed a gradual weakness from the highs in the second half and closed near the lows.

A small negative candle was formed with minor upper shadow. This pattern signal continuation of weak trend amidst a range bound action in the market. Wednesday’s negative candle has overlapped the similar negative candle of previous session. This action has not negated the recent uptrend in the market and such consolidation movements near all time high could eventually result in an upside breakout of the hurdle.

After showing sharp declines from all-time highs in past, the Nifty witnessing a range bound action this time could indicate that the market is preparing for a sharp movement on either side. The overall chart pattern signal higher possibility of an upside.

The short term trend of Nifty continues to be choppy with weak bias. The next support of 20 day EMA could offer base at 15670 in the short term. The range bound action is likely to continue for the next session. The near term high low range to be watched at 16650-16850 levels.

Stock Picks: 

Buy Rashtriya Chemicals & Fertilizers Ltd- (CMP Rs 83.70)
