Day trading guide for Monday

Kotak Securities

On a daily basis, the market has managed to revisit 13,770 levels. It was mainly due to excessive bullishness in the market. The heavyweights from the basket of the Nifty50 index closed in the green and above their immediate hurdles. It would lift the market to 13,850 or 13,900 levels in the near term. However, sustenance above the level of 13,900 would generate extra steam in the market. Otherwise, the trend would turn volatile between the broader ranges of 13,400 and 13,900. Our strategy for the coming week should be to focus more on stocks and sectors instead of indices. As we are at crucial levels, we should be more biased toward technology, pharmaceuticals and FMCG companies.

  • The last couple of days have been a roller-coaster ride as Nifty. From 13,750 levels, it came down crashing all the way up to 13,130 and then saw a full recovery as well. Although markets are still in an upward trend, signs of fatigue are visible. The number of stocks in high upside momentum has reduced significantly inkling a consolidation/range bound activity going ahead. In this situation, a Short Strangle is apt.
