Stocks in action for the day: Bharti, Info Edge, Lloyds Steel, Delta Corp.

Market Outlook: Indian markets are expected to open in a flattish note on the positive range taking cues from the global markets. US stocks fell 1% on Thursday after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke gave no indications of new stimulus measures to boost the flagging economy. Indian Markets are following global cues, so we continue to hold a cautious outlook with support 5000 and resistance at 5200.

Global events to watch for:

OUTLOOK: Resistances breached. what next...?

Market sped up a bit further after spending some time initially going essentially nowhere. It looks like that sideways consolidation of the morning was more owing to absorption of some profit taking rather than any decline. There was some decline in RIL yesterday on the back of some news. We had spoken about this yesterday, stating that other stocks would have to counteract this for the index to stay up. That was certainly forthcoming. In the later part of the day, it was RIL once again that helped to push the index to fresh swing highs for the current rise and the whole thing was helped along by some good action in Banks. We had a buy signaled for the Nifty above the 5150 levels and that too has been triggered while the Bank Nifty continues to remain open for more gains towards the higher targets that had been mentioned earlier. With the levels on the hourly charts now crossed clearly, we have to continue with the bullish approach and look to buy the intraday dips. Ditto for the Bank Nifty as well.

Of course the higher resistances mentioned in the case of Nifty continue to be there and hence the moves may remain a bit jerky. The stock action is widening out but this is quite in line with expectations. But with more sectors now joining the fray and given that all of them are into recovery mode and the fact that people trading right now don’t really perceive so much risk at the moment should all combine to keep matters flowing further. Activity in the options area continues to be similar to the day earlier- with further additions to the 5000/5100 Put and unremarkable changes to the Call OIs. This continues to indicate a market that is more willing to go higher than lower. There was no retreat in the IVs even yesterday and this now prompts one to consider that the short straddles and strangles should get squared up. We can always replace them in case matters change. Possibly, if the market moves higher, we could see IVs peel off.

On the hourly charts we are trading at a level of an overhead resistance trendline as well as the Schiff median line on the pitchfork. Both these resistances will be defeated if the index were to continue past the 5170 levels. So for day traders that is the buying point for the day. Of course, now that the rise is several sessions old, we should keep a trailing stop that is not too far away from the current levels. Parabolic SAR on the hourly charts is around 5095 while the ATR on hourly charts is around 36 and that creates a stop around 5060 levels. We suggest moving stops on our pending longs to these levels. Another way to deal with the situation is to book out part of the profits at the current levels and ride the rest of the trend with a reduced position. If there is a gapped down situation then exit all longs.

Stock specific action has begun. But IT is in action. Infy is making attempts to close a gap and move higher. Keep that in mind. ONGC`s issue is to be launched. So that stock may remain in play for a while. Maybe the govt may not want the market to fall till then? Gitanjali moved to a new high. Something fresh in action there. Could be a play for today. Jubilant, Bata etc still in a falling mood. Exide is seeking further lows. Recall that we had advised readers to exit from investments in this counter many weeks back when the trend turned. Price action continues to confirm that view.

STRATEGY FOR THE DAY: Expect market to remain lively and head higher. Index may find the going less smooth but maybe not so for the Bank Nifty so shift focus within the index space. IT is also set to move so maybe chance your arm with IT index trades as well. Stock action is likely to continue with rapid shift thru different set of stocks. We are writing this report before the US events set for tonight. So if anything adverse emerges from the US, then take suitable evasive action. But trend shall remain undisturbed so not to panic and short. This is still a buy the dip version market.
