Which stocks to trade today 12 Mar


On 11 Mar, Nifty did not cross my resistance level of 5975 identified in the weekly outlook. In fact todays market movement shows a weakness overall. So for me, the longs would be only above the resistance level of 6000 sustained.

Today is a news day with IIP data announcement at 11:00 AM. My suggestion is not to keep any positions between 10:30 and 11:30 if possible to avoid fluctuations.

Technical Analysis will not be much of use on high news days, so basically, I would trade based on levels.

Sector view: IT and Banking sectors are showing weakness. So I will not enter long trades in ICICI, SBI as in the past few days. Instead I will look for possible shorts in these stocks. Maruti has given a confirmation of Dark Cloud Cover Pattern discussed here. ONGC and Cipla are not moving as per expectations, so I am dropping from my watchlist.

1. ICICI Bank – Sell below 1127 for target of 1118. Below 1118, stock could slide by another 10-20 points. SL for shorts is 1140.

2. Maruti – Sell below 1412 with SL of 1427. Below 1405, the stock will further slide.

3. L&T – Buy above 1525 for target of 1530- 1550. SL is 1492. Please do not buy into the spike of IIP news. Do not sell L&T below the SL, since L&T recovers typically  even if IIP news is bad. Another condition for long trade in L&T is Nifty crossing 6000.

4. Infosys – Sell below 2930 with SL at 2945. Target is 2920.

5. SBI- Sell below 2190 with SL at 2206.

Please take positions only after 09:35 AM. Wish you good luck. Being news day, take only one open position at a time even if levels are met.

Any significant news which affects individual stocks or  overall market direction will invalidate the technical analysis behind the above views. In such a situation use real time charts to trade.
