Nifty support seen at 10550

On Tuesday, Nifty found resistance in the gap range of 10755-10844. Nifty has to close above 10800, to get the further bullish momentum. Last week, Nifty formed bullish higher top and higher bottom formation. Nifty has got strong support around 10550 and it would be advisable to hold longs with that stop loss. We believe that Nifty should remain bullish for the November series.

Buy ITC: 284

Target: Rs 302

Stop loss: Rs 274

The stock price has reversed northward after taking support on long-term trend line support seen on the weekly charts. FMCG sector has been showing a resilient move in the recent past. The stock has closed above its 200 DMA resistance. Oscillators and Indicators have also turned bullish on the short to medium term charts.

Considering the technical evidence discussed above, we recommend buying the stock at CMP for the target of 302, keeping stop loss at 274 on closing basis.

SELL JINDAL STEEL: 171
