Add strong, selective stocks ahead of Budget
Mumbai: Today, the market has formed 'the three black crows candlestick pattern'. Consisting of three consecutive bearish candles at the end of a bullish trend, the three black crows signals a shift of control from the bulls to the bears. The Sensex is also diverging negatively on a daily chart and that would trigger further weakness. In brief, the BSE Sensex index is heading for 48,100/47,500 levels, if it breaks 48,400 decisively. On the higher side 49,000 and 49,400 would be crucial levels to surpass and sustain.
"As the market is falling vertically, we are of the view that ahead of the budget we should look for adding strong stocks and selective stocks to our positional portfolio between 48,100 and 47,500 levels," says Shrikant Chouhan, EVP, equity technical research at Kotak Securities.
