On Tuesday, the benchmark indices witnessed a pullback rally, the Nifty ended 89 points higher while the Sensex was up by 274 points. Among sectors, PSU bank index continued to outperform whereas Nifty Realty registered profit booking. Technically, after a three days price correction, indices NSE Nifty 50 and BSE Sensex took support around 18150 and 61100 respectively and reversed. They also formed a small bullish candle on daily charts. We are of the view that 10 days SMA (Simple Moving Average) 18272 and 61500 would be the immediate hurdle for bulls.
On the flip side, 18150 and 61100 could be the immediate support zone for the traders. Above 10 days SMA levels of 18272 and 61500, the indices could move to 18370 and 61800 levels respectively. Further upside may also continue which could lift the indices to 18420 and 62000. However, below 18150 and 61100 levels, the indices could slip till 18100, 18050 and 60900, 60650 levels respectively. The current market texture is non-directional hence level based trading would be the ideal strategy for day traders.

CMP: Rs 238.3 | Target price: Rs 250| Stop Loss: Rs 232
The counter had been in a declining trend in the past few sessions. However, at present there is a pause in its downward movement due to its strong multiple support levels. The stock has reversed its trend from its demand zone, which could act as a strong base, simultaneously making it a favorable candidate in terms of risk and reward.

On the daily scale, the stock has presented a robust rally. After a breather of few trading sessions and a pause in the momentum within a range, finally the stock is again gaining bullish traction for further upside. Therefore, short-term texture is looking attractive for bullish continuation formation from the current levels.
Mahindra and Mahindra (M&M): BUY
CMP: Rs 1228.45 | Target price: Rs 1290 | Stop loss: Rs 1200

L&T Technology Services (LTTS): BUY
CMP: Rs 3855.8 | Target price: Rs 4050 | Stop loss: Rs 3770
