Infosys, Asian Paints, Tata Steel among 4 stocks to buy as Sensex, Nifty gain; market texture volatile

The texture of the chart suggests, 16700/56100 and 16600/55800 would be the key support levels, on the other side, 16900-17000 and 56700-57000 would act as an immediate hurdle for the market.

Technically, on daily charts, the Nifty formed a Doji kind of candlestick formation which indicates indecisiveness between bulls and bears.

The benchmark indices witnessed a sharp pullback rally as the Nifty 50 ended 156 points higher while the BSE Sensex was up by 497 points. Among sectors, all major sectoral Indices traded in the green but the metal index gained the most, rallying over 3 per cent. Technically, on daily charts, the Nifty formed a Doji kind of candlestick formation which indicates indecisiveness between bulls and bears. On intraday charts, it also completed one leg of the pullback rally. We are of the view that after a modest pullback rally the market may consolidate within the range of 16600- 16950 and 55800-57000 price ranges. 

The texture of the chart suggests, 16700/56100 and 16600/55800 would be the key support levels, on the other side, 16900-17000 and 56700-57000 would act as an immediate hurdle for the market. The texture of the market is volatile, hence, buying dips and selling on rallies would be the ideal strategy for the day traders. However, below 16600/55800 uptrend would be vulnerable.
