    How should you trade?

    "The upside momentum has continued for the seven sessions and the market is now nearing a overbought region. The presence of crucial long term resistance around 12800-12850 and the emergence of intraday volatility could signal chances of reversal from the highs," said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities. He added that long positions needs to be protected with appropriate stoploss. "We are unlikely to see any significant upmove above 12800-12850 levels. The formation of reversal pattern at the highs could confirm a quantum of decline from the highs. Immediate support is placed at 12665," he said.

    Buy these two stocks for near term gains as Nifty repeatedly charts its way towards fresh highs

    After witnessing a dream rally last week, the Nifty continued to rally this week to new lifetime highs. The Nifty has been continuously moving higher since last week after finding support at the 50-day SMA and breaking out of a 3-day trading range on last Tuesday. The Nifty also remains above the 20-day and 50-day SMA and has now closed at a new life time high after clearing the recent highs of 12026. The odds therefore do seem higher of the Nifty moving up further towards the 12900-13000 levels in the coming sessions. Short term sell offs however cannot be ruled out.
