Day trading guide for Friday

Nifty has formed a bearish continuation formation.
Kotak Securities

In the past, whenever the market has opened lower on the day of the weekly expiry of contracts, Nifty has closed in the negative territory with a hefty loss. Wednesday’s session saw a similar trend as the benchmark indices closed in red with a loss of over 1 per cent. There was heavy unwinding in long positions of metal stocks, while auto, pharma and midcaps saw selective buying. The index has formed a bearish continuation formation. However, as the market is range-bound, till Nifty/Sensex does not close below the levels of 14,600/48,400, we could do a pullback towards 14,800/49,000 levels. The focus should be on cements, PSU banks and auto stocks if the market remains strong. Buy metal stocks if the market drops to 14,500/48,100 levels.Tech Picks
