Day trading guide: 4 stock recommendations for Friday

Kotak Securities


Hammer candlestick formation followed by inside body candles clearly indicate indecisiveness between the bulls and the bear. However, the medium-term texture of the market is still on the bullish side, but the daily and the intraday charts suggest that the uptrend may take a temporary pause near 14,620. If the index sustains above the same continuation of uptrend, it will continue to head towards 14,700 -14,775. On the flip side, trading below 14,500 could trigger quick short-term correction up to 14,350-13,250.

  • Target: Rs 230
  • Range breakout seen above 213 on spot.

Options: Nifty Short Strangle

  • Sell 21 Jan 14,950 CE at 22 and Sell 21 Jan 14,200 PE at 32

The Nifty for the past few weeks has been trending quite strongly while it made an all-time high of 14,653. However, the number of stocks in UpTrend is reducing gradually from the NSE 200 basket inkling a consolidation/range bound activity going ahead. Based on the current ATM IV of around 17%, a probabilistic (70%) range for Nifty till 21 Jan should be between 14,250 and 14,950. In this situation, a Short Strangle may be initiated.
