Where is Nifty headed this week? Nifty witnessed a corrective move of more than 1,000 points from the peak. This indicates that the correction is not yet over. FPIs’ long-short ratio logic played well, and this ratio has much room on the downside . We expect a further market fall once the index starts trading below 18,080. Only a move above 18,500 would negate the bearish stance and might see new highs very soon.
What should investors do? Remain stock specific and avoid aggressive bets. We are bullish on Indoco Remedies. The stock has confirmed a significant range breakout above Rs 410 and is heading towards Rs 460. Buy with a stop loss near Rs 380. One can even buy Bayer Cropscience near Rs 4,900 with a stop loss of Rs 4,750 for an upside target of Rs 5,200.
