Day Trading Guide: 2 stock recommendations for Monday

view original post

Benchmark Index Nifty-50 concluded another session of trade marginally in the green amidst a rise in intraday volatility. For the week, the Index closed above the 17,800 mark, going up 1.52%. However, going ahead 17,920 will act as a key hurdle and a failure to take out this resistance zone of 17,900-17,920 may trigger profit booking dragging the Index lower to levels of 17,780-17,700. Moreover, a close below 17,700 may extend the profit booking dragging the Index lower to levels of 17,600.

However, a sustained trade above 17,920 in the coming week will extend the ongoing uptrend to levels of 18,080. Moreover, for the coming week, traders should watch out for a negative divergence building up in RSI w.r.t price and VIX which has scaled above the 16 level as these are signs of an intermediate top formation.
