  • Nifty could be rangebound in 8100-8600 band, says Ashwani Gujral. The index seems to have found some sort of support at 8,100. The way we have bounced back, it appears that 8,100 may not get broken so easily. Whether 8,600 can be crossed only time will tell. What is clear is that the broader market or midcaps are likely to perform better in the next few weeks. Unless we get past 8,400 this could just be a sideways type of zone. As of now 8,100 does not seem to be under immediate threat, he adds.

  • Suggest to place your best on stocks making news highs, says Mitesh Thacker. Today was a gap up reversal and then we closed nearly at the day's high. That augurs well in the short term. I am still not sure that the short to medium term trend has changed on the upside. It is clearly a market which is more stock specific. The last few days of correction there have been stocks which have not fallen and are immediately breaking on the upside. That is where focus should be. From a trading point of view stocks making new highs are clearly the stocks where trader should place their bets upon, he says.
