Bata India Ltd (BATAINDIA): The counter touched the 200-day moving average (DMA) on Tuesday, placed at Rs 1,406. If it closes above the 200-DMA, then the sentiment will turn bullish. If that occurs, then one can expect a strong addition of volume resulting in a rally towards Rs 1,450 levels, which is its next resistance. On the downside, till the stock defends Rs 1,350 levels on the closing basis, this should imply the existence of buying momentum on decline. One can be optimistic about the stock.

Khadim India Limited (KHADIM): The counter has resisted 200-DMA since June 2020. This selling pressure was even experienced in August and in the beginning of October. This clearly implies the stiff resistance of 200-DMA which the counter is not able to conquer. If the same scenario persists going ahead, then price may see further weakness towards Rs 90 levels.  However, if it manages to conquer 200-DMA, currently placed at Rs 117.50, then this may see a turnaround in sentiment and the price may escalate towards Rs 140 levels, as per the daily chart.
