Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL): The recent gap-down has disrupted the upside sentiment as per the daily chart. The massive surge in the volume at the gap-down has restrained many traders from taking risk. Unless the gap-down range of Rs 1,149 to Rs 1,065 does not get filled, it is better to stay aside. The current support is at Rs 962, which is it 50-day moving average (DMA). CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART


Bharat Electronics Ltd (BEL): The counter is attempting to cross 200-WMA, but it faces strong selling pressure towards Rs 120 levels. For a breakout to come forth, the resistance of Rs 120 needs to be conquered with huge volumes. Till the level of Rs 105 is defended on the closing basis, the upside bias may see robust push. The volumes have remained subdued. One can expect a surge after the counter manages to breakout, as per the weekly chart. CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART

Till the range is held and the price attempts to cross Rs 440 levels, the upside bias should prevail. The volume is trading at the lower end of the parameter, signalling no major move.  CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART
