Tips for trade from SMC Global; Buy HPCL, Crompton Greaves

Here are a few trading strategies from SMC Global Securities for trade today:

Nifty

Last close: 7,831

After correcting sharply from 8,340 levels, nifty tested the levels of 7700 in single downswing. From past few days, Nifty is consolidating in the range of 7,700-7,900 levels with negative bias. Considering all, Nifty is likely to form “Head and Shoulder” pattern on daily charts, which is bearish in nature. Although we don’t have the neckline breakdown of same but its consolidation indicates that there will be a major downside from current levels. So any breakdown of 7700 levels can open the door for further downside by 7,540 levels. On the higher side, any breakout of 7,950 can give the decent upside upto 8,100 levels.
