The Nifty opened with a gap up on expiry day November 29 and finally closed above the 200-day moving average with a strong bullish candle. The index has been facing resistance at this level since last many days but now this 10,700 levels will act as support going ahead.
Any dip towards this level will be a buying opportunity on the index front. On the upside, it can go till 11,000 where it may find some supply pressure.
Nifty has given nearly 4.7 percent positive returns in November month so December can be sideways to consolidation month.
While Nifty has given strong returns, Nifty Midcap index has only given 1 percent return in the month. So in December series, individual midcap stocks can perform well and they can outperform the market.
IT stocks that have been under selling pressure saw sharp rebound in last 2-3 days. IT index stocks have bounced back from strong support zone and now any dip towards those lows will become a buying opportunity. We are recommending buying TCS and Infosys, which are leaders of this sector, on dips.
Bank Nifty is stronger than the Nifty and it has higher probability of going up. It can reach till 27,500 zone, while on the downside, 26,500 will act as a support. Large cap banking stocks like ICICI Bank can take the lead and help support the Bank Nifty in December series.
Metal stocks which have been under selling pressure for last many days are due for short covering. Stocks like JSW Steel and Tata Steel are good bet on the long side.
