The NIFTY kept its upward momentum intact and closed above 10700 for the first time since late August 2018.
Again, the gains came in the last part of the day.
There are three interesting facts :
(1) Yesterday in spite of the strong close towards the end , there were 23 Gainers and 27 Losers in the NIFTY stocks.
(2) Yesterday had lower high and lower low than the previous day. Now I am not too much into technical analysis but this is one statement generally touted about predicting the market going down. Truly, I do not know and maybe others too do not know but would not admit it. Market will do whatever it wishes and keep us guessing all the time.
(3) Sensex closed at a record high on closing basis. Good. But the advancing shares were 1197 and the number of declining shares was 1366 yesterday. On a day of record closing, there were more losing stocks.
Look beyond the numbers. Therein lie the potential good trades.
We are into 4 trades till now. EICHERMOT opened with a strong gap up yesterday and the trade was avoided.
The position of other trades is as shown:
TATAMOTORS has moved far away but others can work out. We stay with them.
New Trades for the Day :
EICHERMOT still meets the criteria of buying a PUT. It gave up part of the gains yesterday though it moved up.
We consider this to be an opportunity to buy a better Strike Price at a good price.
EICHERMOT PUT 19500 @ Rs. 250-270 can be bought today. Lot Size 25 Maximum Risk Rs. 6750.
Trade cautiously, trade profitably.

Yesterday after seeing that EICHERMOTO opened high, we decided to buy 20000PE at ₹400. Now waiting for market to reward.Reply

Wish to see Eicher at new 52 week lows by end of this expiry. Not sure if a mild correction in markets/Nifty could help the cause.Reply
Raveendran K A April 3, 2019 at 12:48 pm
52-week low is at 18800. Eicher will most probably make a new 52-week low this month. Medium term charts also look weak.Reply

Has anyone taken PE on Zeel? Looks very tempting to buy 370PE around 7-8.Reply
Raveendran K A April 3, 2019 at 12:29 pm
ZEEL is quoting at one-month low. PUTS can be bought here and further quantities may be added at small rallies. Along with EICHER MOTORS and BAJA AUTO , this is one of the few counters where trades on the short side can be done.Reply

HPCL after reaching 290.. now back to 260. Not sure.. which strike price to choose . Anybody got?Reply
Raveendran K A April 3, 2019 at 1:02 pm
HPCL and other OMCs like IOC and BPCL are turning weak.Reply
HPCL 250 PUT could be the right choice. Quotes at around Rs. 4. Lot size 2100.
vishal agarwal April 3, 2019 at 1:36 pm
Given the current price trend HPCL trade is looking tempting but its does not fit the 30day weak criteria. Second point is crude is certainly inching up to 70 but it is yet to be seen if it can sustain such elevated levels. One tweet from Trump will be enough to bring it down.Reply
Chirag April 3, 2019 at 4:42 pm
Yeah Correct Vishal…That was the exact same logic why I was reluctant to go for 260 PE yesterday. Brent crude needs to trade above $70,,,defying any comments from trump.Reply
