Market Watch: Rahul Mohindar of viratechindia.com

We like ITC in the heavyweights. We are looking at a target of Rs 242 on ITC. I would buy it with a stop loss at Rs 226.

I would use every decline to buy Tech Mahindra. Rs 973 is good support; so keep a stop loss reaching that level. Rs 1,025 is the target on Tech Mahindra.

Jindal Steel has broken out; right from the morning we have been identifying this. So, 327 is our first target on the stock and thereafter Rs 335 is also likely. So, buy on Jindal Steel. I had initial stop loss of Rs 298 on this.

Traders are advised to continue with a positive approach and look for stock-specific opportunities. As far as levels are concerned, the 20 EMA on the hourly chart at 14,970 is the support and till this is intact, one should look for buying opportunities on dips. On the flipside, 15,200 followed by 15,300 are the important levels to watch out for.

Manish Hathiramani, Proprietary Index Trader and Technical Analyst, Deen Dayal Investments

The markets have continued their northward trajectory this morning and we are very close to the 15,200 targets. While a pause at these levels cannot be ruled out, the overall trend for the Nifty remains positive and we should target 15,500 as the next level of resistance. A buy on dips is a prudent strategy to adopt in the current market scenario.
