, which was up nearly 13 per cent, , which rose more than 3 per cent, and , which hit a fresh 52-week high and closed with gains of nearly 2 per cent on Thursday.

Here’s what Amol Athawale, Deputy Vice President – Technical Research, Kotak Securities, recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:

JSW Energy: Buy

Last Thursday, the stock rallied nearly 12 per cent. After a short-term correction, it took support near the 200-Day SMA (Simple Moving Average) and bounced back sharply.

On the weekly and daily charts, the scrip has formed a strong bullish candle which supports a further uptrend from current levels.

In addition, it successfully cleared the 50-Day SMA or 312 resistance zone and succeeded to close above the same, which is largely positive.

For trend-following traders, Rs 315-312 could be the key level to watch. If the stock manages to trade above the same, then we can expect an uptrend continuation wave up to Rs 345-355 levels.

APL Apollo: Buy

The stock has rallied over 10 per cent so far in the week. On Thursday, it rose 4 per cent and registered a fresh all-time high of Rs 1,177.

On the daily and weekly charts, APL Apollo has formed a promising uptrend continuation formation. It has also formed a long bullish candle, which is broadly positive.

The medium-term texture of the stock is on the positive side, but we could see some profit booking if the stock succeeds to close below Rs 1,100.

A close below Rs 1,100 could take the stock towards Rs 1,050-1,035. On the flip side, as long as it is trading above Rs 1,100, the uptrend texture is intact. Above the same, it could move up to Rs 1,200-1,225 levels.

IDFC First Bank: Buy

Post a quick short-term correction, the stock took support near Rs47 and reversed sharply. Post reversal, it has rallied over 8 per cent so far this week and also formed a long bullish candle on the weekly charts.

In addition, on the daily charts, it is consistently forming a higher bottom formation, indicating a continuation of the uptrend in the near future.

For the bulls, 50 or 20-Day SMA (Simple Moving Average) would be an important support level to watch. Above this, it could move up to Rs 60-64. On the flip side, trading below Rs 50 may increase further weakness up to Rs 47-45 levels.
