Stock Market Update | Rahul Mohindar’s stock recommendations

Here are some recommendations by Mohindar of

— HDFC Bank, the moment it starts breaching levels of Rs 1,580, I think we moved to about Rs 1,540. So one could be trading short on that stock with Rs 1,610 stop loss.

— Stock which looks weak is Reliance Industries, Rs 2,455 would be a first target and breaking Rs 2,455 I would say test of Rs 2,420 is likely. Keep a stop loss of Rs 2,505 and go short.

— SBI Life is one of those stocks that look strong and in the individual set I think we could particularly see much bigger strength as we move above Rs 1,315. I would recommend buying with Rs 1,260 stop loss and targets of about Rs 1,340.
