Buy DLF, Sell Reliance Communications: Sanjeev Bhasin

Markets saw movements yesterday which tested both the highs of 7750 & the lows of 7500 before closing almost unchanged. The budget has pleased most however will the promises turn into implementation is the big question.

Global cues have again turned volatile & suggest that we should see more time in this consolidation on the Nifty with 7450-7750 being the range.

Rupee, oil, bond yields & global cues will dictate the trend in the short term.

For today we are suggesting going long on key beneficiaries of the budget mainly reality, & shorting the high beta underperformers mainly gold & telecom stocks.

Trading calls for next 3 days:


1. Buy DLF: Rs 222, stop loss Rs 216, target Rs 234

2. Buy Sobha Developers: Rs 470, stop loss Rs 460, target Rs 490


1. Sell Reliance Communications: Rs127, stop loss Rs132, target Rs112

2. Sell Titan Company: Rs 327, stop loss Rs 334, target Rs 310

The option we had initiated on short strangle gave excellent returns yesterday of around 36% if you bought back both the Nifty 7700 call @ Rs 45 & the 7500 put@ Rs 90 for Rs 135

WE recommend that you do cover & book profit around those levels as premiums have contracted.

Option strategy:

1. Buy Infosys 3200 put @ Rs 72, stop loss Rs 42, target Rs 122

2. Buy ITC 325 put @ Rs 7, stop loss Rs 3, target Rs 25

3. Short strangle on Nifty:

Sell 7500 put @ Rs  96

Sell 7700 call @ Rs 117

                    Total Rs 213

            Stop loss Rs 253

Look for contraction in premiums to buy around Rs 135
