Today’s pick is STER [stockquote]STER[/stockquote]. The stock started the year with a rush to Rs. 140 levels, and after peaking off, it started its descent. The stock found a support around Rs 90 levels. Since then the stock has tested the support many times. Also, the stock seems to have found resistance around Rs. 120, which was tested twice in December, and stock again plummeted to the support levels. In the last three months, the stock has moved +3% vs. +5% of the Nifty’s.
The MACD line and signal line are moving parallel to each other, unable to give any outlook. Stagnating histogram levels do suggest forthcoming trend reversal. Also, Long-term and short-term GMMA lines are running close to each other and are not giving out any directional bias.
STER has a historical volatility in the range of 0.3 to 0.8. The scrip’s volatility is currently in the lower end of the range and hence not a concern for the traders.
Given these technicals, we suggest a short-term sell. For the long-term we suggest to take a call based upon its behavior around the support levels.
