Even if you are a active stock market trader, it always makes sense to have a core portfolio consisting of high quality stocks spread across key sectors. One can use technical analysis to fine-tune entry with an objective to hold this portfolio for the long term. Kotak Bank is one of the candidates which would qualify as a core portfolio candidate.
The company announced its quarterly earnings yesterday, which was not too disappointing. A look at the daily chart indicates that the stock has completed a brief downward correction and has probably resumed the next leg of the rally.
It is apparent that the blue set of trendlines are in tune with the price. We expect a rally to the upper blue line at Rs.1,050-1,060 range.

Let’s discuss higher targets once the price hits our initial resistance at Rs.1,050-1,060 zone.
