The Trend is Not Yet Rusty in Metal Stocks

May 17, 2022

The Nifty Metal index was one of the best performing sectoral index in 2021, gaining 70%. This was followed by 16% gains in the first quarter in 2022.

As equity markets corrected, the metal index too turned red. It fell to the year's lowest level of 5,290 recently.

Technically, the metal index is trading at crucial support of the horizontal trendline placed at 5,200. The index has reversed from 5,200 multiple times and is heading northwards.

Nifty Metal Index Daily Chart


Considering the trend in commodity prices, most of the metal stocks are trending bullish with a higher high-higher low structure.

We have highlighted the prices of Copper, Nickel, and Aluminium in the chart above. The prices are trending bullish with the support of a rising trendline.

As metal prices are bullish and the Nifty Metal index is at a support zone, the dips are an excellent buying opportunity. The trend is not yet rusty in metal stocks.

The trend change for the Nifty Metal index will be on a weekly close below 5,150.

At present, the Nifty metal index is trading up 4.4% at 5,600 levels. From the index, Hindalco, NALCO, Hindustan Copper, and JSW Steel are the top gainers, up 4-8%.
