Metal stocks have been in a recovery mode and have shown significant resilience in the current market volatility. Stocks like JSW Steel have managed to retest their new 52-week high despite jittery market conditions, indicating the prevailing positive bias in the metal space. We believe stocks like Tata Steel will resume their uptrend on account of short-covering.
The open interest in the stock declined sharply in June amid short-covering. Since September, the stock has witnessed a downtrend with short additions. These positions have begun to be covered. We now expect the momentum to be seen along with covering of short positions in the coming sessions.
In the options space, the stock has the highest Call option base at the 400 strikes followed by 420 strikes. As the stock was in a consolidation phase, Call writers are active at the 400 strikes. Sustainability above this level may trigger a further up move on the back of short-covering in the Call writer’s position. These positions may shift to higher OTM strikes. At the same time, Put open interest base is strengthening at the 380 and 370 Put, which can act as strong support on downsides

The stock has seen one of the highest delivery based actions around Rs 340-360 in June. We expect levels around Rs 360 to act as crucial support for the stock in the short-term. With the early signs of the stock moving out of the prevailing range, analysts expect it to continue its upward momentum
