NSE/BSE Top Gainers & Losers – Coverage on LKP Securities…
Before taking a trading position, one of the starting points for most traders is
to see the stocks that have consistent momentum in their favour and stocks that
have momentum going against them. At LKP Securities you can actually analyse gainers
and losers along the following broad criteria…
- It is possible to sort gainers and losers on the basis of the stock
exchange. You can either view the gainers and losers on the BSE or on the NSE. Obviously,
BSE will be more suitable if you are looking at small and mid cap stocks as the
stock coverage is much larger. Of course not all gainers are good and not all gainers
are bad. That is the basic principle.
- You can also sort the gainers and losers based on different time
frames. Currently, you can sort the gainers and losers over a 1-day, 1-week and
1-month time frame. This has two important implications. By comparing the 3 time
frames you can easily make out where the momentum is. Normally, if stocks have momentum
in their favour then they would be among the top gainers in all the 3 time frames.
Avoid stocks that are too volatile over the 3 time frames.
- Lastly, you can also drill down deeper into sub-classifications
of the market. You can check gainers and losers for the market as a whole. But you
can also look at specific themes like large caps, mid caps, small caps, commodities
etc. You can also check for gainers and losers across sectors like banking, pharma,
capital goods, IT etc. When you look at these gainers and losers across sectors
you can identify emerging sectoral trends.
What to watch out for when evaluating gainers and losers…
A few basic points are to be noted. Not all gainers are good and not all losers
are bad. Secondly, check out the volumes of gainers and losers. Any trend with thin
volumes is either deceptive or it is not sustainable. Thirdly, gainers and losers
are just triggers and you need to look at underlying fundamentals and technicals
before taking an investment view or a trading call on the stock.
