Infosys is likely to see some selling further due to the turmoil in Europe and US. Reuters

Infosys bounced back marginally from its previous low of Rs 2342. However, the bounce back was late in the day and on weak volume. BNP Paribas has come out with a very negative outlook for the sector, which is likely to put pressure on the sector. Infosys is likely to see some selling further due to the turmoil in Europe and US.

Power Trading Corporation (Buy near 68, target of Rs 70)

Power Trading Corporation has tested the Rs 68 levels four times in the last four months. It is very close to testing the same as it closed at Rs 69.30 on Thursday after touching a low of Rs 68.50. As the recent fall has been on low volume, it is likely the stock can bounce back from Rs 68.
