Today's pick is TATACOMM [stockquote]TATACOMM[/stockquote]. The stock has been range-bound between Rs. 220 and Rs. 260 for most part of the year. There is a secondary support at Rs. 200 levels.

The MACD line and signal line are moving very close to each other without giving any directional bias. Also, Long-term and short-term GMMA lines can be seen contracting, unable to give any direction to the stock.

TATACOMM's average correlation with the Nifty is -0.11 which is negative. The scrip will not be replicating movement of Nifty.

Analysts continue to have an underperform rating for the stock.

Given these technicals, we suggest a short-term hold. For the long-term a call can be taken once this Rs. 220 - Rs. 260 range is broken in either direction. However trailing stop-losses will be of help in case sudden trend-reversal were to take place.
