If we are using technical analysis then we have to identify the kind of markets we are trading in. If its a roaring bull market as it was before Jan 2018 most breakouts usually work and all you need to do is to find out stocks going past resistances, bullish patterns like flag, cup and handles, stocks fresh 52 week highs or fresh all time highs and get into them and enjoy the ride.
The current market as phreak mentioned is more a sideways market with small cap and midcaps in downtrends. In these markets its ideal to focus on stocks having bottoming formations like double/triple bottom, base formations post big corrections and positive divergences in momentum indicators, ending diagonals, or triangles at bottoms and so on and so forth. Here too if one is having a trading mindset, there will be times to have a definite sell plan post successful patterns because if and when next downmove happens these bottoming formations might be violated.
Some stocks which might be forming a base are petronet lng, powergrid, jk tyre etc. Invested in these names recently as techno funda bets.
