Currently, the stock is trading above its short and long-term moving averages. The short-term 20-day EMA and 50-day EMA has started edging higher, which is a bullish sign. The leading indicator, 14-period RSI has surged above the 60 mark for the first time after 76 trading sessions. The momentum indicator MACD line has crossed above the signal line, which resulted in the histogram turning positive.
The technical evidence indicates a strong upside in the coming weeks. On the upside, the level of Rs 796 will be the major hurdle for the stock. While on the downside, the zone of Rs 740-735 will act as strong support for the stock.

From a technical standpoint, it is comfortably placed above its key moving averages i.e. over 11% and nearly 22% from 50-DMA & 200-DMA. The 10, 30, and 40-week averages are trending higher. These averages are in an ascending order, which suggests the trend is strong. The trend strength indicator, Average Directional Index (ADX), is above 21 and it is in rising mode, which indicates strength. The +DI is much above the -DI. This structure is indicative of the bullish strength in the stock.
Considering the above factors, we expect the stock to test levels of Rs 1700 followed by Rs 1750 in the medium term. On the downside, the 8-day EMA will act as immediate support for the stock, which is currently placed at Rs 1517.20 level.
