In the last week of March 2020, the stock of Linde India Limited has marked the low of Rs 401 and thereafter marked the sequence of higher tops and higher bottoms. From the low of Rs 401, the stock has gained 634% in 78 weeks. After registering the high of Rs 2945, the stock has witnessed a minor throwback. During this throwback phase mostly the volume is below 50-weeks average volumes, which suggest it is just routine decline after a robust move.
The throwback is halted at 50% Fibonacci retracement level of its prior upward move (Rs 1564.10-Rs 2945) and it coincides with the 20-week EMA level. The stock has formed a strong base near the support zone and in the current week, it has given a 13-weeks base pattern breakout on the weekly chart.

The 50-day (10-week) moving average is also above both, the 150-day as well as 200-day moving averages. The current stock price is above the 50-day moving average. Also, the current price is 213% above its 52-week low and currently, it is trading 6% below its all-time high.
The momentum indicators and oscillators are also supporting the overall price action. On the weekly chart, the RSI has given a bullish crossover and it is in rising mode. The daily RSI is also in bullish territory.
