Interestingly, with today’s strong price action, the stock has formed a bullish engulfing pattern of the chart. Moreover, the stock has taken support near its 50-DMA and 100-DMA before shooting up. Today’s bullish sentiment in the stock is backed by above-average volume, which shows buying pressure at lower levels. The Elder Impulse System has given a fresh buy signal, while RSI has also taken support at 43 and now heads to towards 50.
With the stock likely to have found a bottom, it looks set to test its near-term resistance zone of 840-850, and possibly its all-time high of Rs 870 in the medium term.
