Here's what Pravesh Gour, Senior Technical Analyst at Swastika Investmart, recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today.
After a spectacular move from Rs 40 to Rs 199 in the years 2022–2024, we have seen some profit booking at the higher levels and retested its last breakout levels at Rs 240–Rs 250. The structure of the counter looks good for short- to long-term investors, as it is trading above its important moving averages.
It has a psychological resistance level of Rs 300. If the price manages to break above the Rs 300 resistance level with conviction, it suggests increased bullish momentum and the potential for further upside. In the near term, this could lead to a target price of Rs 320 or even higher.
On the downside, if there is a correction, the major support level is identified at Rs 220.
The counter has formed a shooting star candlestick pattern, which indicates a potential price top and reversal. The shooting star candle is most effective when it forms after a series of three or more consecutive rising candles with higher highs. It has a strong base at 50-DMA, or around Rs 3000.
On the upside, 3600 is an immediate resistance where it may see some pause, but above this, it is likely to head towards 3800
