stock is worth watching as the stock is forming a 12-week, 25% deep Consolidation
Base. The current price is only 4% away from its ideal buy price of INR 5822. Aggressive investors could use any tight area breakout inside the base as an opportunity to initiate a small position. A conservative approach may be to add the stock to your watchlist so that you are ready to pounce if it breaks out to the traditional entry point.
The current trend of the 10-week moving average is still downward. However, if we look at a bigger picture, the long term average (40-week moving average) is in an uptrend. The 10-week moving average is above the trending 40-week moving average. The stock is trading around 7.35% away from the 10-week moving average.
