Sesa Goa: The outlook remains neutral for Sesa Goa. The stock finds an immediate support at Rs 325 and a crucial one at Rs 295.

A close above Rs 331 would trigger a minor rally in the stock. In that event it can go up to Rs 345 or Rs 360, where Sesa Goa faces resistances. A conclusive close below Rs 295 would change the outlook to negative for Sesa Goa.

F&O pointers: The Sesa Goa Feb futures saw a marginal decline in open interest on Friday.

However, it closed in a premium with respect to the spot close of Rs 329.
