Interestingly, there has been increase in daily volume over the past one month, backing the pattern. Also, the stock has conclusively surpassed the 50- as well as 200-day moving averages. The daily relative strength index has entered the bullish zone from the neutral region and the weekly RSI features in the neutral region.

Further, the daily as well as weekly price rate of change indicators feature in the positive terrain, implying buying interest. With this breakout of the pattern, the medium-term positive outlook has strengthened and the stock can continue to trend upwards. It has the potential to extend the rally and reach the price targets of ₹240 and ₹250 in the medium term. Traders a medium-term view can buy the stock with a stop-loss at ₹198.
