The stock of Asian Paints, which was consolidating in a broad range between ₹1,300 and ₹1,480 in the first half of this year, broke out of the range in July. The stock then continued to rally and registered a lifetime high of ₹1,834.8 in October.

After that the stock declined to a low of ₹1,666.15 due to price correction, before resuming its uptrend again. On Wednesday, the stock took a significant step upwards as it closed above the resistance level of ₹1,760, opening the door for further appreciation.
