Investors with a short-term horizon can consider buying the stock of Essel Propack at current levels. Following a medium-term downtrend, the stock found support at ₹85 in late October. This base level limited the downside in November as well and subsequently the stock began to move higher. Since then, the stock has been in a medium-term uptrend. Short-term trend is also up.

In February, the stock conclusively breached its moving average compression (21-, 50- and 200-DMAs) at around ₹109 and has been sustaining above these averages. On Thursday, the stock surged 7 per cent accompanied by above average volume, breaching an immediate resistance at ₹115. This rally has strengthened the short-term uptrend.

The daily relative strength index has entered the bullish zone from the neutral region and the weekly RSI is on the brink of entering the bullish zone from the neutral region. Moreover, the daily and weekly price rate of change indicators hovers in the positive terrain implying buying interest.

The stock can extend the ongoing rally and reach the price targets of ₹122 and ₹125 in the upcoming trading sessions. Traders can buy the stock with a stop-loss at ₹114.5.

(Note: The recommendations are based on technical analysis. There is a risk of loss in trading.)

A letter from the Editor

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers.
