Technical Analysis

Future Retail (₹527.5): Buy

Gurumurthy K BL Research Bureau | Updated on November 14, 2018 Published on November 14, 2018

The outlook for the stock of Future Retail is bullish. The stock surged 4 per cent on Wednesday breaking above the key resistance level of ₹510. Prior to this sharp rise, the stock has been range bound between ₹465 and ₹510 for about a month. Wednesday’s strong rally has broken this range indicating the resumption of the short-term uptrend that has been in place since early October.

Strong support is in ₹490-510 region which is likely to limit the downside. Intermediate dips to this support zone is likely to find fresh buyers. The stock can extend its up-move to ₹550 in the near term. A strong break above ₹550 will then increase the likelihood of the stock extending the rally towards ₹575 and ₹600 thereafter.

Traders can go long at current levels and also accumulate on dips at ₹515 and ₹505. Stop-loss can be placed at ₹490 for a target of ₹595. Revise the stop-loss higher to ₹538 as soon as the stock moves up to ₹548. The bullish outlook will get negated only if the stock declines decisively below ₹490. But such a strong fall looks unlikely at the moment.

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

A letter from the Editor


Dear Readers,

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.
