Technical Analysis

ITC close to crucial resistance

YOGANAND D | Updated on January 23, 2018 Published on May 17, 2015


The stock of ITC has been moving sideways over the past few weeks in the ₹316-331 range. It hovers well below its 50- and 200-day moving averages.

An emphatic breach of the upper boundary at ₹331 can take the stock northwards to ₹338. On such a break, traders with a short-term view can initiate long position with a stop-loss at ₹320 levels.

Selling pressure could increase if the stock decisively falls below the support level of ₹316, which can pull it further down to ₹308 or ₹300 levels.

The stock has a significant medium-term support in the band between ₹300 and ₹308, which could halt the stock’s fall.

On the upside, to alter the stock’s medium-term downtrend, an emphatic rally beyond the key resistance band between ₹350 and ₹355 is required.

Next key resistances are pegged at ₹370 and ₹380 levels.
