Investors with a short-term perspective can buy the stock of Kotak Mahindra Bank as the price action hints at resumption of the bull trend after undergoing a correction during the past couple of weeks.

The stock has been in a long-term uptrend and hence the recent correction can be used as an opportunity to buy. After registering lifetime high at ₹1,734.8 in mid-December, the stock witnessed a moderation to the support at ₹1,640. At this level lies the 50-DMA, making the support stronger.
