The stock of Aster DM Healthcare jumped almost 8 per cent accompanied by extraordinary volume on Monday, decisively breaking above a key resistance at around ₹162. This rally has strengthened the short-term uptrend that has been in place since the stock took support at ₹132 in late March this year. With the recent breakthrough of the key barrier at ₹161, the stock appears to have resumed the long-term uptrend that has been in place from the March 2020 low of ₹83. The recent rally has conclusively surpassed the 21- and 50-day moving averages and trades well above them.

The daily relative strength index has entered the bullish region from the neutral one and the weekly RSI has also entered the bullish zone backing the uptrend. The short-term outlook is bullish for the stock. It has potential to extend the uptrend and take the stock northwards to ₹173 and ₹176 in the coming trading sessions.

Traders with a short-term perspective can buy the stock with a stop-loss at ₹162 level.
