Chennai Petroleum Corporation (₹120.6): Buy

Yoganand D BL Research Bureau | Updated on March 09, 2021

Investors with a short-term perspective can buy the stock of Chennai Petroleum Corporation at current levels. The stock has been in a medium-term uptrend since it took support at around ₹64 in October 2020. In early December 2020, the stock had emphatically breached a key crucial resistance at ₹90 that had subsequently turned into a vital base level and cushioned it in late December 2020 and January this year.

The stock continued to trend upwards thereafter and breached an immediate resistance at ₹100 in the past week. On Monday, the stock extended the on-going rally by gaining 11.9 per cent with good volume and has surpassed a barrier at ₹110 decisively. It now has potential to extend the rally in the ensuing trading sessions. Moreover, the stock trades well above the 21- and 50-day moving averages. There has been an increase in volume over the past one week. The daily relative strength index has re-entered the bullish zone from the neutral region and the weekly RSI also features in the bullish zone.

Overall, the short-term outlook is bullish for the stock. Targets are ₹126 and ₹128. Traders can buy the stock with a stop-loss at ₹118.
