The stock of JK Tyre & Industries rose 8.5 per cent with good volume on Thursday. This rally has strengthened the medium-term uptrend that has been in place since the stock took support at around ₹99 in March 2021. Also, the recent rally provides investors with a short-term perspective an opportunity to buy the stock at current levels.
