Following a corrective decline, the stock took at ₹100 in November 2020 and continued to trend upwards. The stock has been on a medium-term uptrend since then. While trending up, the stock had decisively breached a key resistance at ₹125 in early December last year and strengthened the uptrend. After a sideways movement, the stock gained 3.6 per cent accompanied by extraordinary volume on Wednesday, breaking above a key hurdle at ₹134.
