"Since last year, Nykaa has been making lower high and lower lows structures, resulting in a 71 per cent cut in stock price. The said counter is trading below all Daily Exponential Moving Averages (12-26-50-100-200 DEMA). At extreme levels, it is trading near its crucial support zone of Rs 120-125.

As of now wait and watch," said Jigar S Patel, Senior Manager - Technical Research Analyst at Anand Rathi Shares and Stock Brokers.

"Nykaa continued its downward spiral and a daily close below Rs 123 could trigger a further fall till Rs 107 level, despite the stock price being oversold. Strong resistance will be at Rs 133," said AR Ramachandran from Tips2trades.
