Osho Krishan, Senior Analyst - Technical & Derivative Research at Angel One, said, "The stock has been in a consolidation zone for quite some time and is hovering in a slender range. In the recent period, the stock has seen some whipsaw moves but managed to sustain above the major moving averages on the daily chart. Considering the price action, the stock has stiff support around Rs 2,100 levels, breaching below which it may plunge to the swing low of the Rs 1,920-odd zone. On the contrary, a series of resistance could be seen from Rs 2300-2500 levels. A decisive breakthrough on either end could only dictate the near-term trend in the counter."
