Technical view
 
"BALAMINES weekly and monthly momentum indicators are too overbought however the price is not reflecting the same as it continues its upward journey forming higher tops and higher bottoms," Jay Thakkar, VP and Head of Equity Research, Marwadi Shares and Finance Limited told BusinessToday.in.
 
"The daily momentum has again turned positive which is quite positive for the short term. The stock after providing the golden crossover has been trending higher in an upward sloping parallel channel and the lower end of the channel support is pegged at Rs 2,600 levels whereas the upper end of the channel which is the positional target is pegged at Rs 4,500 which will be the positional target," he noted.
 
"Since the stock had provided the golden crossover it has always limited its correction till its 50DEMA and it has not closed below those levels. So, every time the stock has come to 50DEMA it has formed a higher base there. This indicates that the 50DEMA is quite an important support for this stock which is now at Rs 2,828 levels," he added.
 
He further added that the two crucial supports in the short term are Rs 2,828 and Rs 2,600 whereas the positional target will be Rs 4,500 whereas short term target will be Rs 4,100.
