Axis Bank | Book Profit | Target Price: 930-950 |
For the last seven months, Axis Bank has given a strong return of 55 per cent. At present. the bearish divergence is seen on the daily RSI and daily MACD, along with trendline violation.

Maruti Suzuki India| Buy (above Rs 8,500) | Target Price: 9,000 | Stop Loss: Rs 8,300
Since October 2022, Maruti has been making lower high-lower low structures, resulting in a 16 per cent cut in the stock price. The said, the counter is trading below all its daily exponential moving averages (12-26-50-100-200 DEMA). At the current juncture, it is struggling to cross above 200-DEMA at about Rs 8,500. If Maruti Suzuki sustains above Rs 8,500, one can buy for a target price of Rs 9,000 and the stop loss would be Rs 8,300. A fresh buying at current levels is not advised, let the counter sustain above Rs 8500 for a couple of sessions and wait and watch.
