“At the current market price, fresh longs are not recommended as we are expecting Reliance to test Rs 2,200 levels in coming sessions,” said Jigar S Patel, Senior Manager - Technical Research Analyst, Anand Rathi Shares and Stock Brokers

Should you buy Reliance
shares?

The brokerage recommends BUY at current levels. Recovery in polymer margins, telecom tariff hike, and improvement in asset utilisation of existing retail stores are likely to act as upside triggers for the stock, as per Vinit Bolinjkar, Head of Research, Ventura Securities
