Amara Raja Batteries

On a monthly scale, it has formed an Inverted Hammer near the 0.786 retracement level of its previous up move started post covid. It has given a 11 percent return in the current month after hitting a low of Rs 437 in June 2022.
On the indicator front, monthly MACD (moving average convergence and divergence) is about to make a bullish crossover along with monthly RSI (relative strength index) making an impulsive structure near the oversold zone of 32 levels hinting at more upside in the said counter.
One can buy at current levels in small tranches and another at Rs 530-540 levels (if again tested). The upside is seen till Rs 650 and credible support is seen around Rs 510.
Sun Pharma Advanced Research Company
It is a classic case of volume spread analysis. If we closely look at the monthly chart then the rally which started from April 2021 till September 2021 saw humongous volume. This clearly states that smart money was behind this buying.
What is more interesting is that since then counter saw a 51 percent cut in price with almost slim volume (according to Volume Spread analysis which states that any correction in stocks with slim volume is just a technique used by smart money to wipe out retailers’ position).
