The stock rebounded over 45% from the lows to close at Rs 1,066 on September 9, 2022. The price action suggests momentum is still intact.



Short-term traders can look to buy the stock now or down to a target of Rs 1,170 over the next month. A stop loss can be placed below Rs 1,015, experts suggest.

The stock recently gave a breakout from the neckline of the reverse head and shoulders pattern earlier in September and the formation of a feathered pattern on the daily charts adds to a bullish position.
