The stock saw a strong gap-up opening and remained in an uptrend, forming a strong bullish candlestick pattern on the daily charts for a second consecutive session despite volatility in the broader markets.

DLF had a higher highs, higher lows formation for the third straight session. It saw a decisive breakout from the upward threshold of the channel formed since January, which can increase the possibility of a further upside.

Hence, the stock has the potential to surpass the Rs 400 mark in the short term, followed by the high of December 2022, which is around Rs 420.

DLF shares closed at Rs 375.25 on the NSE, up 4.2 percent over the previous day, taking their total gains to over 11 percent from the March 14 lows.

"DLF saw a corrective retracement after forming a double-top resistance in the Rs 412-418 range. The corrective move that followed saw the stock slipping below the 50-, 100-, and 200-DMA. After taking support in that zone multiple times, the stock has tried to put a potential bottom in place by rebounding from the Rs 345-350 level," said Foram Chheda, Technical Research Analyst and Founder of

Investors can consider entering the stock above the Rs 380 level, she added.
On the daily timeframe, the stock climbed back above all key moving averages (5-, 21-, 50-, 100- and 200-day exponential moving average), with a slight expansion in the Bollinger band. On the weekly, as well as monthly scales, there was a Bullish Engulfing kind of pattern, which is another positive sign for the stock.

The stock of DLF has shown a significant upward trend recently, rising from a key support level of Rs 340. "The shift in price polarity is noticeable, and a positive sentiment can be seen in the form of a gap in the recent upswing.

The price movements have caused the Bollinger band to expand, indicating a surge in volatility," Vidnyan Sawant, AVP - Technical Research, GEPL Capital said.

With this momentum, he feels it's likely that the stock will continue to climb and potentially reach Rs 400 and Rs 420 levels, with Rs 355 serving as a robust support level.

The country's largest listed real estate company witnessed a record-breaking pre-formal launch sales of over Rs 8,000 crore for its luxury high-rise residences, The Arbour, in Gurugram.
