Usually, this kind of formation is seen at major turning points where bulls and bears try to establish their own supremacy,” Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist – Technical Research & Trading Advisory, told Moneycontrol.

“However, if we read the weekly price chart in isolation then it is looking like a consolidation breakout with a decent bullish candle.
