It has decisively broken the long down sloping resistance trend line, adjoining October 18, 2021 and May 5, 2022, may be indicating bullish phase.

Here's what Jigar S Patel of Anand Rathi Shares & Stock Brokers recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:
On the weekly chart, the counter is near resistance levels of approximately Rs 1,100-1,120. Over the last one-and-half-month, the stock has seen 40 percent appreciation. If one is already holding, then one should book some profits between Rs 1,090-1,100 levels.
Last but not the least, fresh buying in the counter is not advisable at the current market price, as daily MACD (moving average convergence and divergence) is over stretched at higher levels which is a sign of exhaustion.
What a great setup we are having in Elgi Equipments. The all-time high of Rs 422 has taken out comfortably and in current week, it has taken support near Rs 422 levels and then reversed from said levels. On the weekly chart, it is in the process of completing its N-wave near Rs 510 levels.
Thus one can hold and add at current levels with upside view till Rs 515 and plausible support is seen at Rs 420.
On monthly chart, City Union Bank has been making higher highs and higher lows since last couple of months. Also volume is picking up on monthly basis which is complementing its up move.
On indicator front, monthly MACD has given bullish divergence along with bullish crossover which further confirms possible upside. Also monthly RSI (relative strength index) has taken support from Rs 40 levels and bounced back nicely which further confirms upside in counter.
One can buy in small tranche at current levels and buy another tranche at around Rs 160 levels. Upside is expected till Rs 210 and support is seen around Rs 150.
