Here's what Rohan Shah of Stoxbox recommends investors should do with these stocks when the market resumes trading today:
The price action of Route Mobile supposedly took a breather by means of profit taking bouts after 282 percent run-up from the listing day. The price action corrected 56 percent from the all-time high and entered into a lateral trading range after losing the downside momentum.
The current sideway trend not only hints at a more significant support level, but also that the ownership of stocks are potentially transferring from weak to strong hands.
We thus reiterate going long in Route Mobile with entry in the range of Rs 1,475-1,435 with an upside move towards Rs 1,730-1,750 zone. On the flip side, Rs 1,377-1,360 to act key support area.
The stock rallied almost more than 40 percent from the June 2022 low and post that stock turned sideways, trading in the channel which contained for more than 10 months.
The stock staged a breakout from the said channel this week with strong volumes and supportive momentum. Thus going forward if breakout unfolds well on expected line, price is expected to head higher towards Rs 1,280-1,300 levels, whereas, Rs 1,190-1,170 shall provide key support zone.
The stock broke out of from descending resistance trendline in April 2023. After that stock went into consolidation mode for almost a month and now previous resistance zone acted as support for the stock.
In last two days, the stock has been trading well above the support zone with good gains. However, 200 DEMA (day exponential moving average) has been another resistance point for stock on multiple instances. If stock closes above its 200 DEMA for the day, it will open up the targets of Rs 3,700 and Rs 3,900 respectively. On the other hand, the support will come at Rs 3,300 and Rs 3,240 levels.
