After a week of stability following a severe plunge, Bajaj Finserv is now trading at 1,552. The stock has strong support around 1,500.

The RSI is currently at 43, up from 30 a few days ago, indicating that momentum is in place. It has also established a bullish Harami pattern on the weekly chart, signalling that a reversal would occur in the near term.

HAL has been consolidating since the last week around 2,565 which is also a 50-day EMA. The stock has shown a reversal from the lower levels of 2,410 which was strong support on the chart.

HAL has also formed a bullish engulfing pattern on lower levels which is a sign of reversal. Once the stock crosses its resistance above 2,565, it can move towards 2,680.

The RSI indicator is also comfortably trading at the 42 level which shows the strength for the stock to move upwards.

"We recommend buying HAL at the current market price. It can also be accumulated near 2,500 with a medium-term target price of 2,660. Our analysis will be invalid if the price closes below 2,420," said the analyst.

The price movement of the stock shows that above 125 level, considerable traction is possible which would reinforce the stock's bullishness.

The stock is trading above 20 and 50 DMA, indicating strength in price action. It is trading above the middle Bollinger band and a positive crossover is indicated in RSI and MACD suggesting continuity in the bullish trend in the near term.

Moreover, it is also forming a higher-high, higher-low formation on the daily chart.

"One can initiate a long position at the current market price. However, on the safer side, near 123-124 levels would be a better range to enter. Closing and sustaining above 125 will lead to 132-135 levels in the coming days," said the analyst.
