While there could be more upside in the current bull run, experts warn against the risk of purchase at the high price.
"Though, its vertical up move remains the biggest concern for this counter as its price multiplied itself by almost 4 times from March 2020 lows of Rs 899, its recent consolidation breakout on daily charts is pointing towards a bigger target of around Rs 3800 levels," Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist-Technical Research & Trading Advisory at Chartviewindia.in was quoted on Moneycontrol.
"Moreover, the gap-up opening of the last trading session from a minor three-day consolidation is also hinting that this counter resumed its up move," he added.
"Though we advise traders to avoid fresh buying due to high risk and its vulnerability to profit booking anytime, exiting investors can hold with a stop below Rs 3,418 levels on a closing basis and should look for a target of Rs 3,850," he concluded.
