Technical observation:

HCL Tech is in an intermediate uptrend as it has been making higher tops and higher bottoms for the last several months.

The stock recently corrected from a high of 1378 and found support at the 1090 levels which also roughly corresponds to the previous intermediate highs, indicating change of polarity principle at work.

The stock has since then bounced back and has reversed its recent short term downtrend in the process. On Wednesday, the stock broke out of the 1090-1195 range on the back of healthy volumes. Technical indicators are giving positive signals as the stock is trading above the 20 day and 50 day SMA.

Daily momentum indicators like the 14-day RSI have bounced back from oversold levels and are in rising mode now. This augurs well for the uptrend to continue. With the intermediate technical setup too looking positive, we believe the stock has the potential to move higher in the coming weeks and therefore recommend a buy.
