The pullback in Adani Green Energy share price appears as a corrective move in relation to previous major up move, Abhishek Karande, CMT, Senior Research Analyst, Reliance Securities, told Financial Express Online. “This correction could possibly extend till 900-870 levels,” he said. Once the correction is complete, the primary uptrend could possibly resume as higher time frame charts remain firm and surpass the previous high’s of Rs 1200-mark, he added. Adani Green Energy Ltd shares ended 0.62 per cent up at Rs 953.45 apiece. In comparison, BSE Sensex fell 470 points or 0.96 per cent to 48,564.
