On a monthly scale, post its downward move the counter took support at important retracement zone. In addition, on the daily charts, the counter has given a breakout of the Symmetrical triangle chart pattern along with decent volume activity, which suggests that the counter has enough potential for upside from the current levels.

Tech Mahindra

The stock has underperformed in the past few weeks and it has witnessed a downtrend. After the sharp correction from higher levels, the stock is currently trading in a range bound mode near its demand zone, which indicates accumulation at these lower levels. Therefore, upward movement from the current level is expected to resume in the coming sessions.
