has a history of volatile swings but the volatility has subsided to some extent in recent months. It has been seeing gradual correction for the last three months after retesting the record high and tested the major support zone of the long term moving average(200 EMA) on the daily chart of late. The chart pattern combined with the positioning of indicators is pointing towards a steady rise from hereon. Traders shouldn’t miss this opportunity and go long in the given range.

Initiation range: Rs 163-166

Target: Rs 185

Stop loss: Rs 155

Manappuram has witnessed a breakout from a consolidation range and currently trading around the neckline area of the pattern, offering the opportunity to those who missed the chance earlier. The chart pattern and existence of multiple supportsaround 155 zone are adding to the possibility of a strong surge ahead.
