On the high side, Rs 1,470-1,480 is the cut and an immediate hurdle. A close above this level can take the stock towards Rs 1,550. On the upside, Rs 1,350 is a strong demand zone on any pullback.
The counter is forming a bearish head and shoulders pattern on the daily chart while Rs 4,200 is likely to serve as immediate neckline support for the lower level; Below this level, Rs 4,050 is the next key support level.
