Nilesh Jain, Assistant Vice President (AVP), Equity Research Technical and Derivatives at Centrum Broking said that the positive impact of share purchase in a block deal does not appear to be showing as of now… at least that has not reflected in the price movement, he reiterated.
His view was entirely on the basis of technical analysis of the stock.
He was however bullish on this stock an said that the structure on technical charts still strong, notwithstanding the current price correction.
He sees a strong support at Rs 142, which is also its 200-day moving average (DMA). His recommendation is to BUY ON DIPS.
He puts a short term target price of Rs 160-Rs 165. He said that he expected a big breakout once the levels of Rs 165 is crossed which is an important resistance level. The next target price is Rs 180 once this level is breached.
Currently the Canara Bank stock is stuck in a range, this technical analyst said.
It is among the top stocks that is on the radar of Jain apart from State Bank of India shares (SBI shares) and Bank of Baroda shares (BoB shares).
