Bharat Petroleum Corporation: Sell | LTP: Rs 416.35 | Target: Rs 346 | Stop loss: Rs 440 | Time frame: 15 to 21 sessions | Return 17%
BPCL has been in a strong downtrend since past several weeks and in that pessimism, the stock hit a low of Rs 360 during late May 2018. Subsequently, it saw a pullback from an oversold zone and climbed above Rs 400 mark.
Last week close coincided with the June 23, 2017 close which was acting as a strong support. However, post the breakdown such level should reverse its role and now should prove as stiff resistance.
