IndusInd Bank charts suggest more weakness ahead
On Monday, the stock of IndusInd bank Limited gave an upward sloping trendline breakdown on the daily chart. This breakdown was supported by a relatively higher volume. Additionally, the stock had also formed a sizeable bearish candle on the breakdown day.
Along with this channel breakdown, the stock, after a span of over two months, closed below its crucial short-term moving averages i.e. the 50-day EMA. The stock is also trading below its weekly pivot level.
Interestingly, the RSI has given head & shoulders-like pattern breakdown on the daily chart. Besides, the 14-period daily RSI is currently quoting at 37.48. The RSI is trading below its 9-day average and it is in a falling mode. The momentum indicator i.e. the MACD line has recently crossed under the signal line, which resulted in the histogram turning negative. Further, the direction indicators have seen a bearish crossover as -DI has crossed over +DI.
Going ahead, the zone of Rs 825-Rs 814 is likely to act as a support for the stock as it is the confluence of 38.2 per cent Fibonacci retracement level of its prior upward move (Rs 571-Rs 983) and prior swing low. A sustainable move below this zone would invite further selling. On the upside, resistance is seen in the zone of Rs 911-Rs 930 levels.
