GAIL (India) poised for a technical breakout, presents an attractive buying opportunity

In Monday's trading session, the market exhibited consolidation with a negative bias, causing the stock to trade around the day's low. In such weakness one stock caught the attention of chartists (Technical analysts) as the stock experienced a remarkable surge of over 2.5% with robust volumes surpassing the 20-day average and now ready to register a technical breakout of a continuation price pattern.

GAIL (India) Ltd is engaged in various aspects of the natural gas industry, including exploration, production, processing, transmission, distribution, and marketing. It operates in segments such as Transmission services, Natural Gas Trading or Marketing, Petrochemicals, LPG and Other Liquid Hydrocarbons, and Others.

From a technical standpoint, a careful analysis of the weekly chart reveals a 111-week consolidation phase. The stock has been consolidating within a wide range, with the upper boundary near Rs 115.55 and the lower boundary at Rs 83. Notably, the lower boundary aligns perfectly with the 38.2% retracement support level of the previous significant rally, as depicted on the weekly chart from March 2020. A trendline drawn from the high of the mid-week of April 2020 (Rs 115.55) to the mid-week of May 2023 (Rs 113.95) identifies the breakout trendline level (Rs 114) of the continuation price pattern.

Today, GAIL (India) Ltd witnessed buying interest in the morning session, resulting in a substantial surge of approximately 3.5% just below the mentioned breakout level. This rally was accompanied by strong trading volumes, surpassing the average volumes of the past 20 days. Closing above the Rs 114 level on a weekly basis will confirm the breakout, and based on the pattern, the stock's minimum target is estimated to be around Rs 140, indicating a potential increase of over 20% from the breakout level.

Considering all these factors, the stock presents an attractive buying opportunity that merits careful attention in the upcoming sessions.

Investors should keep a close eye on this trending microcap stock.
