Stock recommendation:

HDFC

The stock is in a continuous bullish trend. The level above 2,290 would also result into a multiple breakout on the charts as there is no real resistance above 2,300.70. Moving average and Oscillator setup is bullish on the short-term and medium-term charts.

It has remained resilient in the recent past. The scrip is trading above all important moving averages. Considering the technical evidence discussed above, we recommend buying the stock at Rs 4,623 for the target of Rs 4,700, keeping a stop loss at Rs 4,580 on closing basis.
