Recently Larsen & Toubro corrected from the peak of Rs 1,600 and settled near the Rs 1,300 mark. During the process, it made a falling wedge formation. In the previous session, the stock confirmed a breakout from this pattern which has a theoretical target of at least Rs 1,450. The price action was supported by the positive placement of oscillators along with a ‘hammer’ formation on the weekly scale. Thus, traders are advised to buy the stock near Rs 1,350 with a stop loss of Rs 1,300 for the upside potential target of Rs 1,450 in 1-3 weeks.


The pharma stocks along with diagnostic centre stocks have been the flavour of the market for many months now. Even has rallied significantly.
