Sumeet Bagadia Picks IndusInd Bank as Top ‘Maha Shivratri Choice’; Here’s Why

IndusInd Bank is recommended as the top pick by expert Sumeet Bagadia for the upcoming period, citing positive indicators in its stock behavior. Currently priced at ₹1,550, the bank has recently shown signs of a strong uptrend by forming higher highs and higher lows, breaking out of its previous trading range. The expert predicts continued bullish momentum, with a target range of ₹1,690 to ₹1,800, while emphasizing robust support at ₹1,440.

Key technical indicators, such as Exponential Moving Averages (EMAs) and Relative Strength Index (RSI), suggest a favorable outlook. The stock is trading above key EMAs, indicating strong bullish momentum, and the RSI is on an upward trajectory at 57.54, reflecting increasing buying momentum. The Stochastic Relative Strength Index (Stoch RSI) also shows a positive crossover, supporting the potential for reaching target prices.


Considering the current market conditions and technical analysis, the expert advises a strategic approach, suggesting buying on dips at ₹1,510 for those aiming for the ₹1,690 to ₹1,800 price target, with prudent risk management.
