Reliance Q3 Results Live: What analysts say on RIL Q3 results
Santosh Meena, Head of Research, Swastika Investmart Ltd said, ‘’Reliance has broken out of a multi-month consolidation pattern with a bullish flag formation near its 20-day moving average (DMA). This technical setup suggests the potential for further upside towards the 2,900 level.''
‘’However, option data hints at some resistance near the 2,800 strike price, as call writers seem confident at that level. Therefore, a decisive break above 2,800 would be needed to overwhelm these call writers and fuel further gains. On the downside, the 20-DMA at 2,650 acts as a strong support level,'' added Meena.
