Rajesh Bhosale, Equity Technical and Derivative Analyst, Angel One, said that post the overnight news of the stake sale, the stock prices have seen a gap-down opening. We have seen the spurt in volume with the stake sale happening at the opening. As of now, the momentum is weak but the overall trend is positive. Any dip further towards 1,600–1,550 would be an excellent opportunity to buy in the near term, whereas 1800 is immediate resistance.

According to news reports, around 1 crore shares, or 9.6% stake in CDSL worth 1,712.9 crore, changed hands.

The Standard Chartered selling process is reportedly being handled by JP Morgan India Private Limited. A CDSL representative did not immediately respond to an email, according to mint.

As to a JM Financial research report dated February 7, CDSL benefits from India's great economic potential and stable political and macroeconomic climate, which puts the country's capital markets in a good growth position. "However, we believe the stock remains fairly valued at current valuations of 44x/40x FY25/26E P/E," the research report stated.
