After that it has risen to the tune of 1835 apiece levels in near one month time.

According to stock market experts, Kotak Mahindra Bank shares gave breakout at 1700 apiece levels and now it is on cusp of another breakout at 1840 levels. Once it breaks this hurdle, the stock may go up to 1935 apiece levels in short term.
