Time to buy, sell or stay invested?

Most analysts are largely positive about the stock from a short-term perspective.

Jigar S. Patel, Senior Manager of Equity Research at Anand Rathi Share and Stock Brokers pointed out that over the past week, Jupiter Wagons has shown consistent trading behaviour within a relatively narrow price range, oscillating roughly between 400 and 456. However, in the current trading session, it has notably surpassed this range and maintains its position well above it.

Patel observed that this significant breakout indicates a potential shift in market sentiment towards the stock. During this breakout, Jupiter Wagons also surpassed two important resistance levels: the R3 and R4 Camarilla pivot resistance levels monthly.

"Despite this bullish breakout, further upward momentum for Jupiter Wagons hinges on its ability to close above 457, specifically identified as the R4 Camarilla pivot resistance. Achieving this milestone could confirm the bullish trend continuation, potentially enticing traders to consider long positions," said Patel.

"Traders might contemplate initiating a long position with an optimistic target set around 510, reflecting an anticipation of continued price appreciation. To safeguard against potential adverse price movements, it is advisable for traders to establish a stop-loss order at 450," said Patel.

Jupiter Wagons technical chart

Mandar Bhojane, an equity research analyst at Choice Broking pointed out that the stock's upward momentum is supported by a consistent pattern of higher highs and higher lows on the daily chart, accompanied by robust trading volume. These patterns underscore a strong upward trajectory in the stock.

Bhojane observed that the Relative Strength Index (RSI) stands at 76.83 and is on an upward trend, signifying a significant surge in buying momentum. Both RSI and Stochastic RSI in the overbought region suggest that positional traders may consider holding their positions and implementing a trailing stop-loss.

"The overall trend for Jupiter Wagons is bullish, with confluence from various technical indicators reinforcing the optimistic outlook. Given these signals, there is potential for the stock to achieve a target price of 571 in the near term," said Bhojane.

"It is advisable to consider buying on dips, particularly around 440, capitalising on potential retracements in the stock price. To prudently manage risk, implementing a stop loss at 400 is recommended," said Bhojane.

Milan Vaishnav, CMT, MSTA, the founder and technical analyst of Gemstone Equity Research and ChartWizard FZE, underscored that over the past many months, Jupiter Wagons was seen trading in a defined and broad trading range; it has not participated in the broader market rally that happened over the past months.

Instead, the stock continued trading in a defined range while resisting the high point of 410 formed in September last year. Since then, the stock has tested this level multiple times. Recent price action shows that Jupiter Wagons has attempted a strong multi-month breakout by moving past this trendline resistance.

"The stock is now inside the leading quadrant of the RRG and may show relative outperformance against the broader markets. The RS line against the broader Nifty 500 index is in an uptrend; it stays above its 50-period MA. The on-balance volume - OBV forming a high much ahead of this breakout showed strong accumulation in the stock and equally strong support and participation from volumes in the breakout," said Vaishnav.

"Following this strong breakout, the support for this stock has shifted higher to 400-410 levels. Any fresh entries should use this level as a protective stock. Investors may continue to stay invested and trail their stop loss levels higher to a close below 400," Vaishnav said.
