“The current price action suggests upward momentum, particularly above 178 levels, with anticipated targets near 190 and 205. Notably, the stock has given a breakout of a symmetrical triangle pattern, indicating a potential continuation of the upward trajectory. Furthermore, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) at 70.10 levels underscores the underlying strength of the stock, aligning with the bullish sentiment," said Deven Mehata, Research Analyst at Choice Broking.

Mehata suggests considering buying opportunities in IRFC shares on market dips, particularly at levels around 161, which presents a strategic approach.

“These opportunities, supported by various technical indicators, offer potential entry points for investors seeking to capitalize on the stock’s upward momentum while managing associated risks prudently," he said.

However, to effectively manage risk, it is prudent to implement a stop-loss strategy below 158 levels, he said, adding that this precautionary measure aims to mitigate potential losses in the event of a market downturn or unexpected price fluctuation. 

“Adopting a cautious yet proactive approach, including setting appropriate stop-loss levels and capitalizing on market dips for strategic entry, can help investors navigate the current bullish trend in IRFC's trading environment effectively," the Choice Broking analyst added.

Meanwhile, IRFC Q4 results are scheduled to be announced on Monday, May 20.
