NTPC share price jumped 3% to touch 52-week high on Friday's session following the news that its wholly owned subsidiary, NTPC Green Energy, has chosen four investment banks to handle its initial public offering (IPO), valued at 10,000 crore, as reported by Moneycontrol. Since Life Insurance Corporation of India's share sale in 2022, it would be the largest by a state-owned company. The NTPC share price today opened at 363.10 apiece on the BSE. The stock touched an intraday high of 374.50 and an intraday low of 363. 

According to Rajesh Bhosale - Equity Technical and Derivative Analyst, Angel One, the NTPC share price is in a strong uptrend and is now sustaining itself well above its March swing high. Expect an extension of the upmove, and traders should have a buy-on-dip approach. 355–360 is the demand zone, whereas 383–388 is the resistance zone.
