RIL share price today has strong support placed at 2,250 apiece levels, say stock market experts.

Stock market today: Shares of Reliance Industries Ltd or RIL have witnessed huge buying since early morning deals on Friday session. Reliance share price today opened with upside gap and went on to hit intraday high of 2,322 apiece levels on NSE, logging more than 3.75 per cent intraday rise during the weekend deals. According to stock market experts, this rise in Reliance shares can be attributed to the NCLT approval to demerger of RIL and new NBFC — Reliance Strategic Investments Ltd, which is expected to be rebranded as Jio Financial Services — in 1:1 ratio after the take over. Reliance has informed Indian bourses about the NCLT approval and the company board meeting has been fixed on 2nd May 2023 in this regard.

Speaking on the reason for rally Reliance share price today, Ravi Singhal, CEO at GCL Broking said, "Reliance share price has been ascending today after the NCLT approval to RIL for demerger of shares in 1:1 ratio. The NCLT has approved allocation of one Reliance' new NBFC share against one Reliance shares to each shareholders of the RIL. This has worked as short term positive sentiment from fundamental perspective."

Reliance share price outlook

In suggestion to Reliance shareholders after this strong rally, Ravi Singhal of GCL Broking said, "Reliance shareholders can hold the stock with stop loss at 2,275 apiece levels as this large-cap Sensex heavy weight may ascend to the tune of 2,340 to 2,345 apiece levels in near term. However, for those who have long term perspective, my suggestion is to hold the stock maintaining stop loss at 2,250 apiece levels."

Advising fresh entry in Reliance shares, Sumeet Bagadia, Executive Director at Choice Broking said, "Reliance share price is bouncing back from its lows. One can buy and hold the stock at current levels and keep on accumulating on every big dip maintaining strict stop loss at 2,250 apiece levels. In near term, Reliance share price may go up to 2,400 apiece levels. However, the stock may given breakout at 2,450 apiece levels and go up to 2,600 apiece levels. After breakout, those who have long term perspective, can upgrade their trailing stop loss at 2,400 apiece levels.
