Wave Analysis:
As discussed in the previous update of 31st January 2014, “In short, as long as 108 is intact on upside and prices persist within the falling red channel our bias remains negative in this stock and prices can move lower towards the next support of 100 / 99”. BANG ON!!
Hindalco moved precisely as expected. Prices sustained below the strong resistance of 108, sustained within the downward sloping red channel and achieved both the targets of 100/99. After achieving the target, prices moved lower below 61.8% retracement level and closed on lower note since 3 trading sessions.
