The technical analysts have mix views on MMTC’s stock performance and outlook. Some of them suggest booking profits at the current levels, while others believe that the stock has more room to grow. Some of them also point out that the stock faces a strong resistance level on the weekly chart, which needs to be breached for further upside potential.

Book Profits at Current Levels

AR Ramachandran from Tips2trades said that MMTC’s stock is bullish but also very overbought on the daily charts, with the next resistance at Rs 68.3. He advised investors to book profits at the current levels, as a close below the support of Rs 60 could lead to a target of Rs 44 in the near term.

Expect More Upside

Market expert Ravi Singh said that MMTC’s stock is looking strong on technical terms and momentum indicators are suggesting a strong uptrend in the counter. He said that this trend is likely to continue in the coming weeks and that the stock may touch Rs 70 level in the near future.

Watch Out for Weekly Resistance

Kush Ghodasara, independent market expert, CMT, said that MMTC’s stock has recently broken out from a consolidation pattern on the daily chart with substantial trading volumes. However, he said that a major challenge lies on the weekly chart, where a steadfast resistance at Rs 63 has held since 2014. He said that while momentum indicators are favorable, confirmation depends on a weekly close above Rs 63. He suggested avoiding new positions and maintaining existing ones with a trailing stop-loss at Rs 60.80.
