COLPAL technical analysis chart

Oscillator RSI and CMO are close to the over-sold territory. The stock is trading in the middle of a narrowing Bollinger band giving no directional bias.

The MACD line has just penetrated the signal line in a bullish manner. However, Long-term and short-term GMMA lines can be seen inverted in a bearish manner given the downward movement of the stock.

COLPAL correlation chart

COLPAL’s average correlation with the Nifty is +0.26 which is positive but weak. The scrip will not be replicating movement of Nifty closely. [stockquote]NIFTYBEES[/stockquote]

COLPAL volatility chart

COLPAL has a historical volatility in the range of 0.3 to 0.7. The scrip’s volatility is currently in the lower end of the range and hence not a concern for the traders.

Given these technicals, we suggest a short-term buy. For the long-term we suggest to take a call based upon the expansion of the long-term GMMA lines. However trailing stop-losses will be of help in case sudden trend-reversal were to take place.
