BONUS – PRICE ACTION NOTES: Look at the last candle on the chart and look at the volumes. I have outlined both in black.
Here is what we see:
- Abnormal volumes were traded in Mahindra CIE for the week ended 6-7-18.
- The volumes were absorbed, and as you can see, the candle has developed a very long wick at the end. This implies that all selling was absorbed and the stock was off the lows by a wide margin.
- This tells us that someone has picked up a large quantity of Mahindra CIE in this last week, and there may be something up in the stock.
- Based on this price action analysis, I would put Mahindra CIE on my watchlist.
