The 3.5 per cent stake sale included 1.75 per cent set as a base offer and 1.75 per cent as an additional option. This offer will open from March 23 to March 24, 2023. The floor price for the OFS was set at Rs 2,450 per equity share, which was at a discount of 6.7 per cent to the previous closing price.

technical visualization


Bias: Negative


Target: Rs 2,366


Support: Rs 2,475


Resistance: Rs 2,566, Rs 2,588, Rs 2,695


After staying above the 20-DMA (Daily Moving Average) for more than a month, HAL has once again slipped below the short-term moving average in the last four trading sessions.


Currently, the stock is trading below the 20-, 50- and 100-DMAs at Rs 2,695, Rs 2,566 and Rs 2,588 respectively. Hence, till the time the stock fails to cross these hurdles, the near term bias is likely to remain negative.


On the downside, the daily chart indicates that the stock has found support near the lower end of the Bollinger Bands at Rs 2,475, below which the stock may test its 200-DMA at the Rs 2,366-odd level.
