Tata chemical consolidated for more than a year between 653 and 789 and then broke down in second week of Oct-18. The stock made the highs around 788 three times. That the stock broke the support at 653 was the first indication of weakness.In the process the stock made a new low at the Fibonacci confluence zone of 616-627. The stock then retraced the fall all the way to 724 levels. The 724 level is the 61.8 % of the fall from the highs. Thus in the process the stock made a lower high and is back to an important support today. The stock has a Fibonacci confluence support at 653-568 and also a trend line support in the same zone. Since the stock could not go beyond the 61.8% of the fall it confirmed that the stock was turning bearish. The RSI is now breaking the 40 zone and that again means weakness. A break of the 653 levels on a weekly basis will open the door to 616 and then 570 both being Fibonacci confluence zone and hence a good support for the stock. The stock is indicating that the trend of the stock is turning down and hence any rallies in the counter should be utilized to exit.
