Apr 102011

Last week, TCS hit new life time high on Tuesday but by the end of the week the stock closed under the previous high of 1220. The chart below is the weekly chart of TCS showing a 'gravestone doji'  formation suggesting supply is starting to over-power demand. The bottom panel also shows momentum diverging negatively with the price movement.

TCS - Weekly Chart

Drilling down to it's daily chart, it is quite clear that when TCS clocked new highs, there was not any significant volume expansion. The stock was not able to sustain above it's previous high of 1220 for more than a day and has continued to move lower. This price action is looking more like a head-fake rather than a true breakout. Now, if you are a conservative trader, you can wait for the breach of 1125 to book out longs and reverse direction. An aggressive approach would be to turn bearish below last week's low of 1184 with a stop placement above 1220 or 1247.
