Even on monthly chart H&S formation is there , I assume LIC Housing Finance will breakdown :thinking:

I have based my assumptions (LICHF not breaking down despite H&S forming) on the following facts :

  1. Forthcoming lic ipo
  2. P/B less than one
  3. Stock being around major multi year support zone (since Dec 2014, It breached this level only once during
    covid fall in Feb 2020 but recovered back in Jan 2021).
    BTW, today its price went up about 1% on 64% delivery volume (higher than ususal).

But never know, I may be wrong and looking only on the positives because I took long position on LICHF at these levels. Would appreciate your inputs. :slightly_smiling_face:

Well considering the condition of the present Stock market ,
1.FIIs selling continuously , in-fact their selling is exceeded buying of DIIs this happens normally between December& January months +World markets are also falling, and Nifty 50 is in a downtrend, this rub off effect will be there on LIC Housing Fiancee.
2.Chartically LIC Housing is just hovering around its nearest support level of 368 & below pivot level of 389, not able to close above it. for me its just a bounce. , at best LIC Housing can be , in a range bound , i assume considering the present market condition LIC Housing will be breakdown further , its just my point of view , i may be wrong, its only the Market to prove.

LIC HSGF broke its support & Trend-line of 368 level , i will be a buyer near 200 to 240 level
