The stock of Caplin Point Laboratories Limited formed a bearish engulfing candlestick pattern on the daily timeframe. The bearish engulfing candlestick pattern is considered to be a bearish reversal pattern and usually occurs at the top of an uptrend. The reversal is further justified with the above 50-day average volume.
Among the momentum indicators, 14-period daily RSI cooled-off after touching the extreme overbought zone of 90, and at present, its reading is 77.44. The RSI is trading below its 9-day average and is in a declining mode, which indicates a further downside momentum. The stochastic has also given a bearish crossover. Moreover, there has been a negative divergence between the daily RSI, daily stochastic, and the stock price movement, suggesting a limited upside.
Going ahead, if the stock sustains below Friday’s session low of Rs 575 and trades convincingly below this level then, there is a high probability of Friday’s high point of Rs 686 becoming a temporary top for the stock.
