Here's how the stock looks on key technical parameters.

Just Dial Limited (JUSTDIAL): The counter has risen over 100 per cent from the September lows of Rs 332 levels and charts suggest that the phenomenal rally is likely to continue. As the counter decisively trades above 200-weekly moving average (WMA) placed at Rs 500 levels and has also broken out above Rs 640 levels, the overall medium-term trend is hints at a move towards Rs 800 levels, as per weekly charts.

Although, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is trading in the overbought condition, i.e. the price has surged due to excessive demand, the price is now showing signs of any weakness yet. Moreover, the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) has conquered the zero line, facilitating an upward momentum. The price direction, therefore, remains up for now.

The immediate support for short-term trading is at Rs 600 levels, which is far from the current price of Rs 673. That said, the support level seems feasible considering the volatility of over 10 per cent that the counter has seen in recent intra-day trades.CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART
