Given this, is it a good idea to buy travel-related stocks now? Here's what charts say.
Thomas Cook (India )(Thomascook):
The weekly chart shows a consolidation breakout above Rs 40, indicating a positive outlook from a medium-term scale. Now, the immediate resistance comes at Rs 60 and if that resistance gets conquered, the upside bias may see a rally towards Rs 80, which is its 200-weekly moving average (WMA). The sustainability above the 100-WMA, currently placed at Rs 53 levels, will decide if the stock regains positive momentum. CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART
