Here is a look at what analysts said about the prospects of both metal stocks.

Tata Steel

Aditya Gaggar, Director of Progressive Shares expects the stock to hit the Rs 214 mark.

“In March, metal giant Tata Steel gave a breakout from the Rounding Bottom Formation which was confirmed with a trendline breakout in RSI and an upsurge in volume. Trend following indicator MACD has already given a positive crossover and a reading of 25 in ADX further confirms the presence of the strong uptrend. As per the pattern breakout, the target is Rs 214, said Gaggar.

Gaurav Bissa, VP, InCred Equities said, “Tata Steel has one of the best performing large cap stocks in recent times. It witnessed some consolidation after a stupendous rise from Rs 25 levels since 2020. This resulted in formation of a bullish pennant pattern which is a continuation pattern in nature. Tata steel has confirmed a breakout on the monthly charts which can propel it towards Rs 200 levels in the medium term. It has made a small swing high on weekly charts implying it can move towards Rs 175 till it holds Rs 158 levels in the near term.”

Abhijeet from Tips2Trades said, “Tata Steel stock price looks bullish on the daily charts with strong support at Rs 156. A daily close above the resistance of Rs 167 could lead to a target of Rs 181 in the near term.”

Shiju Koothupalakkal – Technical Research Analyst, Prabhudas Lilladher said, “The stock has been in a strong rally since last more than one year making new highs and currently also breaching the previous peak level of Rs 159 has indicated a clear breakout to enter a new territory with bias maintained strong. It has been trading above the important 50EMA moving average zone and with near-term support maintained near Rs 146 levels, we anticipate the stock to rally towards its next higher targets of Rs 184 and Rs 195 levels, respectively.”

JSW Steel

Rahul Ghose, CEO, Hedged.in said, “The JSW steel counter has been a slow and steady uptrend for the last two years since 2022 June. The stock in the recent past has had difficulty crossing the 850 mark which is its near term resistance . The plus point in the current price structure of the chart is that the stock is currently trying to form a conventional technical ‘Inverse head and shoulder pattern’. This is a bullish pattern which coincidentally coincides with this Rs 850 level. One can initiate a long on the stock once prices close above the Rs 850 mark with a bullish candle keeping a stop loss at Rs 825.”

Abhijeet from Tips2Trades said, “JSW Steel stock price looks bullish on the daily charts with strong support at Rs 807. A daily close above resistance of Rs 845 could lead to a target of Rs 888 in the near term.”

Riyank Arora Technical Analyst at Mehta Equities said, “The stock is consolidating well in its triangular consolidation formation. According to the weekly charts, the breakout level is placed at the Rs 842.50 mark and a minor support lies near Rs 815, below which the next major support is placed at the Rs 785 mark. Overall, the trend looks positive and the stock should eventually head towards Rs 850 and Rs 880 after it has given a breakout above that Rs 842.50 level. A strict stop loss should be kept at Rs 785 for all the positional trades.”
