The process of accumulation and distribution are extremely important in identifying the tops and bottoms, be it in case of an index or in a particular stock.

To add to the same, in the last 6 trading sessions, when the stock performed better and gained nearly 15% from the bottoms, the volume just did not back this rally.
The falling volume indicates that there is a weakness in the stock.
Adding to the same is the loss of momentum on scare volumes witnessed in the last two days.
The formation of the doji on the chart, however, has raised a question mark.
If the high of this doji be breached tomorrow and the stock closes above today’s close then we can expect the rally to continue.
