Eclerx faced resistance from the upper channel line and likely to remain weak in the near term. Below 1095, the weakness to get further extended and probable support comes at 1025 and then at 955 level at the convergence of lower channel line and Kijun Sen line. Technical parameters look neutral to positive in the weekly chart.
The company has been expecting to improve the revenues going ahead due to revival in demand and also receding supply side challenges. A few deal wins include a Nordic banking client, food business client and higher wins from existing clients. In addition, the company expects CLX business to see improvement in coming quarters. However, we expect the company to see an improved trajectory led by higher exposure to banking, telecom and hi-tech clients (70% of topline) and revival in growth.
