The stock of Century Plyboards (India) plummeted 8 per cent with an above average volume on Wednesday, breaking below a key support level of ₹300. This decline provides an opportunity for short-term traders to sell the stock at current levels. After a medium-term uptrend, the stock encountered a key resistance at around ₹360 in January this year. This resistance level capped the stock’s rally in April. The stock reversed direction and has been in a short-term downtrend since then.

While trending down, the stock conclusively breached its key supports at ₹330 and the 50-day moving average. On Wednesday, the stock tumbled breaking below a key medium-term support as well as its 200-DMA.
