ICICI Bank, Axis Bank, and SBI have already made their rally, and now is the chance for HDFC Bank. It has broken the 1477 resistance and closed near a major long-term resistance trendline. It has many hurdles above 1500 levels. But if it makes a weekly close above 1530, we can expect more momentum.
