In the past one week, the market price of BSE has rallied 35 per cent after the company fixed March 22, 2022, as the record date for the purpose of determining the names of shareholders who shall be entitled for allotment of bonus equity shares in the ratio of 2 new fully paid-up equity shares of Rs 2 each for every 1 fully paid-up equity share held by the shareholders of the company.

The board of directors of BSE on February 8, 2022 had approved issue of bonus shares in the ratio of 2:1.

For October-December quarter (Q3FY22), BSE had reported 86 per cent year-on-year (YoY) jump in its consolidated net profit to Rs 58.6 crore. The company’s revenues from operations grew 60 per cent YoY to Rs 192.7 crore during the quarter. The strong growth was driven by a 44 per cent jump in average daily turnover (ADTV) in the equity cash segment to Rs 5,217 crore. The ADTV for the equity derivatives and currency derivatives segments rose 23 per cent to Rs 2.47 trillion and 29 per cent to Rs 27,124 crore, respectively.

Technical View Key Support: Rs 2,650
The stock has rebounded strongly after testing support at the lower-end of the Bollinger Band on daily charts, placed at Rs 1,860-odd levels. The announcement of record date for the proposed bonus issue further fueled the buying momentum, with the stock jumping as much as 28 per cent in just two trading sessions.
The price-to-moving averages action, coupled with key momentum oscillators, are clearly in favour of the bulls. The only sour point is that the RSI has entered overbought territory and quotes fairly above the 70-mark.
The stock is currently trading in an unchartered territory, hence there are no historic resistance to watch out. Instead, traders should focus on the Rs 2,650 level which is its immediate support level. Sustained trade below this level can warrant a correction towards Rs 2,350.
