The 52-week low NSE price of any actively traded security on the National Stock Exchange represents the lowest price over the previous year (i.e. the trailing 52-week period). The 52-week low NSE price of the stock is used as a benchmark by investors to analyse the price of a stock and its future potential. When the price approaches the 52-week low, the buyers and sellers react differently based on their holding position and interpretation. A holder of stocks whose price is nearing the 52-week low on NSE may think of selling them immediately in fear of losing more funds.
Another holder with a long-term investment horizon may interpret that the fall is temporary. He may thus choose to buy more stocks at a price nearing the 52-week low NSE, aiming to gain more in the future if he has a positive outlook about the stock price. The buyers looking for stocks to invest in may choose to buy the 52-week low stock assuming that the stocks are currently undervalued and thus make a good buy. In this case, you can say that the stock price is likely to establish a downward trend with a price lower than the previously recorded 52-week low.
