IRB Infrastructure: Rs 195-192 would act as a key supports
On the daily and weekly charts, the stock is consistently facing selling pressure at higher levels. After a short-term correction, the stock is consistently trading below the 200, 50, and 20-Day SMA (Simple Moving Average) which is negative.

On the flip side, a fresh correction wave is possible if the stock succeeds to trade below Rs 192. A close below this crucial support could take the stock towards Rs 185-180 levels.
