Stock market today: Trade setup for Nifty 50 to Budget 2024, five stocks to buy

Stock market today: After showing positive movement in the first four sessions last week, the Indian stock market slipped into the profit-booking zone on Friday. The Nifty 50 index went off 33 points and closed at 24,010, whereas the BSE Sensex shed 210 points and finished at 79,032. The Bank Nifty index ended 469 points lower at 52,342. However, the broad market outperformed the frontline indices and finished positively. The small-cap index ended 0.56 percent higher while the mid-cap index finished 0.41 percent higher on the previous session.

Trade setup for Monday

On the outlook for Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, said, “The near-term uptrend status of Nifty remains intact. Having moved up sharply, Nifty is currently facing hurdles at the resistance of 24000-24100 levels. Any dip from here is likely to be a buying opportunity. Immediate support is at 23,800 levels.”

On the outlook for Bank Nifty today, Hrishikesh Yedve, AVP Technical and Derivatives Research at Asit C Mehta, said, “Bank Nifty opened with a gap-up but failed to sustain higher levels, resulting in profit booking. Finally, the index settled the day on a negative note at 52,342. From a technical standpoint, the index has formed a bearish candle near trend line resistance. Thus, for the short term, 53,200 will act as a hurdle for Bank Nifty. If the index sustains above the 53,200 levels, then the rally could extend towards 54,000.”

On triggers that may dictate the Indian stock market today, Siddhartha Khemka, Senior Group VP & Head of Research — Broking & Distribution at Motilal Oswal, said, “Nifty and Sensex have crossed historic milestones with both the indices making fresh highs of 24174 and 79671 levels respectively. We expect this positive momentum to continue steadily with stock-specific action. However, the release of economic data points next week would keep the market volatile a little. The sector like Auto is expected to be in the limelight as OEMs would release their monthly auto Sales number.”

Budget 2024 in focus

Advising investors to remain vigilant about the developments regarding the Union Budget 2024, Mahavir Lunawat, Managing Director at Pantomath Capital Advisors, said, “In pre-budget consultations, economists urged Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman to prioritize capital spending for economic expansion, maintain fiscal discipline, and mitigate inflation risks associated with indiscriminate subsidies. Industry bodies like CII and PHDCCI advocated for tax incentives, increased capital expenditure, and targeted reforms such as expanding PLI schemes and addressing food inflation through initiatives like FIRST. The agriculture and MSME sectors stressed the need for subsidy rationalization, bolstered infrastructure investment, and supportive policies for exports and startups. The budget is expected to focus on these priorities, likely introducing measures such as subsidy reforms, infrastructure enhancements, MSME incentives, and tax adjustments aimed at fostering economic growth, job creation, and bolstering India’s economic resilience on the global stage.”
