The Indian stock market extended its rally for a fourth straight session and finished with decent gains after recovering from daily lows on Thursday following the RBI meeting.

The broad market indices increased more than the Nifty as the advance decrease ratio was positive at 2.01:1.
Market analysis for next week
Sumeet Bagadia, Executive Director of Choice Broking, believes the market is in an uptrend that could continue in the short term following RBI’s decision to hold rates. Choice Broking’s Sumeet Bagadia said the Nifty is between 17,300 and 18,000 today, while the Nifty Bank Index is between 40,500 and 41,700. The technical expert advised the investors to preserve buy-on dips until the declined levels on both indices were managed.
Stocks to purchase
For buying or selling stocks to watch at the Indian Stock Exchange’s opening on Monday, Sumeet Bagadia recommended buying three stocks next week, and three stocks to buy or sell are DLF, IGL, and Sun Pharma.
The price persists above ₹1,000, which is o.50% of the Fibonacci retrenchment. So, based on the above technical structure, you can open a long position on CMP ₹1012. But to be on the safer side, a better entry range would be at levels near ₹1000-1005. A close and hold above ₹1020 will lead to ₹1060-1070 levels in the coming days. SL can be kept at ₹975.
In the ₹365-360 range, the DLF share price has stable support. The stock price currently stands at ₹381. Charts show a slight resistance near the ₹383 level. After breaking the above resistance, the stock could be closer to its price target of ₹410 and above. The stock has formed a bullish candlestick on the weekly chart, signaling its strength. The RSI indicator is also approaching 54, indicating that the stock room has room for further growth.
The stock is currently trading at a 52-week high since September 2022. IGL’s share price has faced major resistance in the ₹445-455 range.
According to the above technical analysis, it is recommended to buy IGL down. Traders buying at the CMP of ₹462.4 should add shares up to the ₹450 level.
