Home / Markets / Stock Markets /  Day trading guide for Monday: 7 stocks to buy today — 2nd May

Benchmark BSE Sensex plunged by 460 points on Friday due to profit booking in banking, IT, and energy shares in the pre-close session. The Nifty 50 index was down 0.8% at 17,102 at close, and the BSE Sensex fell 0.8% to 57,060.

The benchmark indexes have lost more than 2% in April, hurt by weak earnings from domestic technology firms, fears over the fallout of the Ukraine war, surging inflation and strong policy tightening signals from the Fed.

“The pattern of one day up and down continued in the market within a broad high low range of 17400-16800 levels. The sharp intraday downward reversal of Friday from near upper range could signal probability of Nifty revisiting the lower range of 16900-16800 levels by next week. The possibility of sharp downside breakout of the said range and also a significant lower support of 16800 is getting higher in the near term," said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.
