Day trading stocks for today

On intraday stocks for today, stock market experts — Sumeet Bagadia, Executive Director at Choice Broking; Anuj Gupta, Vice President — Research at IIFL Securities, Ganesh Dongre, Senior Manager — Technical Research at Anand Rathi and Rajesh Bhosale, Technical Analyst at Angel One — recommended six stocks to buy today.

Sumeet Bagadia's intraday stocks for today

1] Sun Pharma: Buy in cash @ 1001, SL 980, TGT 1043.

Sun Pharma share is presently trading at 1001, having recently broken out from its previous range of 981 to 995 that persisted for a week. This breakout signifies a potential shift in the stock's price dynamics, making it an intriguing investment prospect.

In addition, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is trending upward and appears to be on the verge of a positive crossover, indicating a potential increase in buying pressure. Moreover, Sun Pharma's price is currently positioned above its 20-50-100-200 Exponential Moving Averages (EMA), suggesting underlying strength in the stock.

The Bollinger Band is also displaying expansion, indicating an increase in volatility and potential upward momentum. Taking all these factors into consideration, it is our professional opinion that Sun Pharma presents a favourable buying opportunity at the current price of 1001, with a target price of 1043. It is important to note that our views would be invalidated if the stock were to fall below the 980 level.

2] Tech Mahindra or TechM: Buy in cash @ 1093.60, SL 1060 TGT 1150.

Tech Mahindra share has displayed a consolidation since last 4 days. The stock is currently trading at 1093.60 levels. The stock is trading above its crucial moving averages of 20, 50, and 100, indicating a bullish sentiment. A minor resistance at 1101 levels, when once taken out, could act as a catalyst for further upward movement. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is currently at 54 and trending upwards, reflecting growing buying interest. This makes TECHM an attractive buy.

However, caution is advised, with a close eye on the stock falling below 1060, as it could negate the positive outlook. A short-term target of 1150 is possible.
