“The $5 trillion market cap for BSE listed companies is a major milestone that reflects the sustained momentum of the Indian stock market. It is important to understand that this landmark has been achieved when the market is almost flat trading in a range. This means the contribution to the up move in market cap has come from the broader market. PSUs have contributed significantly to this achievement," said V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services.

Trade setup for Wednesday

On the Nifty outlook, Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst, LKP Securities, said, "The index remained within the range of 22,400 and 22,600. Strong put writing at 22,400 and 22,500 might provide support to the Nifty. On the higher end, a decisive move above 22,600 might induce a rally towards 22,800 in the near term. Till then the index might continue consolidating as long as it remains within the range of 22,400 to 22,600."

On the Bank Nifty outlook, Kunal Shah, Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst at LKP Securities, said, "The Bank Nifty index failed to surpass the mark of 48,400, where the 20DMA is placed. A break above this level will lead to a fresh move on the upside. The lower-end support is placed at 48,000, where the highest open interest is built up on the put side. The index needs to break these levels decisively on either side to have trending moves in the near term."

Buy or sell stock ideas by experts

Prabhudas Lilladher's Shiju Koothupalakkal, and Choice Broking's Sumeet Bagadia have suggested a total of five buy or sell stocks for today. These stocks are arranged and explained further under the names of the experts.

Sumeet Bagadia's shares to buy

1] Vedanta Ltd: Buy at 491.7, target 515, stop loss 475

The daily chart analysis of Vedanta reveals a promising outlook for the upcoming week, signalling a sustained upward movement. Notably, the stock has formed a significant higher high and higher low pattern, and the recent upward swing has successfully breached the neckline, establishing a new week high for the stock. This breakout suggests the potential for a substantial follow-through upward movement in the stock price.

Adding to the positive momentum, there has been an increase in trading volume, indicating growing market interest. The Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) for short term is 482. And NATIONALUM stock is trading above this level this is a good sign for the stock and it could move higher. VWAP is rising upwards. Furthermore, NATIONALUM is currently trading above its crucial 20-day, 50-day, and 200-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) levels, reinforcing the bullish trend. Given the overall chart pattern, the analysis suggests a favourable long trading opportunity for investors.

Based on the above analysis we recommend buying VEDL in cash at CMP of 491.7 for the target of 515 with a stop loss of 475.

2] Tech Mahindra Ltd: Buy at 1,323.90, target 1,415, stop loss 1,280

Tech Mahindra, a prominent player in the technology sector, has demonstrated resilience by bouncing back from the support level of 1280, which aligns closely with its 20-Day Exponential Moving Average (EMA). Currently trading at 1323.90 per share, the stock has recently broken above the 1320 level, signalling robust strength. This positive sentiment is further reinforced as TECHM trades above its 20, 50, and 200-day moving averages, a clear indication of bullish momentum.

The stock faces a minor resistance at 1345 levels. Sustaining above this resistance could trigger additional upward momentum, paving the way for further gains. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is presently at 64.53 and trending upwards, highlighting increased buying activity and further supporting the bullish outlook.

Given these technical indicators, TECHM presents a compelling investment opportunity. The combination of a strong bounce from support, a significant breakout, and favourable RSI readings makes it an attractive prospect for investors looking to capitalize on its upward trajectory.

Investors should be cautious and keep a watch on the stock if it falls below 1280, as this could negate the positive outlook. A short-term target of 1415 is achievable.
