Last week, equity benchmark Nifty 50 ended over 2 per cent lower as concerns over the rich valuation of the market and uncertainty around the interest rate trajectory in the US kept investors nervous.

Domestic market sentiment continues to be cautious ahead of the US Federal Reserve outcome on Wednesday. The Fed is expected to keep rates unchanged but the market's focus would be on what the central bank thinks about inflation and growth.

"The week ahead, the global central bank’s monetary policy decision will get investors’ attention. The US Fed, Bank of Japan, and Bank of England will unveil their rate decisions. There is uncertainty over Fed rate cuts due to an increase in the US unemployment rate and higher than expected US inflation," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services.

Based on the recommendations of several experts, below are 12 stocks that one can consider buying for the next three to four weeks. Take a look:

Jigar S. Patel, Senior Manager of Equity Research at Anand Rathi Share and Stock Brokers

ITC | LTP: 419.10 | Target price: 475 | Stop loss: 390 | Upside potential: 13%

After reaching the level near 475 on January 4, 2024, ITC experienced a significant decline of approximately 75 points, or nearly 16 per cent. 

However, in the subsequent 18 trading sessions, ITC showed stability by avoiding further declines, consolidating within a range of 400-416. 

In the previous trading session, there was notable buying interest at lower levels, accompanied by substantial trading volume. 

From a technical standpoint, there is the formation of a bullish AB=CD pattern on the daily chart of ITC within the zone of 400-416. 

Interestingly, this zone also coincides with the 0.382 per cent retracement level of a price swing that occurred between January 2023 and July 2023. 

Additionally, it formed a complex structure on the daily Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator, resembling a 'W' shape below the 30 level, which suggests a potentially lucrative buying opportunity.

"One can buy the stock in the range of 415-425 with an upside target of 475 and a stop loss should be placed near 390 on a daily close basis," said Patel.

Britannia Industries | LTP: 4,974.20 | Target price: 5,250 | Stop loss: 4,790 | Upside potential: 6%

Over the past couple of months, Britannia Industries has stabilised around the 4,800 level, forming a prolonged support base. 

This level coincides with the 200-day exponential moving average (DEMA) and represents a 50 per cent retracement of its previous upward movement from November 2023 to December 2023, as depicted in the provided chart. 

Additionally, a bullish AB=CD pattern has emerged near the 4,800 level, further confirming positive market sentiment. 

The daily stochastic indicator indicates a bullish divergence, suggesting a favourable outlook for the stock. 

"Investors may consider initiating buy positions within the range of 4,950-4,980, targeting an upside objective of 5,250, with a stop loss set at 4,790 on a daily closing basis," Patel said.

Aegis Logistics | LTP: 381.25 | Target price: 430 | Stop loss: 355 | Upside potential: 13%

The stock has found support at the 200-day exponential moving average (DEMA). 

On the hourly chart, a bullish bat pattern was formed in the range of 360-370 levels, coinciding with the vicinity of the 200 DEMA. 

On the indicator front, the hourly Relative Strength Index (RSI) has displayed a complex structure near the oversold zone, indicating a bullish stance.

"Given these technical indicators, investors may consider buying in the zone of 375-385, with an upside target set at 430. A prudent stop-loss strategy would involve placing it near 355 on a daily closing basis," Patel said.

Gujarat State Fertilizers & Chemicals (GSFC) | LTP: 208.65 | Target price: 254 | Stop loss: 190
