After rising about half a per cent last week, domestic market benchmark Nifty 50 fell over half a per cent in intraday trade on Monday, March 11, with some of the banking heavyweights, including HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and SBI, among the top drags.

The Nifty 50 formed a small bullish candle last week and technical experts expect the benchmark index to trade in a range this week.

According to Axis Securities, if the Nifty 50 crosses and sustains above the 22,600 level, it would witness buying, leading the index towards the 22,800-22,900 levels. However, if the index breaks below the 22,400 level, it would witness selling, taking the index towards the 22,300-22,200 range.

For the week, Axis Securities expects the Nifty 50 to trade in the range of 22,900-22,200 with a positive bias.

The market will react to global cues and macro numbers in the near term and there could be bouts of volatility due to this. Experts recommend buying technically and fundamentally sound stocks at the current juncture. Based on the recommendations of several experts, below are 10 stocks that one can consider buying for the next three to four weeks. Take a look:

ITC | Last traded price (LTP): 413.35 | Buying range: 405-415 | Target price: 451 | Stop loss: 389 | Upside potential: 9%

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

In the previous trading session, a notable buying interest was observed 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 price zone of 400-416. 

This zone also coincides with the 0.382 per cent retracement level of a price swing between January 2023 and July 2023.

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

From a technical perspective, the stock formed a bullish bat pattern on the daily chart within the price range of 1,350-1,415 which corresponds to a 0.382 per cent retracement level of a price swing that occurred between May 18, 2020, and August 1, 2022, on a weekly scale.
