Nifty 50 declined about a per cent in intraday trade on Monday, February 12, on losses led by shares of select heavyweights, including Reliance Industries, ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, Hero MotoCorp and Coal India.

Nifty declined 0.3 per cent in the previous week and formed a "Doji" candlestick formation on the weekly chart, indicating indecisiveness among market participants.

According to Axis Securities, the chart pattern suggests that if Nifty crosses and sustains above the 22,000 level, it would witness buying, leading the index towards 22,150-22,300 levels. However, if the index breaks below the 21,600 level, it would witness selling, taking the index towards 21,500-21,300.

"The weekly strength indicator RSI (relative strength index) is moving downwards and is quoting below its reference line, indicating a negative bias. For the week, we expect Nifty to trade in the range of 22,200-21,500 with mixed bias," said Axis Securities.

The market may experience some volatility in the near term. Experts recommend buying technically and fundamentally sound stocks at the current juncture. 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:

Dr Reddy's Laboratories | Target price: 6,675 | Stop loss: 5,850

The past few months have been good for pharma stocks since the Nifty Pharma index surged over 20 per cent from the bottom of 14,600. 

Although most of the heavyweight pharma participated in this rally Dr Reddy's Laboratories has been consolidating for many weeks. 

The stock has now confirmed a breakout which resembles a bullish cup and handle pattern. 

"Traders are advised to buy Dr Reddy's Laboratories in the range of 6,100-6,200 with a stop loss of 5,850 on a closing basis for an upside target of 6,675," said Patel.

Aether Industries | Target price: 975 | Stop loss: 810

For a month or so, this counter gained massive momentum from the retracement levels of its previous up move (0.786 per cent), thus making it a lucrative buy. 

Time and price retracement are falling at the same length, which is a strong indication of bottoming out. (Time retracement is 0.382 per cent and price retracement is 0.786 per cent). 

On the indicator front, the weekly RSI has formed an impulsive structure near the 30 level, which further confirms our bullish stance on the counter. 

"One can buy the stock in the zone of 855-870 for a target of 975 and a stop loss of 810 on a daily closing basis," said Patel.

Rain Industries | Target price: 220 | Stop loss: 160

For the last two months or so, this counter has been consolidating between 145 and 155. 

Recently, it gave a breakout from the said range on a weekly closing basis, which is looking lucrative. 

It has also formed a bullish Gartley pattern which is 1.38 years old, thus making it more reliable. 

Also, it has violated a couple of trendlines. The best part about this bullish reversal is that every bottom has bought with huge volume bars, which indicates bullish bias in the counter. 

On the indicator front, the weekly RSI has given a trendline violation, which further affirms our bullish stance on the counter. 

"We advise traders and investors to go long in the range of 175-185 with an upside target of 220, and the stop loss should be placed at 160 on a daily close basis," Patel said.

Note: The Gartley pattern is a harmonic chart pattern, based on Fibonacci numbers and ratios, which help traders, identify reaction highs and lows
