Day trading guide for Friday: 5 stocks to buy today — December 9

Equity benchmark Sensex ended four days of losses on Thursday, buoyed by gains in select banking and auto counters. The BSE Sensex closed 160 points higher at 62,570. The NSE Nifty advanced 48.8 points to settle at 18,609. All the major sectoral indexes, barring Nifty IT rose. Nifty Bank touched new high on Thursday on the back of sharp rally in PSU stocks.

“Despite the global worry about Fed aggressive rate hike next week and recessionary fears, domestic market hailed the landslide victory for BJP in Gujarat. Sentiments which had got dented due to hawkish view of RBI on inflation, got a boost from the election outcome. Sentiments further got supported with fall in oil price to nearly 1-year low to below $80/bbl, strong economic data and favourable government policies,” said iddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research, Motilal Oswal.

“The positive chart pattern like higher tops and bottoms is still active and we expect Nifty to bounce back from the support 18450 levels. If the lower support gets broken, then the market could test another lower base of around 18150 levels. Immediate resistance is placed at 18650 levels,” said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

“Nifty witnessed a lacklustre trading session as the index failed to give any directional move. For any meaningful directional move Nifty needs to go below 18,500 decisively or above 18,700 on a sustain basis. Support below 18,500, is pegged at 18,350/18,200. On the other hand, above 18,700, resistance is visible at 18,900,” said Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities.
