In news from the auto sector, Maruti Suzuki was among the top buzzing stocks today.

Shares of the country's largest car maker Maruti Suzuki surged over 5% to hit an intraday high of Rs 7,299 per share on the BSE today, a day after it undertook price hikes for its vehicles.

Maruti Suzuki, will increase car prices in the July-September quarter to offset input price hikes.

Over the past year, the cost of the company's vehicles continues to be adversely impacted due to increase in various input costs. Hence, it has become imperative for the company to pass on some impact of additional cost to customers through a price rise. The price rise has been planned in quarter 2 and the increase shall vary for different models', Maruti Suzuki said in a statement.

This will be the second round of price increase by the Delhi-based company in this financial year.

The maker of Swift and Baleno had raised prices by around 1.6% in the April-June quarter. The price was raised to mitigate the jump in input costs.

Apart from that, the country's largest carmaker reported a 71% decline in total sales to 46,555 units in May as compared to 1.6 lakh units in April as a spike in Covid-19 cases and lockdowns across various states hit dispatches.

The company said its domestic dispatches to dealers last month stood at 35,293 units, down 75% from 1.4 lakh units in April.

The auto major had also shut production from May 1 through May 16 so as to divert oxygen from industrial use for medical purposes.

Speaking of stocks, here's a pattern that if you see, you must sell your position. After all, exits are more important than entries.

In the chart below, we can see the head and shoulder pattern - the stock goes up, makes a high, falls a little bit, goes up to a higher high, does not make a higher low, rallies again, fails to make a new high, and then starts to break down.

This usually happens in a situation where a stock or index has typically been in a bull trend for a while. Spotting this correctly can help you save money.
