In news from the engineering sector, Larsen & Toubro was among the top buzzing stocks today.

Construction major Larsen & Toubro (L&T) and ReNew Power (ReNew) have agreed to tap the emerging green hydrogen business in India.

The companies will jointly develop, own, execute and operate green hydrogen projects in India.

Green Hydrogen can enable the world to meet its net zero emissions targets.

S N Subrahmanyan, chief executive officer and managing director of Larsen & Toubro, said the partnership is a significant milestone in the journey towards building a green energy portfolio for L&T.

It is anticipated that green hydrogen demand in India for applications such as refineries, fertilisers and city gas grids will grow up to 2 million tonne per annum by 2030 in line with the nation's green hydrogen mission. This would call for investments upward of US$60 bn.

Sumant Sinha, chairman and chief executive officer at Gurgaon-based ReNew, said,

  • Green hydrogen will be a key driver of the transition to cleaner sources of energy. I expect this partnership to set new benchmarks in the Indian renewable energy space and look forward to working together with L&T.

Many countries, including India (through its national hydrogen mission), have announced specific policy interventions to push for the widespread adoption of green hydrogen.

L&T share price ended the day up by 0.4% on the BSE.

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.

If you're interested in trading and want to know how you can use this pattern, you can read about it in one of the editions of Profit Hunter here: It's When You Sell that Counts
