Day trading guide for stock market today
Speaking on intraday trading strategy in regard to Nifty today; Ruchit Jain, Lead Research, 5paisa.com said, “Nifty had formed an ‘Inside Bar’ reversal pattern on Wednesday and a move above 17,275 gave a confirmation of trend reversal. Thus the Nifty resumed its uptrend post completion of a corrective phase and the broader markets too participated in the up move throughout the session. Along with the price up move, certain oscillators are also indicating a positive momentum and hence we expect a continuation of the trend in the short term. All the sectoral indices (except media) ended in the green and most of them witnessed gains of 1-2 percent. With the price up move in last couple of sessions, the support base for Nifty has moved higher and 17,270 will now be seen as immediate support. Traders should look for buying opportunities in intraday declines and trade with a positive bias. On the higher side, the potential near term targets are seen around 17,470 and 17,620.”
Echoing with Ruchit Jain’s views; Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities said, “The short term trend of Nifty continuous to be positive. A sustainable move above the immediate resistance of 17,450 to 17,500 levels could open the next upside levels of around 17,800 to 18,000 levels in the near term for Nifty.”
