Day trading guide for stock market today
Speaking on intraday trading strategy in regard to Nifty today; Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, “The short term trend of Nifty continues to be negative. The placement of important support for NSE Nifty is around 16,800 levels and a formation of weekly and daily pattern indicate a probability of an upside bounce from the lows in the next 1-2 sessions. Confirmation of reversal pattern at the lows could signal a quantum of upside bounce in the market.”
Echoing with Nagraj Shetti’s views; Ruchit Jain, Lead Research, 5paisa.com said, “Nifty has completed its 50 per cent retracement of the previous up move during last week around 16,825 levels, but Bank Nifty was yet to correct up to this retracement mark of its previous upside move. Monday’s gap down completed the 50 per cent retracement of this index too and thereafter we witnessed positive momentum in the same. Now, our markets have ended above the important support of 16,825 and if this support is breached, then it opens up for a continuation of the correction towards 16,400 levels. On the flipside, if the strength in the banks continues and the Nifty does not break this support, then a pullback move towards 17,100 to 17,150 could be seen.”
Unveiling day trading strategy for stock market today; Ruchit Jain of 5paisa.com said, “Considering the large move in the global market, our markets could continue to follow the global cues and hence, traders should keep a close watch on the same. The INDIA VIX also rallied today and closed above 21 which is a sign of cautiousness. Traders should avoid aggressive positions in such volatility and focus more on intraday trades rather than taking overnight risks.”
