Intraday trading strategy for Wednesday

Vaishali Parekh, Vice President — Technical Research at Prabhudas Lilladher believes that Nifty has been trading in 17,650 to 17,800 range. Prabhudas Lilladher expert said that Nifty needs to breach 17,800 hurdle for creating a decisive conviction about the market trend. On stocks to buy today, Vaishali Parekh of Prabhudas Lilladher recommended three intraday stocks for today and those three day trading stocks are IRB Infra, Jindal Steel and Cochin Shipyard.

"Nifty once again witnessed a failed attempt to breach the crucial barrier zone of 17800 levels and slipped thereafter to touch the low near 17650 zone and with some volatility closed near 17700 levels. The index has been consolidating between the range of 17800 and 17650 levels for quite some time and as said earlier would need a decisive breach above 17800 to establish some conviction and clarity for further rise," said Parekh.

Vaishali Parekh of Prabhudas Lilladher went on to add that Bank Nifty also has been witnessing tough resistance near 41600 zone and with fluctuations happening during the intraday session is hovering near the 41000 and 41600 zone.
