Day trading guide for stock market today

Speaking on intraday trading strategy for Nifty today, Subash Gangadharan, Senior Technical and Derivative Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "Nifty has reversed the recent pullback rally and has now closed near the recent lows of 15735. The 20 period MA on the 15 min chart is now below the 50 period MA indicating a negative moving average crossover. A fresh down move is likely once the support of 15735 is broken. While we remain open to pullback rallies in the very near term, we expect the downtrend to continue. The bears would gain more control once the recent intermediate low of 15735 is broken."

Advocating 'Sell on Rise' for traders, Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com said, "We have been recently advocating a ‘Sell on Rise’ strategy on the markets and until there are any signs of reversal, one should continue with this approach for short term trading. Thursday’s gap area will now be seen as a resistance zone and we should soon see the index breaching its recent sing low of 15735. Below this previous low, the next levels to watch out will be around 15,555 followed by 15,325. Traders are advised to continue to trade with a cautious approach and look for selling opportunities from a trading perspective."
