Volumes on the NSE were in line with recent average. Among sectors, metals, IT and healthcare indices rose the most, while telecom and realty indices fell the most. Broad market indices performed a little better than the Nifty though advance decline ratio was much below 1:1.

According to stock market experts, a small negative candle was formed on the daily chart with long lower shadow. Technically, this pattern indicate a formation of bearish hanging man type candle pattern. But, having formed this pattern amidst a range movement, the predictive value of this pattern could be less.

Day trading guide for stock market today

"The short term uptrend status of Nifty remains intact and there is no indication of any sharp reversal pattern at the highs. The consolidation with high volatility is likely to continue for the next 1-2 sessions. Immediate support for NSE Nifty is placed at 17,200 and the strong resistance to be watched at 17,500 levels. A decisive move above the hurdle could pull Nifty towards the next upside trajectory of 17,800 levels," said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities.

Advising cautious stock picking, Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com said, "Since the momentum readings on the daily chart are in an overbought zone, traders should look to lighten up long positions. A break of low of 17,160 will then confirm the change of trend. Also in last couple of sessions, the upside move has been concentrated to fewer stocks and sectors which is a sign of divergence. So traders should be very specific in stock picking at current levels and trade with proper risk management.

On morning cues from SGX Nifty today, Anuj Gupta, Vice President — Research at IIFL Securities said, "Overall trend of SGX Nifty is positive and one should maintain buy on dips strategy on Friday session. Immediate support for SGX Nifty is placed at 17,270 mark whereas strong support zone for the index is around 17,100 levels. Likewise, SGX Nifty is facing immediate hurdle at 17,520 while strong hurdle for the index is placed at 17,680 mark."
