Day trading guide for the stock market today -

“Nifty as per weekly chart, formed a long positive candle with upper shadow. The near-term uptrend status remains intact for Nifty as per smaller and larger timeframe charts and there is a possibility of an upside bounce from the lows in the next 1-2 sessions. Immediate support is placed at 18550-18450 levels," said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

“Over the near term, sentiment is likely to remain sideways, with 18,500-18,800 to be the crucial range. A decisive breakout from either band may induce a clean directional move in the market," said Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities.
