Stock market today: On account of weak global cues after Tuesday's sell-off on Wall Street, the Indian stock market ended lower on Wednesday. The Nifty 50 index lost 141 points and closed at the 22,055 level, the BSE Sensex shed 434 points and ended at the 72,623 mark whereas the Bank Nifty index finished 74 points lower at the 47,019 level. In the broad market, the small-cap and the mid-cap indices fell more than the Nifty 50 index even as the advance-decline ratio fell sharply to 0.52:1.

"The winning streak for the benchmark index finally came to a halt after six consecutive sessions. Also, the development of the last three sessions got eloped with one day fall, though the 22K mark showed its significance in cushioning the index by the fag end of the session," said Osho Krishan, Sr. Analyst - Technical & Derivative Research at Angel One.

Day trading guide for stock market today

On the outlook for the Nifty 50 today, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "The bullish chart pattern like higher tops and bottoms continued as per daily timeframe chart and Wednesday's swing high of 22,249 could now be considered as a new higher top of the sequence. Hence, short-term weakness could be expected and the next lower supports to be watched at 21,850 to 21,750 levels."

Vaishali Parekh, Vice President — Technical Research at Prabhudas Lilladher said, "Bank Nifty also resisted near the 47,400 to 47,500 zone, and with some profit booking seen in some of the frontline banking stocks, we can expect a small breather or consolidation in the coming days. Both indices' daily trends have remained positive and will require additional positive upward movement to maintain the trend."

On the outlook for the Indian stock market today, Osho Krishan of Angel One said, "The broader view remains intact with the bullish biases, but it seems challenging to hold on to higher grounds with conviction. Hence, one is required to have a pragmatic approach of the ‘Buy on dips’ and ‘Sell on the Rise’ until we see a decisive participation of the bulls in carrying momentum. As far as levels are concerned, a series of support zones could be seen on an immediate basis, starting from the bullish gap of 21969-21953 to the placement of 20 DEMA at 21850. On the flip side, strong resilience can be seen from 22150-22200, and an authoritative closure above the same could only provide thrust to propel the index higher for the 22350-22400 zone in the comparable period. Meanwhile, the high-beta and supportive index Bank Nifty needs to be watched closely for developments as its setup would certainly dictate the intermediate trend for the benchmark."
