Day trading guide for today: Despite strong IMF commentary on Indian economy and strong global cues, Indian stock market witnessed sharp sell off on Wednesday. All key benchmark indices including small-cap and mid-cap indices ended lower, which signals selling across segments on Dalal Street. Nifty 50 index crashed 302 points and closed at 21,150 levels, BSE Sensex nosedived 930 points and closed at 70,506 mark whereas Bank Nifty index corrected 425 points and ended at 47,445 levels. In broad market, small-cap index crashed 3.42 per cent while mid-cap index tanked 3.12 per cent.

"Domestic equities opened on a strong note and Nifty made a new high of 21593 on back of positive commentary by IMF where it called India a ‘star performer’ and projected India to contribute 16% to global growth. However, profit booking at higher levels dragged Nifty down to close with loss of 303 points (-1.4%) at 21150 levels. All sectors ended in red including mid-cap and small-cap indices. Volatility index India VIX surged by 4% to 14.45. Domestic equities are witnessing sell off after a sharp run up of more than 12% in last seven weeks," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research at Motilal Oswal.
