Day trading guide for today: Following weak global cues, the Indian stock market ended lower for the third day in a row on Thursday. The Nifty 50 index lost 109 points and closed at the 21,462 level, the BSE Sensex ended 313 points lower at the 71,186 mark while the Nifty Bank index finished 350 points down at the 45,713 level. In the broad market, the small-cap index finished marginally higher whereas the mid-cap index ended marginally lower.

"Nifty continued its downward trend amid selling pressure in HDFC Bank and weak global cues. The index closed with a loss of 110 points at 21462 levels. Sector-wise it was a mixed bag with buying seen in Pharma, Oil & Gas, Realty, and PSU Bank. Strong retail sales data in the U.S., along with hawkish comments by US Fed speakers spooked investors globally," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research at Motilal Oswal.

Day trading guide for stock market today

On the outlook for the Nifty 50 index, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "The short-term trend of Nifty remains weak. Having declined sharply, there is a possibility of pull pullback rally in the short term, which is expected to be a sell-on-rise opportunity. Important resistance to be watched at 21700-21800 levels. The important lower supports for Nifty today are placed at 21200-21000 levels."

On the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Kunal Shah, Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst at LKP Securities said, "The bears maintained control over the Bank Nifty index, leading to a 0.76% decline. The index's immediate support is positioned at the 45500-45400 zone, and a successful defense of this level could trigger a rebound towards 46500. Despite potential short-term fluctuations, the broader trend continues to favor a "sell on the rise" approach, suggesting caution and a likelihood of further declines if the mentioned resistance level is not convincingly breached."

On the outlook for the stock market today, Siddhartha Khemka of Motilal Oswal said, "We expect the market to consolidate in a range with limited upside amid a global uncertain environment. Today, Nifty heavyweights like Reliance, HUL, and Ultratech will announce their results which could drive the index on either side."
