Day trading guide for stock market today

Speaking on outlook for Nifty today, Subash Gangadharan, Senior Technical and Derivative Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "Technically, with the Nifty surging higher to new life highs, the bulls remain in control. Further upsides are likely once the immediate resistance of 21,492 is taken out. Caution is however warranted for the near term as the 14-day RSI at 84.93 is in overbought territory. 14-week RSI is at 75.87, which implies that it is not extremely overbought and there is scope for more upsides in the intermediate term. Thus, any short-term corrections can be utilized to buy into quality stocks. Crucial supports to watch for weakness are at 21,319 to 21,235."

On outlook for Bank Nifty today, Sheersham Gupta, Director & Senior Technical Analyst at Rupeezy said, "Bank Nifty, spearheaded by PSU Banks, has surged to a record-breaking 48,200 levels, inching closer to the significant 50,000 milestone. Technical analysis and open interest data suggest a support range at 47,800 to 48,000, with resistance identified at 48,200."

On outlook for stock market today, Osho Krishan, Sr. Analyst - Technical & Derivative Research at AngelOne said, "It had been a tremendous week for the bulls, wherein all major sectoral indices kept the momentum going with their significant participation. Going forward, it is advisable to have a selective approach and look out for thematic movers amidst the ongoing sectoral rotation. Meanwhile, the stance remains bullish, but one needs to stay light on positions on either of the sides for key indices. Also, as the rally has been backed by robust global developments, a thorough check on a regular basis is required to project immediate trends."
