Day trading guide for today: Following weak global market sentiments on disappointing Chinese economic data and geopolitical tension in the Middle East, the Indian stock market fell on the second day in a row. Nifty 50 index registered the biggest intraday fall since 13th June 2022 due to the panic selling across the board led by banking stocks. The 50-stock index crashed 460 points and closed at a 21,571 level, BSE Sensex tanked 1,628 points and closed at a 71,500 level whereas the Bank Nifty index nosedived 2,060 points and finished at 46,064 mark. Broad market indices fell less than the Nifty even as the advance-decline ratio fell to 0.36:1.

"Domestic equities plunged - 2% amid a weak environment globally and a selloff in HDFC Bank. Nifty saw a sharp decline as selling intensified during the day and closed with a loss of 460 points (-2.1%) at 21572 levels. Barring IT, all sectors ended in red amid heightened volatility. The banking sector took the biggest hit with Nifty Bank down 4% as Q3 results of HDFC Bank showed stagnant growth for the company. After making a recent fresh high above 22k levels, Nifty saw a steep fall and turned weak in the near term impacted by negative global and domestic cues. Hawkish Fed commentary, escalating tension in the Middle East, and a spike in bond yield spike dented investor sentiment," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research at Motilal Oswal.
