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 short-term trend of the Indian stock market remains weak. But, having placed near the cluster support of around 22,000 levels, one may expect an upside bounce in the Nifty 50 index from the lows in coming sessions. Immediate resistance for Niftyy today is placed at 22,260 levels."

Unveiling the intraday trading strategy for the Indian stock market today, Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at said, "Trading with a stock-specific approach could be a better trading strategy for the near term. The weekly options data hints at supporting the Nifty 50 index in the range of 22,000 to 21,950 which also coincides with a rising trendline support. Only if this support is breached, then one can expect correction towards the 89 DEMA, which is placed around 21,750. However, as the hourly readings are oversold and the market breadth is positive, there could be a pullback move in the index towards 22,400. Traders should keep a close tab on the above-mentioned levels in the index and trade accordingly."
