Day trading guide for stock market today

“Nifty is now making an attempt to stage upside breakout of the last 7-8 sessions sideways range at 17000-17450 levels. The immediate resistance of 17490 of previous lower top has been surpassed on the upside marginally. This is positive indication," said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

"The short term trend of Nifty continues to be positive. A sustainable move above 17500 levels could be considered as an upside breakout of the range movement and also an immediate hurdle. This could pull Nifty towards the upside target of 17800-18000 levels in the near term. Immediate support is placed at 17350," Shetti added.
