Day trading strategy for stock market today 

Speaking on intraday trading pattern, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "After the upside breakout of triangle pattern at 18,100 levels on 18th January, Nifty has failed to display any upside momentum subsequently and shifted later into a sideways movement. Nifty as per weekly chart is placed around the broader high low band of 18,250 to 17,800 levels over the last one month."

HDFC Securities expert went on to add that the short-term trend of Nifty continues to be range bound and this choppy movement within 18,200 to 18,000 levels is likely to continue for the next 1-2 sessions. He said that Dalal Street is waiting cues around upcoming Union Budget 2023, which is scheduled on 1st February, i.e. on Wednesday next week.
