Day trading guide for today: After losing on seven straight sessions, Indian stocks finally ended in positive zone on Friday. However, this buying on last session of September 2022 couldn't help Dalal Street to pare the losses it incurred in the last three consecutive weeks. For Nifty 50 index, September was the worst month since June 2022. After end of Friday session, NSE Nifty finished 276 points higher at 17,094 while BSE Sensex surged over 1,000 points and closed at 57,426 levels. Bank Nifty index shot up 984 points and ended at 38,631 levels.

According to stock market experts, a long bull candle was formed on the daily chart, which indicates a formation bullish engulfing pattern. Formation of such pattern after a decent weakness from the highs of 18,000 mark signal a possibility of an important bottom reversal for Nifty around 16,800 levels.

Day trading strategies

Speaking on trade setup for Monday, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "The short term trend of Nifty has turned positive. The placement of important support and the overall chart pattern of daily and weekly signal a crucial bottom reversal at 16,747 levels. One may expect follow-through upside move in this week. The next overhead resistances to be watched around 17,200 to 17,300 levels. A sustainable move above this hurdle is likely to open doors for 18,100 mark in the near term."

On Nifty technical outlook, Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com said, "With Friday’s upside move, the Nifty index has formed a ‘Bullish Engulfing’ pattern on the daily charts around its ‘200 EMA’. However, FII’s have turned sellers again in the cash segment and have rolled over their short positions in the index futures segment too which indicates their bearish stance for the October series. Also, as per the Elliott Wave Analysis, this seems to be an impulsive down move which hasn’t completed its five waves yet. Hence, as of now we are readings Friday’s upside move as just a pullback move within a short term downtrend."

The Elliott Wave analyst went on to add, "Our markets are not out of the woods yet and hence could continue to see higher volatility and witness selling pressure at higher levels. The immediate resistances for NSE Nifty will be seen around 17,200 and 17,330-17,380 range, where traders should look to lighten up longs in this upside move. On the other hand, the immediate support for Nifty are placed around 167,50 and 16,500 levels."
