Day trading strategies for stock market today

Unveiling day trading strategy in regard to Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "The short-term uptrend of Nifty remains intact and there is a possibility of minor consolidation in the next 1-2 sessions around the hurdle of 17,400 to 17,500 levels before showing a decisive upside breakout of the said resistance. Immediate support for NSE Nifty is placed at 17,220 levels."

"In last four trading sessions, Nifty has recovered half of the recent losses and has retraced the corrective move from 18100 to 16750 by 50 percent. The upside move has been from the support of ‘200 DEMA’ and has been mainly due to the global factors where the Bond Yields and the Dollar Index has cooled off from their highs which is positive for equities. However, the indices are now trading around the crucial resistances as both Nifty and Bank Nifty are at the 50 percent retracement of the previous correction," said Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com.

Ruchit Jain of 5paisa.com went on to add that the momentum readings which were in the oversold zone in during last week have cooled-off and has in fact now reached the overbought zone on the hourly time frame chart. Hence, traders should look to lighten up some longs around current level and will for more confirmation where the markets sustain above these retracement resistances or not. Until there’s resumption of a ‘Higher Top Higher Bottom’ structure, this upside move should just be read as a pullback move and hence, one should stay cautious.
