Day trading guide for today: Despite Asian equities climbing to seven months high, Indian stock market crashed on Wednesday after short seller Hindenburg raised concerns over the Adani group’s debt position. NSE Nifty nosedived 226 points and closed at 17,891 levels whereas BSE Sensex tumbled 773 points and finished at 60,205 mark. Bank Nifty index crashed 1,085 points and ended at 41,647 levels. Small-cap index fell less than the 50-stock Nifty though the advance decline ratio fell to 0.34:1.

According to stock market experts, the recent upside breakout of triangle pattern has been negated with Nifty reaching the lower end of triangle at 17,800 levels on Wednesday. This is not a good sign, as the weakness could be intensified on the move below 17,750 levels.

Unveiling Pivot levels for Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "The short term trend of Nifty has turned negative. Having placed at the important support, minor pullback rally is expected in the short term. But, the overall chart pattern indicates the higher possibility of decisive downside breakout at 17,750 levels in the near term. Such anticipated market action is likely to bring steep weakness for the market ahead."

Nagraj Shetti of HDFC Securities went on to add that Nifty is currently placed at the crucial support of previous swing lows around 17,780 to 17,800 levels.
