Unveiling intraday trading tips for Thursday session, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "The short term trend of Nifty is highly volatile. Having moved up smartly from the lows in the last few occasions, there is a possibility of Nifty retesting the crucial resistance of 17,800 levels in the near term. Further sustainable upside on Nifty could occur only above this hurdle."

"A long bear candle was formed on the daily chart with long upper and lower shadow. Technically, this pattern indicates high volatility in the market. The formation of long lower shadows in the last four daily candles signal presence of strong support at 17,400 to 17,300 levels and the market could once again show upside bounce in the coming sessions. The important support of 200 day EMA was into scene on Wednesday after a downside violation at 17,550 levels. This is positive indication," Nagraj Shetti said.
