Day trading stock: Despite banking stocks giving support to bulls' attempt to overcome bears, Nifty and Sensex ended in red territory on Tuesday session. Nifty 50 index lost 43 points and closed at 17,721, BSE Sensex went off 220 points and closed at 60,286 levels. However, Bank Nifty index surged 116 points and closed at 41,490 levels. Broad market indices outperformed the Nifty even as the advance decline ratio ended at 0.81:1.

According to stock market experts, Nifty has bounced back smartly after finding support near the 200 day EMA. The index is now finding resistance near the 20 day SMA and has reacted from there on Monday.

Day trading guide for stock market today

"While the bias remains positive, we expect Nifty to consolidate in a range between 17400-18000 levels for the next few sessions. Traders need to focus on stock specific action to make money," said Subash Gangadharan, Senior Technical and Derivative Analyst, HDFC Securities.

On hurdle in upside move in Indian markets, Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com said, "FII’s have been negative on our markets recently as they have been selling equities in the cash segment and have formed short positions in the index futures as well. Their ‘Long Short Ratio’ is just around 15 percent which was last seen when the market formed a bottom in June 2022. So post all the last week’s volatility, the markets seems to have stabilized but still the above data from FII’s and the INR are restricting the market upside move."

"The Bank Nifty index has shown relative outperformance and it too is currently hovering around its ‘20 DEMA’ hurdle. Above 41800, this index too can see a buying momentum towards 42500," Ruchit Jain said adding, "Traders can look for buying opportunities for now and once the above hurdle (Nifty and Bank Nifty) is surpassed, the broader markets are likely to do well."
