Stock market today: Intraday strategy for Monday

Speaking on intraday trading tips for Monday, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities said, "The Nifty continues to show consolidation movement with weak bias at the highs and still there is no formation of any significant top reversal pattern. Further consolidation or minor weakness from here could find support around 18100 levels and we expect upside bounce from the lows."

"In last few trading sessions, Nifty has consolidated in a narrow range which seems to be a time-wise correction within an uptrend. The '20 DEMA’ support for Nifty is placed around 18050 while the momentum readings too are still in buy mode and have not given any negative crossover since last few weeks. The global factors such as US bond yields and the Dollar Index which had recently cooled-off from the highs has not seen any upside move again. Considering all these factors, we advise traders to continue to trade with a positive bias as the index could rally higher in upcoming sessions," said Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com.
