Day trading strategies for stock market today

Speaking on technical outlook in regard to Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "The short term trend of Nifty has turned up sharply after a broader range movement of the last few sessions. A decisive move above 17,300 levels is likely to pull Nifty towards the next crucial resistances of around 17,600 and next 18,000 levels in the near term. Immediate support for NSE Nifty is placed at 17,150 levels."

Unveiling day trading strategy for stock market today, Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com said, "If we look at the international markets, the bond yields have cooled off and the Dollar Index has come off the highs. This led to a pullback move in the equities as a lot of short positions were intact in the system some of which came to cover up. In the near term, our markets are likely to take cues from the international markets move accordingly."

Nifty call put option data

On Nifty call put ratio, Shilpa Rout, Derivatives Lead Analyst at Prabhudas Lilladher said, "weekly expiry option chain witnesses PE writers actively adding their positions at 17000/17200 strikes - overall more than a lakh contracts each, with 17200PE being the most active strike as well. CE writers standing tall at 17500CE now - again more than a lakh contract, with PCR_OI at 17200 being above 2, is definitely a cushion for the BULLs now."

Bank Nifty call put option data
