Stock market today: Day trading guide for Thursday

Speaking on intraday trading tips for Nifty today, Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com said, "Nifty has been trading in a channel and it has recovered from the lower end of the channel since the Budget day, and is now moving towards the higher end around 17,950 to 18,000. The market breadth has been positive indicating a buying interest in the broader markets. The only worry factor has been the selling by FIIs as they had only about 15 percent of their positions on the long side and 85 per cent on the short side. But, these positions too seem to be short heavy and if they start covering their short positions then that could lead to a good upside move in the indices in near term."

Ruchit Jain advised traders to trade with positive bias citing, "Traders are advised to continue to trade with a positive bias and look for buying opportunities on intraday declines. The support for Nifty is placed in the range of 17,800 to 17,770 for the expiry day and one can look to buy on any declines towards this range. On the flipside, 17950-18000 is seen as the immediate hurdle, above which the index could see a continuation of movement towards 18,200 levels."
