Day trading guide for stock market today

On outlook for Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "The short term trend of Nifty remains choppy with weak bias. There is a possibility of downside breakout of the key lower support around 19,300 to 19,250 levels in the short term and that could possibly drag Nifty down to another supports of 19,100 to 19,000 levels in the near term. Any rise from here could find strong hurdle at 19,600 levels."

On outlook for Bank Nifty today, Vaishali Parekh, Vice President — Technical Research at Prabhudas Lilladher said, "Bank Nifty has been moving near the 43,700-44,000 zone with a cautious bias with 43,300 levels acting as the major crucial support zone for the index failing which the overall trend would turn weak and can expect for intensified profit booking ahead. At the same time, as mentioned earlier, it would need a decisive move past the 44,400 zone, for the bias to improve and expect for further rise."
