Day trading guide for stock market today

On outlook for Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities said, "The negative chart pattern like lower tops and bottoms is intact. Having formed a new lower bottom at 19,257 on Monday, the odds of Nifty forming another lower top could be high in the short term. Currently, the strong cluster resistance is placed around 19,550 to 19,600 levels (down sloping trend line, daily 10/20 day EMA) and one may possibly expect weakness from the highs for this week. Immediate support for NSE Nifty is placed around 19,250 to 19,300 levels."

Expecting weakness in Indian stock market to further persist, Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal said, "The market has been witnessing pressure on account of weak global cues especially because of the faltering of the Chinese economy and Fitch's warning to downgrade US midsized banks. Even on the domestic front sharp surge in inflation data and weak monsoon progress in the month of August’23 seems to have dented the investor's sentiments. We expect this weakness to persist in the market in the near term in the absence of any positive trigger."
