Day trading guide for stock market today

Speaking on day trading guide for Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "The short term trend of Nifty remains choppy and the market is placed within broader high low range. Minor upside bounce could be expected in the next 1-2 sessions and the market could eventually turn down and retest the support and lower range. Hence, limited upside and higher possibility of decisive downside breakout persists in the market."

Highlighting the trade pattern witnessed recently at Nifty 50 index, Ruchit Jain, Lead Research, 5paisa.com said, "Recently, our markets have been reacting to the global markets direction at the open, but there’s no trended move seen as the index has largely consolidated within the range of 16800-17400. There’s formation of a bearish flag pattern on the daily chart of Nifty and the index is trading within the pattern with no breakout yet. We expect the index to unfold a directional move only on a breakout beyond the above mentioned range. Till then, one should be very stock specific and avoid aggressive trades."

Unveiling intraday trading strategy, Ruchit Jain of 5paisa.com said, "Traders should look to lighten up longs on pullbacks towards the resistances and wait for a clear breakout before trading aggressively. On the flipside, the support range is at 16900-16800 and if this is breached, then we could see a sharp sell-off to drag the markets towards 16470."
