Day trading guide for stock market today

Speaking on outlook for Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities said, "The short term trend of Nifty continues to be negative. The formation of long lower shadows of last three sessions and a formation of doji and hammer type candle pattern at the lows of 16,800 levels in the last few sessions hints at a possibility of lower bottom reversal for the Nifty in the short term. A sustainable upside above 17,150 levels could confirm short term bottom pattern."

"If we look at the daily chart, the Nifty has formed two doji candles towards end of last week and have formed a ‘Hammer’ candlestick pattern in Monday’s session. This indicates that bulls are trying to defend this zone and may like to lift the market higher from this level," said Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com.

Unveiling day trading strategy for Tuesday, Ruchit Jain said, "Trader should look for stock specific trading opportunities and look for cues from the global markets as news flows from the globe is driving the trader’s sentiments at the moment."
