Day trading guide for Indian stock market today

On the outlook for the Nifty 50 today, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "Positive chart pattern like higher tops and bottoms is intact and present weakness could be in line with the new higher bottom of the pattern. The next crucial lower levels to be watched are around 21800 and 21700 levels (ascending trend line and 10-week EMA). Nifty has bounced up from near these levels in the past, but a slide below 21700 could open a sharp fall in the near term. Immediate resistance is placed around 22150-22200 levels."

Speaking on the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Vaishali Parekh, Vice President — Technical Research at Prabhudas Lilladher said, "Bank Nifty also witnessed heavy profit booking to indicate a big bearish candle further weakening the bias moving below the significant 50EMA zone of 46,200 level. The index has turned the bias weak and has got the next major support near the important 200 period MA of 45,000 levels."

On the outlook for the Indian stock market today, Rajesh Bhosale, Technical Analyst at Angel One said, "There's a proximity to breaking below a rising wedge formation, coupled with a fresh sell signal in the RSI Smoothened, indicating potential further weakness in the near term. With monthly expiry session, upside potential appears limited, and any rebounds likely to encounter selling pressure."
