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, "The near-term uptrend of the Nifty 50 index remains intact. Having faced a hurdle at 22,250 to 22,300 levels, there is a possibility of a minor dip in the market next week and that could be a buy-on-dips opportunity. Immediate support for Nifty today is placed at 22,040 levels.

On the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Vaishali Parekh, Vice President — Technical Research at Prabhudas Lilladher said, "Bank Nifty has been quite underperforming as compared to the Nifty index and would need a decisive breach above 47,400 zones to establish a conviction for a further upward move for next targets of 48,650 and 49,750 levels in the coming days."

On the outlook for the Indian stock market today, Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research at Motilal Oswal said, "This week market might take a pause ahead of various global economic data releases. US would be reporting its Q4 GDP numbers along with Initial jobless claim, PCE data, and Consumer Confidence for Feb. However, the overall trend remains positive and thus we recommend investors to continue with buy on dips strategy."

This observation solidifies the control of the bulls over the stock. In terms of Exponential Moving Averages (EMA), the prices are trading above significant EMAs (21, 50, 100), affirming the bullish sentiment in the script. Turning to indicators, the MACD is displaying a positive crossover, further confirming the prevailing buying interest. The confluence of these technical signals suggests a bullish outlook for KFin Technologies.

Astral Ltd has recently experienced an upside breakout of a Rectangle Pattern on the Daily time frame, signaling a favorable trend in the stock. Buyers are likely to find the security more appealing above the 2050 level. The breakout is accompanied by elevated volume, indicating a significant demand for security. The positive trend is further substantiated by the Fast (21) EMA trading above the Slow (50) EMA, reflecting strength on the upside.
