Day trading guide for Indian stock market today: The domestic benchmark equity indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, concluded the trading session with gains despite experiencing volatility on Tuesday. The 30-share BSE Sensex ended higher by 305.09 points or 0.42% at 73,095.22 level while the Nifty 50 closed at 22,198.35 level, up 76.30 points or 0.34%. On the broader market front, the Nifty Midcap 100 closed 0.12% lower, and the Nifty SmallCap 100 closed 0.28% higher.

“Nifty opened lower but soon made a gradual recovery to close with gains of 76 points at 22198 levels. Broader market traded mix with Nifty midcap 100 down -0.1% while Nifty Smallcap 100 up +0.3%. Sector-wise it was a mixed bag with buying seen in Realty, Consumer Durables, Auto, IT, and Healthcare. Railway stocks were in momentum for the second consecutive session after the government announced rail infra projects worth around Rs.41,000 crore on Feb 26. Defensive sectors like IT and Pharma were in momentum with key gainers in large caps like TCS, Sun Pharma, and Cipla. Also, strength was visible in select large caps like L&T, Tata Motors, and HDFC Life providing support to the overall market. Domestic Equities are consolidating in a range with every dip being bought showing strength at lower levels. Overall we expect the market to trade in range with positive bias. Globally investors would watch out for US & Europe Consumer Confidence Data," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.

Day trading guide for stock market today

On the outlook for the Nifty 50 today, Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst, LKP Securities, said, "The Nifty has formed a bullish engulfing pattern after two days of weakness. Additionally, the trend remains positive as the index has consistently stayed above the near-term moving average. Overall, the bulls may continue to exert control as the index has closed above the previous consolidation high. A decisive move above 22,200 might propel the index for a decent rally towards 22,400 in the near term. Support on the lower end is situated at 22,000."

On the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Rupak De of LKP Securities further said, "The Bank Nifty has undergone a correction from its recent peak, reaching the 21-day Exponential Moving Average (21EMA) on the daily timeframe, where it has encountered immediate support. The battle between the bulls and bears may persist for a few more days or until a decisive breakout from the range of 46,500-47,000 on a closing basis. A significant decline below 46,500 could lead the index towards 45,500 in the short term. Conversely, a sustained trade above 47,000 might propel the index towards 47,700."

On the outlook for the Indian stock market today, Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities Ltd, said, "Markets rebounded from 2-session losses as selective buying in frontline stocks aided recovery from early weakness. There is no major trigger and investors are taking cues from global markets. Buying in IT, auto and realty shares boosted gains of key indices, while sharp fall in oil & gas and financial stocks kept gains under check. As we approach F&O expiry day on Thursday, volatility will begin to kick-in as traders will rollover their positions to next expiry day. Technically, the Nifty has support at 22001-21839 while the index faces resistance at 22351 and 22501 levels."

Day trading stocks for today

On stocks to buy today, stock market experts — Sumeet Bagadia, Executive Director at Choice Broking; Ganesh Dongre, Senior Manager — Technical Research at Anand Rathi; Shiju Koothupalakkal, Technical Analyst at Prabhudas Lilladher; and Mitesh Karwa, Research Analyst at Bonanza Portfolio — recommends nine stocks to buy or sell today.

Sumeet Bagadia's stock recommendations

1] Larsen and Toubro Ltd: Buy at 3506, target 3730, stop loss 3400

The stock is presently trading at 3506.45 levels and has found substantial support around 3400, closely aligned with its 20-day and 50-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) levels. The recent robust bounce from this support suggests a bullish stance for LT. The potential for further upward movement, potentially reaching new all-time highs, is underlined by the stock's resilience at key support levels.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator is a testament to the stock's strength, comfortably trading at 58.09 levels. Additionally, LT is trading above all significant moving averages, reinforcing its positive technical position.

A breakthrough above the resistance at 3550 could catalyze a strong upward movement, approaching the all-time high levels of 3730 and beyond. This analysis suggests a favorable outlook for LT, supported by technical indicators pointing towards potential bullish momentum in the upcoming sessions.

Based on the above technical analysis we recommend buying LT at CMP of 3506.45 for a short to medium term outlook with a stop loss of 3400 for targets of 3730.

2] CESC: Buy at 130.50, target 137, stop loss 127.50

CESC, currently trading at 130.50, is consolidating within the range of 126 and 132, exhibiting a potential bullish trend. This consolidation phase, characterized by a bullish candle and notable trading volume, suggests a strong possibility of further upward movement.

Additionally, CESC is trading above key Exponential Moving Averages (EMAs), including the 50-day, 100-day, and 200-day EMAs. This indicates a robust bullish momentum, implying a sustained upward price trend. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) at 47.50 further supports this notion, showing an upward trajectory and heightened buying momentum.

For investors looking to enter the market, buying CESC at 130.50 is recommended. To manage risk effectively, setting a stop-loss (SL) at 127.50 is advisable. This SL level acts as a protective measure, shielding against potential losses in the event of an unforeseen market reversal.

In conclusion, CESC presents an appealing buying opportunity, with a target price of 137. However, investors should exercise caution and implement risk management strategies, such as setting a stop-loss, to protect their investments.
