Home / Markets / Stock Markets /  Kotak Mahindra Bank, HCL Tech to BoB: 6 day trading stocks to buy or sell today

Day trading guide for today: After showing a steep weakness on Friday, Indian stocks witnessed a sustainable upside bounce on Monday and snapped its four days losing streak. Nifty 50 index regained 18,000 levels and finished 207 points higher from its Friday close. 30-stock index BSE Sensex shot up 721 points and closed at 60,566 whereas Bank Nifty ended 962 points higher at 42,630.

Holidays in most global equity markets gave a chance to traders to ramp up stock values in India amidst low volumes. Broad market indices rose more than the Nifty while the advance-decline ratio jumped to 5.43:1. Defensive stocks underperformed while cyclicals bounced up smartly.

Speaking on reasons for trend reversal on Dalal Street, Deepak Jasani, Head of Retail Research at HDFC Securities said, "Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda indicated in a widely watched speech on Monday that the Japanese Central Bank does not intend to alter its longstanding policy of monetary easing to cope with pressures from inflation on the world’s third-largest economy. This soothed sentiments to an extent."

Day trading guide for Tuesday

"Nifty has reclaimed its 100-day moving average (DMA), but 18088, 18133, and 18200 are multiple hurdles on an immediate basis. Nifty has to cross its 50-DMA of 18200 to gain any meaningful strength, while 17850 will act as an immediate hurdle," said Parth Nyati, Founder at Tradingo.

Parth Nyati went on to add that there is a tussle between bulls and bears around the 18,000 mark; therefore, it will be important to see today's price action, and if Nifty manages to trade above 18,000 levels, then there is a good chance of a move towards the 18,200 level.
