Day trading guide for stock market today: Amid the Iran-Israel war and FII's selling, the Indian stock market witnessed sharp selling on Friday last week. The Nifty 50 index corrected 234 points and ended at the 22,519 level, the BSE Sensex nosedived 793 points and closed at the 74,244 mark, and the Bank Nifty index shed 422 points and finished at the 8,564 level. In the broad market, the small-cap index dipped 0.60 percent whereas the mid-cap index went down 0.49 percent.

Israel-Iran war in focus

After Israel's counterattack on Iran, the geopolitical tension in the Middle East has further escalated. Iran fired more than 300 drones and missiles at Israel, which Tehran said was in response to the April 1 strike on its consulate in Syria. Almost all Iranian drones and missiles were shot down by Israeli, US, and allied forces before they reached their targets.

To stop further escalation of the Middle East crisis, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Sunday reached out over the phone to the foreign ministers of Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Egypt, while Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin had calls with his Saudi and Israeli counterparts, amid signs of an escalating crisis in the Middle East following Iran's strikes on Israel.

Day trading guide for stock market today

On the outlook for the Nifty 50 today, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "A small negative candle was formed on the weekly chart with upper shadow, which is indicating a reversal pattern formation as per daily as well as weekly timeframe charts. This is not a good sign for bulls."

On the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Kunal Shah, Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst at LKP Securities said, "The Bank Nifty index experienced significant selling pressure, marking a return of bearish momentum after a prolonged period. The index is currently facing strong resistance at the 49,000 mark, and only a decisive close above this level could revive the upward trend toward the 50,000 mark. Immediate support for the index is established at 48,000, where the highest open interest on the put side has been observed. A breach below this level could intensify the selling pressure."

On factors that may dictate the Indian stock market today, Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research at Motilal Oswal said, "The uncertainty over the US Fed rate cut timing and concerns about rising tensions between Iran and Israel led to a decline in global markets. The rise in bond yields due to hotter-than-expected US inflation and amendment in the India-Mauritius tax treaty likely to impact FII flow dampened the sentiments. We expect markets to remain volatile in the near term given the global concerns and the start of an election next week. With the onset of the earning season, the focus will more shift toward domestic cues along with macro data points. Markets on Monday will react to India’s inflation data and TCS Q4 numbers which will be released today."
