Day trading guide for stock market today

On the outlook for the Nifty 50 today, Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst, LKP Securities, "The Nifty traded within a range following a flat start. The index formed back-to-back doji patterns on the daily chart, typically indicating a pause before the next move. However, sentiment remains positive, with the Nifty closing above the important moving average. Momentum also remains positive, as indicated by the RSI in bullish crossover. Over the short term, the trend is positive, with potential to reach 22,650-22,700. Support is positioned at 22,350-22,300 on the lower end."

On the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Kunal Shah, Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst at LKP Securities, "The Bank Nifty index maintained a narrow consolidation pattern in anticipation of the RBI policy. With downside support at 47000 and upside resistance at 48000, a breakout in either direction could trigger significant market moves. Despite the consolidation, the overall sentiment remains bullish, suggesting that dips should be seen as buying opportunities, especially with immediate support around the 47400-47350 zone."

On triggers that may dictate the Indian stock market today, Siddhartha Khemka of Motilal Oswal said, “Global markets are expected to remain volatile ahead of key economic data scheduled to be released within two days. Further, US Fed Chair Powell's speech is also due on Wednesday which will be keenly looked upon. Key event to watch – US Job opening data to be released late today. After the strong move seen in the previous session, we expect the market to consolidate over the next few days keeping various key events in mind."

Sumeet Bagadia's intraday stocks for today

  1. JSW Steel: Buy at 879.25, target 940, stop loss 849

JSWSTEEL, currently trading at 879.25 levels, is showing signs of a positive technical outlook. The stock has recently given a strong breakout above 850 levels, demonstrating its ability to maintain price stability.

Notably, the stock has successfully crossed a minor resistance level at 870 levels. This is a positive development, as it signifies a potential change in the stock's trend.

There is another resistance level in the vicinity of 895 levels. If the stock manages to sustain a position above this mentioned resistance, it may pave the way for an upward movement towards the target level of 940 and beyond.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI), a momentum indicator, is currently trading at 68.13 levels. This RSI reading suggests a moderate level of strength in the stock, without being in overbought territory. It implies that there is room for the stock to potentially gather further momentum.

BAJAJFINSV is currently trading at 1656.55, displaying a pattern of higher highs and higher lows, indicative of a bullish momentum that is likely to persist. A potential breakout above 1670 could propel the stock towards the 1730 level, with an immediate resistance at 1700. On the flip side, 1610 serves as a crucial support level.

Furthermore, BAJAJFINSV is trading above key Exponential Moving Averages (EMAs), including the 20-day, 50-day, 100-day, and 200-day EMAs. This signifies a robust bullish trend, suggesting the possibility of continued upward movement. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is currently at 63.75, on an upward trajectory, indicating growing buying momentum. The Stochastic Relative Strength Index (Stoch RSI) supports this bullish sentiment with a positive crossover. Collectively, these technical indicators imply that BAJAJFINSV has the potential to reach the 1730 target in the near term.

To manage risk effectively, it is advisable to set a stop-loss (SL) at 1610 to protect the investment in case of an unexpected market reversal. A prudent strategy would involve considering buying opportunities on dips at levels around 1640 and 1625.

In summary, based on technical analysis and prevailing market conditions, BAJAJFINSV appears to present a promising buying opportunity for those targeting a 1730 price objective. It is crucial to implement prudent risk management strategies to navigate potential market fluctuations.
