Stock market today: The Indian stock market closed higher on Thursday, with the Nifty 50 index gaining 203 points and the BSE Sensex surging 676 points. The Bank Nifty index also ended on a high note, up by 289 points. Cash market volumes on the NSE reached 1.17 lakh crore, the highest since May 03. The small-cap index outperformed the frontline indices, and the advance-decline ratio remained positive at 1.32:1.

Trade setup for Friday

On the outlook for Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, a seasoned Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, shares his insights. He says, "The formation of long lower shadows for two occasions in the last four sessions signals emergence of sharp buying on dips. This is a positive indication and suggests more upside ahead. Immediate resistance of 22,300 (mid part of the long bear weekly candle of last week) has been taken out on the upside on Thursday, and the Nifty is expected to reach another resistance of around 22600 levels (upper part of the last weekly candle) in the near term. Immediate support for Nifty today is placed at 22,280 levels."

On the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Neeraj Sharma, AVP Technical and Derivatives Research at Asit C Mehta, said, "The Bank Nifty opened higher but remained volatile throughout the day, ultimately closing higher at 47,977. Technically, the index still respects a bullish engulfing candle, indicating strength. The bullish momentum will continue as long as the index remains above 46,980. On the upside, the 21-DEMA is placed near 48,050, which will serve as the first hurdle for the index, followed by 48,500."

On the outlook for the Indian stock market, Sumeet Bagadia, an experienced Executive Director at Choice Broking, provides his analysis. He says, "The India VIX Index has retraced from the 52-week high, but the volatility index is still in the 19 to 22 range. Bragging below 19 would inject more confidence among bulls. However, breaching the upper hurdle would mean fresh volatility in the Indian stock market."
