Trade setup or Friday

Speaking on the outlook for the Nifty 50 index, Neeraj Sharma, AVP Technical and Derivatives Research at Asit C Mehta said, "Bulls kept their grip on Dalal Street on F&O expiry day, continuing the rise for the fifth consecutive session in a row. India's VIX, rose by 4.42% to 10.73, expectation of volatility in the short term. Volatility increased as traders rolled over holdings in the F&O segment from April to May series. Finally, the Nifty closed the day on a positive note at 22,570. Technically, the index has crossed a bearish gap of roughly 22,500 levels and maintained above it. Thus, the index will likely continue its upward trend and may attempt to break its all-time high of 22,776. The Nifty's short-term support levels are 22,500 and 22,300, with resistance around 22,780 and 23,000. Nifty small-cap index has registered a record high, while mid-cap index is still 1% away from its previous high."

On the outlook for Bank Nifty today, Jatin Gedia, Technical Research Analyst at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas said, "The knee-jerk reaction was bought into and the Bank Nifty witnessed a smart recovery to close with gains of nearly 300 points post opening down almost 400 points. Going ahead we expect the momentum to continue and minor degree pullbacks should be used as a buying opportunity. On the upside, the next hurdle is placed at 49,000. Longs should be held with a trailing stop loss at 48,200 which is the 20-hour moving average."

Unveiling intraday trading strategy for the Indian stock market today, Rajesh Bhosale, Technical Analyst at Angel One said, "The recent rally, particularly evident since Friday, has been characterized by broader market participation and a tendency for buying into dips. This trend is anticipated to persist, with prices likely to retest previous high levels in upcoming sessions. Traders are advised to maintain a positive outlook and capitalize on buying opportunities during market dips. Furthermore, the strong performance of mid and small-cap stocks warrants continued focus for potential outperformance. However, selectivity is crucial at this stage, as the low-hanging fruits have already gone."
