Day trading guide for stock market today
Speaking on intraday trading strategy on Nifty today, Subash Gangadharan, Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst at HDFC Securities said, “While we remain open to further pullback rallies in the very near term, we must remember that the intermediate trend remains down. The bears would gain more control once the recent intermediate low of 15,735 is broken. Till then enjoy the rally till it lasts.”
Sharing major levels in regard to Nifty 50 today, Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com said, “In our view, the recent activity in the Nifty where it has taken support several times as it approached 15700-15800 and has faced resistance around 16400 has changed the trend from down to sideways. The index has formed a broad range of 15700-16400 where we can see multiple supports and ’20 DEMA’ hurdle on the higher end i.e. around 16400. Since the short term trend has now changed to sideways, the next directional move will now depend on a breakout beyond the mentioned range and hence, traders should look for either side breakout in the coming week. A move above 16400 could then lead to a decent up move towards 16800 while a break below 15700 would resume the downtrend.”
On Nifty Bank index, Ruchit Jain of 5paisa.com said, “On the bank Nifty index, the ’20 DEMA’ resistance is placed around 34740 and a move above that is required to see a deeper pullback in the short term. Looking at this week’s movement, we advise traders to wait for a clear breakout from the above mentioned range and then trade in the direction of the breakout.”
