Day trading guide for stock market today
Speaking on day trading strategy in regard to Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, “The near term uptrend status of Nifty remains intact and there is no sign of any reversal yet from the highs. Further weakness from current levels could find strong support around 16,400 to 16,350 levels and the Nifty could show upside bounce from the lower levels. Sustainable upside move of NSE Nifty could only resume above the hurdle of 16,800 levels.”
Advising investors to avoid aggressive buying, Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com said, “The divergence after the recent rally of 1000 points indicates limited upside for the time being, and hence we could see the market resuming its corrective phase. Hence, we advise traders to avoid aggressive buying as an up move led by few sectors or stocks is not a good sign.” He said that traders should also be vigilant on the global markets and the US Dollar index which has shown signs of an up move again after the recent corrective phase. Since our markets have recently seen high negative correlation with this index, any upside move in this index could be a factor to worry for.
