There is no confirmation of any higher bottom reversal as of now.
Day trading strategy for stock market today
Speaking on day trading strategy for Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, “The short term trend of Nifty continues to be choppy with negative bias. The present range bound movement could continue for the next 1-2 sessions and immediate supports for NSE Nifty to be watched around 15,600 to 15,650 levels. On the flip side, a decisive move above 15,850 to 15,900 levels is likely to open a sustainable upside for the market.”
“The Bank Nifty index has relatively underperformed in last few sessions to the benchmark. However, the crucial support in the index is placed around the 33000 mark and if the index manages to hold this support, then a recovery could be expected in the banking space as well in the near term. On the other hand, the Nifty Midcap100 index is trading around its crucial hurdle of ’20 DEMA’ and hence one should keep a close tab on the same. Above 26900, the midcap space too could then witness participation on the long side,” said Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com.
