Day trading guide for stock market today

Speaking on intraday trading strategies, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities said, “The positive chart pattern like higher tops and bottoms is intact on the daily chart and still there is no indication of any higher top reversal pattern forming at the highs. Nifty as per weekly chart has witnessed a sharp upside breakout of crucial resistance at the highs so far. The next upside levels to be watched around 19,000 in the short term and immediate support for NSE Nifty is placed at 18,720 levels.”

“Nifty is just a distance away from testing the 19000 mark which would be another milestone to achieve in this rally. However, from a short term perspective, the momentum readings on the lower time frame chart have reached the overbought zone which needs to cool-off. Such overbought situations generally lead to either a time-wise correction or a price-wise corrective phase in the short term. Hence, the risk reward to chase the index at current levels is not very favorable. But the broader markets have recently witnessed buying interest and are now showing some catch up move. Hence, at the current juncture it is better to book profits in the index long positions and focus on stock specific approach where one could get better returns in the near term. The immediate supports for Nifty are placed around 18730 and 18630 while resistance will be seen in the range of 19000-19100,” said Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at
