Day trading guide for Wednesday: Amid fear of recession, Indian stock market continued to trade range-bound on second straight session on Tuesday. NSE Nifty finished 10 points lower at 17,655, BSE Sensex shed 48 points and closed at 59,196 whereas Bank Nifty index lost 139 points and closed at 39,666 levels. However, mid-cap index outperformed Nifty-50 index and finished 0.47 per cent north.
According to stock market experts, a small negative candle was formed on the daily chart with minor upper and lower shadow. Technically, this pattern indicates a high wave type formation. But having placed this pattern within a narrow range, the predictive value of this pattern could be less. Hence, this could be considered as a range bound action for the market over the last few sessions.
