Day trading strategy for Friday

Speaking on intraday trading tips, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, “The short term trend of Nifty remains weak. Any slow down in the downside momentum around the support of 18100-18000 levels in the next 1-2 sessions could result in a sharp upside bounce from the lows. There is no sign of any bottom reversal forming around the supports so far. Immediate resistance for NSE Nifty is placed at 18,240 levels.

“The momentum readings on the lower time frame charts have entered the oversold zone and hence a pullback move could be seen in the near term. However, looking at the overall structure the upside could be limited and it could just be a retracement of the recent corrective phase,” said Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at
