Day trading guide for stock market today
Speaking on Day trading guide for Nifty today; Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "The near term trend of Nifty is sharply down. The placement of important support and the formation of selling climax type candle pattern on Monday could be hinting at a possibility of bottom reversal in Nifty around the crucial support of 16900-16800 levels in the next few sessions. Confirmation of bottom reversal could open a quantum of an upside bounce from the lows."
Echoing with Nagaraj Shetti views; Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com said, "Nifty has corrected sharply on the back of short formations in the index. FII's have been selling in cash segment as well as in the index futures segment since last few sessions which have resulted in selling pressure. The index has tested the 17000 mark, which indicates that markets are likely to be volatile in the near term and hence, traders should trade cautiously and avoid aggressive positions."
On his suggestion to stock market traders today; Ruchit Jain of 5paisa.com said, "INDIA VIX, which measures the implied volatility rose sharply to 23 mark. Although, this is not an alarming level as of now, it certainly is a sign of higher short term volatility ahead of the global and domestic events. Hence, traders should avoid aggressive positions and look for cues from the global markets and options positioning for the coming monthly expiry."
