Day trading guide for stock market today
"The underlying trend of Nifty is sharply up. The unfilled opening upside gaps, sharp vertical upside move and the decisive upside breakout of significant overhead resistance indicate more upside ahead for the market ahead. The next upside targets to be watched around 17,600 to 17,800 levels in the next few weeks, but minor downward corrections/consolidations in between can't be ruled out. Important support for NSE Nifty is placed at 16,950 to 16,800 levels."
"Nifty has reclaimed the 17000 level, so let’s see some data to predict whether the up move will continue in the short term or reverse. Firstly, if we look at the derivatives data, the rollovers were slightly lower than the average and the up move in July has been mainly due to a combination of short covering and long formation. FII’s who were aggressive sellers in the last three months have covered their short positions and in fact they have started the August series with net long positions in the index futures. Technically, the index has formed a ‘Higher Top Higher Bottom’ formation on the daily chart and is retracing the previous downtrend," said Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com.
