Day Trading Guide for Friday

Kotak Securities


On the last day of the December F&O expiration series, the benchmark Nifty hit another all-time high of 14024.80. Today the index opened near yesterday’s closed level and throughout the day it hovered between 13,935 and 14,024.

Technically, after a strong bullish trend rally, the index formed a small Doji reversal formation body close to a significant resistance level. The texture of the charts clearly suggests that the short-term trend is still up, but a strong possibility of an intraday correction is not ruled out if the index is trading below 13,935.

For traders who follow the trend, 13,935 should be the sacred level to watch. By trading below the same level we can expect a quick correction up to 13,875-13,850. On the other hand, 14,025 would be the immediate hurdle for day traders; above the same we might expect a further uptrend to 14,075-14,125.
