Day trading guide for stock market today: Six stocks to buy or sell on Saturday — 20th January
Buy or sell stocks for today: Despite being Saturday today, dealing on Dalal Street will take place from 9 AM to 3:30 PM. The decision has come ahead of the Ram Temple ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony in Ayodhya on Monday, January 22. So, the stock market in India will remain closed on the following Sunday (21st January 2024) and Monday (22nd January 2024).
On Friday, positive global sentiments helped key benchmark indices of the Indian stock market to register a decent recovery. After losing for three straight sessions, the Nifty 50 index gained 160 points and closed at the 21,622 level, and the BSE Sensex shot up 496 points and closed at the 71,683 mark. However, the Bank Nifty index ended marginally lower at 45,701 level.
“Nifty ended its three-day losing streak as the global market took a breather. The index closed with gains of 160 points (+0.8%) at 21622 levels. All sectors ended in the green. Buying was seen in Oil & Gas, Metals, and Financials,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research at Motilal Oswal.

On the outlook for the Nifty 50 today, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, “The upside bounce of Friday could be a cheering factor for bulls to make a comeback. But, as long as the sharp opening downside gap of Wednesday remains open at 21970, there is a higher probability of a sell on rise in the market for the short term. Immediate support is at 21550 levels.”
On the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Ashwin Ramani, Derivatives & Technical Analyst at SAMCO Securities said, “Bank Nifty opened with a gap up but the momentum fizzled out quickly as Bank Nifty fell 12 points to close at 45,701. Heavy call writing (bear entry) was observed at 46,200 Strike in the index, with the bears further strengthening their position. The Index has a strong put writing (Bull’s support) at 45,500 Strike. If Put writers exit from the 45,500 Strike, Bank Nifty can extend its fall even further until 45,000 levels.”
On triggers to the stock market today, Siddhartha Khemka of Motilal Oswal said, “Investors will track the results of key index heavyweights like Reliance, HUL, ICICI Bank, and Kotak Bank which will be released over the weekend. The market will take cues from global factors including Bank of Japan and European Central Bank meetings and economic data from the US, China, and Japan. Next week the result season will pick up pace with a host of key large and mid-cap companies releasing their numbers. Overall we expect domestic equities to trade in a broader range with positive bias.”
