Trade setup for the day

Yesterday was a bad expiry for me. I had a fat finger error trade. I had a different strike in mind but while executing I executed a different strike and I realised this after half an hour. So I had to pay for that mistake. But that is fine. I did not lose much as I was busy in countering that trade. The overall loss was very less. A lesson learnt at a cost.
Coming to the market, we are in the last week of Jan expiry. Yesterday was a huge short covering day. The markets gained almost 65 points and banknifty gained 300 odd points. We need to see if the move was due to weekly expiry or has the pre-budget rally started. If 12200 is crossed strongly then I will consider it as a strong pull back. Lets see if that happnes today. Now we also have Corona fears. Yesterday there were some cases in Singapore as well. Yesterday SGX fell 65 points and now it has recovered almost all that it fell.
The nifty has taken a strong support at 50DMA. So that can be considered as strong support. If that is broken then you can expect more downfall.
