The index is now inching towards key resistance level of 9900 and 10,000 and some bit of profit booking cannot be ruled out.
The bulls maintained their hold on D-Street throughout the trading sessions as the index closed near its record high on Thursday and made a strong bullish candle on the daily candlestick charts.
The Nifty which opened with a gap on the higher side gained momentum and rose to a record high of 9,897.25 before closing the day at 9,891.70, up 75.60 points.
The index is now inching towards key resistance level of 9900 and 10,000 and some bit of profit booking cannot be ruled out. The other factor which raises a red flag is the high Put Call Ratio which is now nearing 1.50.
“We are gradually witnessing a shift in higher option band with rising Put Call Ratio. PCR OI based on the Open interest of Nifty is near to 1.50 which is at 5 years high levels,” Chandan Taparia, Derivatives and Technical Analyst at Motilal Oswal Securities told Moneycontrol.
The Nifty now appears to be approaching a risky zone of 9900 – 10,000 levels. It looks like traders are becoming cautious as a result of which a number of scrips declining are outpacing a number of scrips which are closing in positive terrain.
