Indian market hit fresh record highs in the week gone by but it failed to climb above 13,000 levels which acted as a stiff resistance in the recent up move. The Nifty50 hit a record high of 12,963 before reversing gains.

Investors have nothing to worry about as the trend is still intact and dips towards the support of 12,800-12,700 can be bought while a close below 12680 could lead to selling pressure.

On the options front, maximum Put OI is at 12000 followed by 12500 strikes while maximum Call OI is at 13000 followed by 13500 strikes.

Marginal Call writing in 13200 and 12800 strikes was seen while Put writing was seen at 12800 then 12500 strike. Options data suggests a wider trading range in between 12500 to 13000 zones ahead of November F&O expiry on Thursday.

“The level of 13,000-13,090 remains the key zone for the bullish momentum to resume again towards 13,570 while on the flipside supports are clearly place at 12,680 & 12,510 respectively,” Sacchitanand Uttekar, DVP – Technical (Equity), Tradebulls Securities told Moneycontrol.


“In case if the counter-trend witness signs of fresh Impulse then the lower band could stretch further towards 12380-12050 respectively. Options data to indicate a relatively wider range of 12000-13500 with its mid-point still placed around 12800, with progression in time this band is expected to contract relatively faster,” he said.

Uttekar further added that the expiry week would be followed up a long weekend & truncated week hence it’s likely that traders may refrain from carrying forward any aggressive positions on either side.
