The domestic market continued its stellar rally after giving a gap-up opening on last Monday. The Nifty hit the record high level of 11,760. Benchmark indices marked record high, but gains got muted and it lost sheen in the second half of the week.

As of now, no reversal in price pattern is seen on the weekly chart, although overbought level on stochastic oscillators (94) is indicating some profit booking at upper levels.


Although Nifty was lower in the last 2 trading days of the previous week, closing below 11,650 would be alarming for the bulls, till then upside move is intact even on a very small timeframe. On Friday, the index took a breather after making a support from the previous low, but breached previous day’s high keeping bears in doubt.

Lower time frame trend line breakout will be above 11,710 levels, which will push prices to higher levels. A decisive break and close above 11,750 levels can inch Nifty forward to the next levels of 11,900 in the coming week.

Looking at rollover data, the 50-share index has a rollover of 68% higher than 6-month average (67%) and 3-month average (66%) & along with OI data of futures indicates positive tone for next expiry.

It is the first week on new expiry, nevertheless highest Open Interest (OI) in Put is seen around 11,600 strikes followed by 11,500 strikes, with only 32 lakh build up whereas maximum Open Interest (OI) in Call are around 11,800 levels, followed by 12,000.

Options data indicates an immediate trading range between 11,600 and 11,800 marks.

We expect sideways to bullish movement for coming session, within a range of 11,900 on the higher side and 11,550 on the lower side. However, sector-specific action can be seen.

For the Bank Nifty, sideways to bullish movement in a range of 27,600-28,600 is seen. However, the possibility of trading to new life high cannot be ruled out, once it decisively trades higher side of the range. Majority of banking charts suggests Bank Nifty will outperform Nifty in coming sessions.
