After touching 200-DMA and 50-DMA (10,750) on the first day of the last week, the market witnessed selling pressure and indices closed in the ed for three consecutive days.

On Friday, Nifty November futures closed at 10,518, however, the index is trading below its max pain strike level of 10,600 for the first time in this series. This raises the possibility of the market taking support at the lower level and get close to the max pain level this week.


Moreover, RSI had given a breakout at 50 earlier and traded higher, which is a bullish sign. However, its pull back to 50 again can be used as buying opportunity till it sustains above 38 levels, which provides good risk-reward ratio too.
