The Nifty seems to have halted the higher-high higher-low pattern on the monthly time frame after testing the 15,431-mark.

On the weekly timeframe, we saw a sharp bounce back from the 14,248, which also happens to be placed near the March 25, 2021 low.

On the open interest front, huge participation and open interest addition is seen at 15,000 Calls. On the Put side, open interest addition and participation are seen at 14,300 and 14,000 Put contracts.

Thus, going ahead, we can expect Nifty's broader range to be between 15,000 and 14,000.

The ADX plotted on the weekly timeframe can be seen moving lower, indicating a lack of strength, as the index moves in a sideways range.
