The Nifty witnessed a smart recovery from its 20-DMA (daily moving average) and formed a Bullish Piercing line candlestick pattern on the daily chart which is suggesting a strong grip of bulls. On the upside, 9-DMA of 17,700 will be an immediate hurdle and if Nifty manages to cross this level then we can expect a fresh move towards 18,000-18,100 zone.
On the downside, if the Nifty slips below its 20-DMA of 17,350 then there is a possibility of a move towards a 200-DMA of 17,000.
Bank Nifty outperformed and formed a Bullish Engulfing candlestick formation at 20-DMA, however, 39,000 will be an immediate and important hurdle; above this, we can expect a move towards the psychological 40,000 mark.
On the downside, 38,000 is an immediate support. If it slips below this level then we can expect a move towards 37,200-36,800 levels.
If we talk about the derivative data ahead of F&O expiry then PCR (Put Call Ratio) is sitting at 1 level and positions of FIIs are not indicating much bearishness. If we look at open interest distribution, 17,500 looks like strong support while 18,000 is a key hurdle as 18,000 Call strike is holding higher open interest.
