The market continued its positive momentum with the Nifty closing at a record high of 11,356 on Tuesday. The market breadth was positive with almost two advancing stocks for every decline on the NSE. On an intraday basis, we did see the index dip into the negative, but the same got bought into and it went on to hit new highs. Thus, investors can use the declines to buy into for higher levels.
As long as the Nifty holds above 11,260 levels, we expect the index to head towards 11,470 levels, with immediate resistance placed at 11,400 levels. A break below 11,260 levels may see the market test the breakout gap area of 11,210-11,170, which will now act as support.
In Nifty options, maximum put and call open interest stands at 11,000 and 11,500 strikes, respectively. Put writing was seen at 11,200 and 11,300 strikes, which suggests that supports are shifting higher. Call writing was seen at 11,600 strikes.
India VIX is currently placed at 12.58 levels, which is turning up from support levels and could act as a damper for the market. The outcome of the Monetary Policy Committee and Federal Open Market Committee meeting will be in focus in trade today.
