Nifty started higher and remained rangebound throughout the session on November 14. On the higher end, the index found resistance around the 38.2 percent retracement level of the previous fall from all-time high of 11,760 to recent low of 10,004.

In addition, 200-EMA on the daily frame acted as active resistance for the rising Nifty. During the day, banking and financial stocks mostly remained in the green. On the other hand, IT and pharmaceuticals dragged.

India VIX remained muted for the day.

On the options front, 11,000 CE ended with most open interest followed by 10,800 whereas 10,000 PE and 10,200 PE ended the session with most open interest.

For the last few days, Nifty has not been able to go above 10,700 where as on the lower end 10,400 remained as the support. Going forward, the trend may remain sideways as Nifty continues to remain in the range of 10,400 and 10,700.

A decisive move above 10,700 may induce a rally towards 10,830 whereas on the lower end breakdown below 10,400 may induce weakness in the market.
