Domestic equity markets saw a flat start to the week after the Nifty ended Monday at 10,807. Market participants remained cautious ahead of the Karnataka assembly election results after exit polls predicted a hung assembly.

After touching a new high of 10,835 on Monday for the current rally, the index formed a doji candlestick pattern for the day, indicating indecisiveness in the market. Technically, the index continues to hit higher highs and higher lows and now, sustaining above 10,770, the index can rally towards 10,910-10,940.

On the down side, immediate support is seen at 10,770. If it breaks below that level, profit booking can be seen at the next support level, which is placed at 10,680 and 10,620.

On the Nifty options front, the maximum open interest for puts is seen at a strike price of 10,500. For call options, the maximum open interest is seen at a strike price of 11,000, which is likely to act as resistance for the market. Addition of open interest was seen in the 10,700 and 10,800 puts, suggesting that the market's base is moving higher.
