Put writing was seen at the strike price of 10,700, which added 6.76 lakh contracts, followed by 10,900 strike, which added 4.58 lakh contracts and 10,800 strike which added 4.45 lakh contracts.
The market ended the month as well as week on a strong note, forming a robust bullish candle on the weekly and monthly scale. The recovery from 10,000 to 10,900 levels suggests that bulls have an upperhand on Dalal Street.
The Nifty 50 rallied 5 percent during the month and gained 3.3 percent in the last week of November, primarily driven by banks, auto and FMCG stocks, while the metal sector was the underperformer.
Experts expect some consolidation in the coming week and are of the view that 11,000 could be possible only in case of positive newsflow.
"Nifty index has been making higher highs - higher lows from last four trading sessions on daily scale and formed a big bullish candle on weekly scale which suggests that bulls are holding tight grip in the market," Chandan Taparia, Associate Vice President and Analyst-Derivatives, Motilal Oswal Financial Services told Moneycontrol.
He said that the index has to continue to hold above 10,777-10,800 zones to extend its move towards 10,929 then psychological 11,000 zones while on the downside major support is seen at 10,650 levels.
The sharp recovery in the rupee against the dollar, the fall in crude oil prices, easing of trade tensions, unlikely aggressive Fed rate hikes, easing domestic liquidity concerns and FII buying boosted investors sentiment last week.
The Nifty 50 gained 18.10 points to close at 10,876.80, forming 'Doji' kind of pattern on the daily charts on November 30, the first day of December series.
A 'Doji' is formed when the index opens and then closes approximately around the same level, but remains volatile throughout the day which is indicated by its long shadow on either side. It appears like a plus sign.
India VIX moved up 2.49 percent to 19.16 levels. However it has to cool down below 17-16 zones to get the smooth ride to surpass psychological 11,000 zones.
