Further diving into the Nifty's upcoming weekly expiry, Call writers are showing aggression by building more position compared to put writers.

India VIX, fear gauge, decreased marginally around 3.10% from 14.54 to 14.09 over the week. India VIX is trading near the lowest level of pre-Covid crash. Cool off in the IV has given relaxation to the market. Further, any downtick in India VIX can push an upward momentum in Nifty.

Moving further to the weekly contribution of sectors to Nifty. Most sectors contributed positively to the benchmark, except private banks, consumer goods, infra and pharma. Oil contributed nearly around 107 points in Nifty’s 125 points gain. Telecom and FMGC were the top contributors followed by oil stocks.
