Look at the 15m chart. It was another volatile day. The V-shaped recovery that happened towards the close protected 39K in BNF and 17500 in FIN NIFTY. These moves may not be that dangerous to the option sellers but the previous FIN NIFTY expiry chart will be a nightmare for the traders preparing for today’s expiry.

The day candles in the last three days have been like hammers with long lower wicks. So, a close below 16,970, the close on Wednesday is important.
Reliance touched 52-week low yesterday. It is at a major swing point. Let us see if there is buying today. FMCG closed in the green unlike other sectors.
I will watch 16,930 on the downside in NIFTY. 17,060 can be watched on the upside.
