Diving into the global markets, you can see that it was NASDAQ which induced slight negativity in Wall Street. There was a 1% intraday fall in the index but it closed just 0.3% lower. Tech giants are in queue to announce their results. Dow closed 0.2% higher giving a flat day to the US markets overall.
The Asian markets are weighed down by the Chinese markets whereas Nikkei is trading 0.3% higher after a gap-up opening. I will watch its day-low for my positions in our market.
We have seen crude oil prices moving down in recent days. There was an 8% fall in the prices following weak economic data. However, the prices are gaining now, though still below $85. The possibility of an increase in demand in China and a weaker Dollar would have contributed to the recovery.
It is evident from the OI data that the call sellers got trapped in the market. 18,900 CE sellers moved away to 19,100 CE and also, 18,900 PE was sold heavily, according to the OI data.
It is a breakout in Bank Nifty Day-chart. Nifty has to travel more to reach the high. Even Fin Nifty had a high created with a red candle and so, it is not yet a breakout there.
ICICI results contributed to this big move in BNF. Let us see if it can survive the selling pressure from the major resistance levels BNF is approaching. 42,850 and 43,000 have to be watched closely.
Watch PDL and PDH in FIN NIFTY for today’s expiry. 18750-19100 can be the range even if the index moves out of yesterday’s zone.
I will watch 17,620 on the downside in NIFTY. 17,830 can be watched on the upside.
