Bank Nifty: The important 50% fib rejection is near 45,000 round levels. But the immediate resistance level to watch out for is 44,800. The immediate support is near 44,400 levels, and a breakdown from there can take the index down to 44,000.
Fin Nifty: Being FINNIFTY expiry today, India Vix was at all-time lows below 11 and option premiums were very low. This created some confusion for option sellers. The index was bearish throughout the day— moving down gradually. As the fall was not quick, the implied volatility (IV) and premiums didn’t spike much, which could have created some trouble for option buyers. But it was a relatively easy expiry for option sellers.
