Though Bank Nifty was range bounded and did not see a strong 3 PM rally, unlike Nifty, the index outperformed Nifty. Reliance saw a big move before the demerger.
There will be a special session to decide the post-merger price of Reliance. Reliance will start trading only after 10 AM. We can expect Jio Financial Services to be listed in the market in four months.
Watch 1674 and 1688 in HDFC Bank. The IT giants consolidated after a fall in the morning.
Look at the call OI build-up at 19,850 CE in Nifty. It is so huge despite being a strike just 17 points away from the spot. Imagine the magnitude of short covering that could happen if that level is broken.
In case that happens, see where BN can rally to. The index has been suppressed by the option sellers leading to a range-bound day. A move out of the zone could be a big one.
No major data are coming out this week. Let us focus on the Reliance demerger. UK CPI came out slightly better than the estimates.
I will watch 19,765 on the downside in NIFTY. 19,850 can be watched on the upside.
