It was a clear down-trending day in our markets yesterday though there was some recovery towards the end.
Note that VIX dropped despite the fall. Usually, we see a spike in the VIX when the market moves down.
The US markets will have an impact on the sentiments as all the losses of Tuesday were recovered with strength.
There is heavy shorting in options. However, the highest call OI build-up is not that close to the spot. PCR is at 0.6.
Looking at bigger timeframes, it is a follow-up to the bearish engulfing candle in Nifty. 18,065 is a major level in the D-chart.
The fall in BNF is not big enough to shake out the bulls as the rally was huge and the swing points are far away.
Do you see a chance for short-covering to kick in? Or do you think that the bears will take the markets further down after a gap-up opening? It could be a typical expiry day. Moreover, SBI results will be out today.
I will watch 18,115 on the downside in NIFTY. 18,270 can be watched on the upside.
