It would have been a very hard expiry for aggressive option sellers yesterday. It was one of the most volatile days of the financial year. The market gave surprise moves and that too in magnitude yesterday.
India WPI came out better than expected. WPI eased from 4.7% to 3.8%.
US inflation came out in line with the estimates. This gives hope to the investors as Powell was waiting for the data to decide on the magnitude of rate hike.
Bank Nifty is below 39,500. The highest put OI is at 39,500. Will the trapped sellers there lead to more fall is the question.
The global markets and Sgx Nifty indicate a positive start for the market. It may give confidence to the put sellers. But what happens in the second half is more important.
I will watch 16,980 on the downside in NIFTY. 17,150 can be watched on the upside.
