INDIA VIX is higher at 11.82.
Friday was mostly a day of consolidation for NIFTY, where it closed flat even while BANK NIFTY fell 1%.
BNF had bearishness because of the news that RBI increased the cost of funds to banks and the capital adequacy ratio. This would mean, lower loans being sold to new customers, as well as a lower percentage of unsecured loans.
The PCR values in BNF indicate extreme bearishness.
NIFTY has the highest call OI at 19,800 and the highest put OI at 19,700. PCR is at 0.86.
FINNIFTY has a high call OI at 19,800 and the highest put OI at 19,300. PCR is at 0.79.
But BANK NIFTY’s PCR is the weakest at 0.59. This indicates extreme bearish action over the weekend in the index. It is also reaching the 200-day exponential moving average at around 43,300.
For the weekly expiry, I am expecting calmness in NIFTY this time. But for the other indices, we expect a good action, especially since BNF is having such a bearish tone, We will have to see how the levels are respected for today.
