US markets closed in the green. The European markets also closed in the green.
The Asian markets are all trading in the green.
The U.S. Futures are trading flat.
GIFT NIFTY is trading flat at 19,786.
All the factors combined indicate a flat to gap-down opening in the market.
NIFTY has supports at 19,560, 19,500 and 19,430, 19,300. We can expect resistances at 19,750, 19,800 and 19,890.

Last week, Foreign Institutional Investors net-sold shares worth Rs 3,000 crores. Domestic Institutional Investors covered up for it by buying shares worth Rs 5,200 crores.
INDIA VIX is flat at 10.13.
With this week having very less possibility of news-based movements, and the monthly expiry being done, the chances exist for another good move.
For Monday, it will be interesting to see how aggressive option sellers will be on the call side. If more and more calls are added while the support at 19,500 is defended in the next 2 days, it could indicate bullishness with a chance of short covering.
The global markets are also bullish, even after the Fed interest rate hike.
The technicals indicate a wick in the closing of July’s monthly candle. If today is a green day, the July candle will end strong.
Do have an eye on crude oil’s 4% rally, which may limit our markets even while global markets move up.
