Yesterday, our market showed that it still has strength even in tough conditions. The index broke Monday’s low initially but went on to touch 21,500.
FINNIFTY traded in a relatively small zone, even though its levels were not respected too much. Aggressive call sellers initially would have gotten a bit burned if they failed to react to the morning bounce back.
Today, there is a green flag all through the market. For the BANK NIFTY expiry, there is a lot of call selling happening at the 48,000 level. Put sellers are also aggressive.
But for the initial 10 minutes of the day, we will have to see how BANK NIFTY opens. There is a possibility that current call sellers at the 48k level might get burned and trigger a short covering.
Hence, expecting a trading range between 47,800 and 48,200 for the BANK NIFTY expiry today. You will definitely get a wider range for option-selling trades as the VIX is higher this week.
All the best for your trades today!
