NIFTY technicals and options data indicate bullishness for the week, while Bank Nifty does not.
For FINNIFTY, I will be selling 19,900-20,200 to start off the day. If premiums are higher, even further away strikes will be looked at.
It is interesting to see that our market might open flat even with U.S. 1% in the green. Bank Nifty option sellers will be happy, as there was heavy call writing yesterday.
Speaking of this, do be aware that there are 3 lakh+ contracts at the 45k call strike. This would be a very tough resistance to break and will turn into a support once broken.
Do be aware that on Thursday morning 10 AM, RBI will be having its policy meeting where the expectation is for interest rates to remain unchanged.
So till then, markets are most likely to trade in a range.
