NIFTY is consolidating between the ranges of 19,650 and 19,300 for the last week. Although there is huge intraday volatility, only these levels breaking will indicate a larger move.
Both NIFTY and BANK NIFTY option sellers have started making aggressive positions on the call side. If this is seen repeating today, it might set an overall bearish theme for next week’s trade.
On the other hand, FIIs have returned to the cash market buying multiple days in a row. Their involvement might take the market up.
For a larger picture of the week, do keep in mind 19,300 and 19,650.
So after a crazy week, let us hope for a calm and peaceful expiry on 17th August.
