BANK NIFTY had a rather volatile day of expiry yesterday. It was mostly down trending for the day, with textbook support levels. But towards the last 2 hours, the index moved back up.
This would have caused trouble to intraday option sellers once again, indicating that expiry trading is indeed getting tougher.
The banking system liquidity deficit, which is the ready cash available to banks to meet needs, has come down to a 5-year low. This was caused by the GST payment outflows and might cause some additional pressure on the banking index today.
US crude prices crashed yesterday night but recovered today. Production cuts scheduled for this weekend were postponed. Have an eye out for related stocks.
Talking about NIFTY expiry today, we have straightforward levels to watch out for. PCR is neutral with OI data indicating a trading range of 19,800 plus or minus 85 points.
Even after this trading range, keep an eye out for the levels which we have discussed above. Overly aggressive trades are supposed to be avoided, as the index is in the mood for intraday trend reversals.
Do have a lookout for Reliance, if it touches the 2,400 mark back again today.
