NIFTY has finally started gap-filling. There was no day-close above 15,900 for long since the fall. The up-move was stable without breaking any swing point in the fifteen minutes time-frame. There is a ‘W’ pattern formed with a target of 16,030 and the index took support at the neckline, fuelling another round of buying.
There was an anomaly in deep OTM put options today as they rose with up-moves in the market. This can be either due to a fear of fall or due to an increase in demand for deep options by option sellers to hedge their high delta positions.

PCR is above 1.2 now indicating bullishness. But we cannot rule out the chance of a down-move as a result of a volatile expiry. But looking at price action, NIFTY looks strong. Let us see if there is a scope for profit booking and if this turns into a sell-off, then we will see a range-bound market. Looking at Sgx Nifty and the global cues, there is a good base for the markets to rally as well.
I will be closely watching 15,920 on the downside and 16,080 on the upside.
