It was a hard day for option sellers post 1 PM. The fall was quick and continuous. BNF was in the major resistance zone of 42435-42500. The day-high break was not convincing as well.
The report that capital gain taxes were going to be hiked also might have played a role. The government has clarified that the report is not true.
The IT sector is trying to recover from the unexpected fall on Monday. See that the July-low was protected.
The UK and EU will release inflation data today.
You know which zone has to be watched in BNF for a further up-move. Looking at PCR, the market is bearish as the figure is 0.6. Once 42,500 and 17,835 are cleared in BNF and Nifty respectively, we will see a reversal in the OI data as well.
If you look at the price action of Asian markets, you can see negativity. Let us see if this will affect Nifty.
I will watch 17,570 on the downside in NIFTY. 17,835 can be watched on the upside.
