What to Expect Today?

The Asian markets are trading mostly in the red, with Japan’s Nikkei down 1.35%.
The U.S. Futures are trading flat.
GIFT NIFTY is trading flat at 19,767.
All the factors combined indicate a flat to gap-down opening in the market.
NIFTY has supports at 19,600, 19,550 and 19,500. We can expect resistances at 19,670, and 19,750.
BANK NIFTY has supports at 45,600, 45,470 and 45,230. Resistances are at 45,900, 46,000, and 46,240.
NIFTY has the highest call OI build-up at 19,800. The highest put OI build-up is also at 19,800.
BANK NIFTY still has strong call OI build-up at 46,000. The highest put OI build-up is also at 46,000.
Foreign Institutional Investors net-sold shares worth Rs 3,979 crores. Domestic Institutional Investors net-bought shares worth Rs 2,528 crores.
INDIA VIX is flat at 10.51.
With yesterday’s monthly expiry, volatility was definitely expected. And as traders and institutions carry forwarded their trades to next month, all of NIFTY’s move were fast.
The futures OI data indicate that the August Futures were not heavily sold as yesterday’s fall. Options also indicate that 19,800 has a huge straddle buildup already for next week with a combined premium of 237 points.
There is enough space for the indices to swing throughout the week, with the premiums of the straddle.
The technicals still indicate that there is bullishness in the market. But today’s gap-down will decide if this view stays relevant. The U.S. GDP numbers and crude oil movements are indicating that the general economy is also in decent shape, for now.
As we get to the end of the week, the expectation is an initial gap-down opening with a recovery towards the middle of the day.
