Reliance AGM created volatility in the stock, as expected. But what was unexpected was the solo show by HDFC Bank which took up Bank Nifty consistently throughout the day.
August has been a very happening month, just look at BANK NIFTY’s 2,000+ point trading range to understand. And now as we move into the last few days of August, I am expecting more volatility.
Now when we look at BANK NIFTY, both HDFC Bank and Kotak Bank are trying to bounce back after recent falls. Important buy levels are currently being respected and contributing to moves in the market.
So for this FINNIFTY expiry today, I am expecting a trading range of 19,600-20,000. Only if the premiums are too low, you can look at closer strikes with strict SLs in place.
I am expecting FIIs to return to the market this afternoon and push it higher, if European markets continue to be in the green. Watching for a breakout in the major indices.
