INDIA VIX is at 13.
Foreign Institutional Investors net-bought shares worth Rs 13,000 crores. Domestic Institutional Investors net-bought shares worth 2,000 crores.
The high FII figure is due to the Adani transaction. There was a block deal where the Adani group sold 15k cr worth of shares to a US firm.
It was a low premium expiry yesterday. However, the moves justified premium as there were no major moves except for that fall and an attempt to recover in the first half.
17,300 will be a major level to watch as the ninth red candle closed there. If that is broken, it would be a bounce and a fall. But there is positivity when you look at global markets. There was a good up-move in the US markets.
Fed Official Bostic in his speech said that he favours quarter-point hikes only and does not want bigger hikes, unlike Bullard said last week. This led to the positivity we see right now.
We need nearly 150 points of up-move to see a green candle in the weekly timeframe. The index is moving closer to the swing point of 17,090 in the weekly chart and that would lead to a huge fall.
I will watch 17,300 on the downside in NIFTY. 17,400 can be watched on the upside.
