Hope yesterday’s trading day in FINNIFTY went well. As it did not turn out to be a big movement day, Tuesday was a good day for option sellers.
I still have an eye out for a good breakout in the market. Some factors that align well is the expected volatility of BANK NIFTY for the monthly expiry, and FIIs returning as net buyers.
Even with this expectation, we still have positions running in the market according to the current market conditions. Only when a move is confirmed, trades will be taken accordingly.
Reliance has filled a gap it created while moving up in July. HDFC BANK has also silently moved up. Let’s see if it will turn out to be an interesting expiry or another consolidating one!
