What to expect today?

Friday, NIFTY opened with a gap up, tried to move down, but there was much power from Banking and IT stocks which took up the index to 15,860. You can read all about Friday’s movements here.

BANK NIFTY was much more bullish than NIFTY, with all leading banks moving up. The index closed 1.54% up at 35,364.

BANKS performed the best with HDFC BANK breaking out from 1500 level. 

The European markets closed flat. The US markets slightly moved up and closed nearly flat.

All the Asian markets are trading in the green. US and European futures are up currently.

SGX NIFTY is trading higher at 15,905 indicating a small gap up opening in the Indian market.

The immediate supports for NIFTY are at 15,800 and 15,750. 

Meanwhile, the all time high of 15,900 will act as strong resistance.

35,500 and 35,800 are the important resistances to be watched out for in BANK NIFTY. 

BANK NIFTY has good support at 35,000 34,650 and 34,400. 

The highest call OI buildup in NIFTY is at 16,000 followed by 15,900 and 16,200. The highest put OI buildup is at 15,800 followed by 15,700. The PCR is 1 neither indicating bullishness nor bearishness.

What is more interesting is the PCR of 1.1 in BANK NIFTY, which indicates slight bullishness. BANK NIFTY has highest call OI buildup at 36,000, which indicates that we might see BANK NIFTY crossing the ever important resistances of 35,500 and 35,800 this week.

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) net sold worth Rs 678 crores, and domestic institutional investors (DIIs) net bought shares worth Rs 1,832 crores in the Indian equity market. 

There weren’t many news/data/cues over the weekend and the market seems to continue its strength. NIFTY looks like it is preparing to move to 16,000 soon.

As I have been saying, the key to 16,000 is with banks. If HDFC BANK continues its momentum from yesterday and breaks out from 1520-1530 level, BANK NIFTY can also break out from 35,500-35,800 levels and thus, NIFTY can easily reach 16,000.

Also, IT also looks ready to move further up, which can also help the market to move up.

RELIANCE, which has fallen by nearly 7% after the AGM may bottom out and move up, which can also give power to NIFTY.


But there are also many in the market (for eg, the poll we took yesterday) who feel NIFTY will not reach 16,000 this week. Then, today will be a decisive day as NIFTY will be opening around 15,900.

Also, since we will see July month beginning during the course of this week, a lot of market data will be out and that may also have an influence on the market.
