What to expect today?

Yesterday, NIFTY consolidated between 14,650 and 14,750, testing these levels multiple times. You can read all about yesterday’s movements here.

Bank Nifty, which was more bearish, took support at 33,400 and closed just above 33,600.

IT, Pharma and FMCG aggressively moved up yesterday but banks, both private and PSU, dragged NIFTY down.

The 10 year US Treasury bond yield is still the talk of the town. It has stabilized at lower levels again. The European markets moved up from red to close in the green. US also moved up yesterday.

Most Asian markets opened positively, but many of them are moving down now. There has been a huge down move from 7.30 am. SGX Nifty is currently trading lower at 14,697 indicating a flat opening in the Indian market. Note that SGX NIFTY was at 14,800 at 6.30 am. 

The sudden weakness in the Asian markets in the last hour can have an effect on our markets.

14,500 is a major support for NIFTY. It has not closed below 14,500 in a long time. Similarly, Bank Nifty has a medium support at 33,300.

Moving up, NIFTY has strong resistances at 14,750, 14,850 and 14,900.

14,500 to 15,000 is the range to watch out for this week.

Yesterday NIFTY couldn’t move up because Bank Nifty dragged it down. A lot of focus will be on Banking stocks today.

Interestingly, India VIX has moved up to above 20 now.

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) net sold worth Rs 786 crores, and domestic institutional investors (DIIs) net bought shares worth Rs 542 crores in the Indian equity market. 

There is good put OI buildup at 14,500 followed by 14,000. Similarly, the largest call option buildup is at 15,500 followed by 15,000. Yesterday, aggressive call writing happened in the market.

If 14,650 is broken today, we look if NIFTY will take support at yesterday’s low, which is nearly 14,600 or else it can go down till 14,500.

And it’s the first anniversary of fundfolio today. We started on March 23rd, 2020, when NIFTY had hit LC. It was an amazing exponentially rising journey for both us and NIFTY since then! Thank you for all the love and support you have given us. Please don’t send anniversary wishes to me. We all have been in this revolution together, I’d say “Happy Anniversary to Us”!
