NIFTY IT showed strength, closing up by more than 1.7%. The sector along with FMCG has been showing strength in the past many trading sessions. 

The recovery in global markets continued yesterday. The NASDAQ and S&P 500 are back to record highs even after the Federal Reserve comment last week.

With this confidence, all the Asian markets are trading well in the green. The European and US futures are also trading in the green.

SGX NIFTY is trading higher at 16,588 indicating a gap up opening in the Indian market. 

The immediate supports for NIFTY are at 16,500 and 16,380. There are strong resistances at 16,590, 16,630 and near the all-time high at 16,700.

Bank Nifty continues to underperform and a breakout is soon expected in the index. The 35,000 and 34,800 supports exist for BANK NIFTY. 35,630, 35,800 and 36,000 will act as immediate resistance for the index. 

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) net sold worth Rs 1,363 crores, and domestic institutional investors (DIIs) net bought shares worth Rs 1452 crores in the Indian equity market. 

In NIFTY, the largest put OI buildup is at 16,500 and 16,000. The largest call OI buildup is also at 16,500 followed by 16,600. Option sellers expect the market to consolidate in a tight range for this monthly expiry.

In BANK NIFTY, the largest call OI buildup is at 36,000 and the largest put OI buildup is at 35,000. Market participants expect the index to move up, but it is not able to find strength.

Many stocks in the Nifty 500 index are now down between 20-75% from their 52-week highs. It might be a good time to stay away from mid-caps and small-caps just because you are getting them at a discount. Invest only in companies where you see buyers have returned, with good fundamentals.

Let’s see how the market moves after the gap up opening. Yesterday, the market moved down as we expected, but looking forward to some strength today.

The upper level I will be watching in NIFTY is 16,630 and the lower level is 16,500.
