Yesterday, as expected again, volatility hit us hard. But more importantly, 14,000 was breached and then the day ended below the important 14k mark. You can read all about yesterday’s movements here.

Bank Nifty gave a perfect range bound movement yesterday. It moved in almost the same range as the days before, respecting the power of price action. 31,400-31,500 is acting as a strong resistance.

The European markets are down. US markets are slightly up again. Asian markets are mixed. SGX NIFTY is trading higher at 14,030, which is nearly 50 points higher, indicating a gap up opening in the Indian Market.

Yesterday I had written that profit booking will kick in and market will fall after NIFTY crosses 14,000. That happened exactly like that. But today, given the vaccine approval meet, chances are high that NIFTY will sustain 14,000. Hopping for NIFTY to start the year on a high.

Highest Call Open Interest at 14,000, followed by 15,000. Highest Put Open Interest at 13,900, followed by 14,000. The setup looks very bullish.
