What to expect today?

Yesterday, NIFTY opened flat and kept moving up throughout the day to cross the important level of 15,500 and then closed just below 15,600. You can read all about yesterday’s movements here.

BANK NIFTY was more bullish than NIFTY, thanks to ICICIBANK, AXISBANK and HDFCBANK. BANK NIFTY kept moving up from the open and closed above 35,500. The support at 35,000 was validated again.

RELIANCE had another great day yesterday. NIFTY METAL rallied again as steel prices are expected to rise again. 

The European and US were closed yesterday.

Asian markets are flat and mixed. European and US futures are slightly in the red.

SGX NIFTY is currently trading flat at 15,628 indicating a gap up opening in the Indian market. 

The immediate supports for NIFTY are at 15,500, 15.450 and 15,400.

15,700 can act as a resistance where a there is a considerable amount of call option contracts.

36,000 is the next important resistance to be watched out for in BANK NIFTY.

BANK NIFTY has support at 35,500 and 35,000. Let’s see if BANK NIFTY can sustain 35,500 or 35,000.

There are more put contracts in NIFTY than call contracts indicating strength in the market. The PCR of NIFTY is 1.4.

The largest put option buildup is at 15,400. There is a good buildup at 15,500 as well. Both of these indicate the strength in the market.

BANK NIFTY has call buildups as well with PCR below 1, indicating bearishness. But that can change with the movements of index heavyweights HDFCBANK and KOTAKBANK.

3 major levels to be watched out for today, which can influence how NIFTY and BANK NIFTY moves – RELIANCE around 2200, HDFCBANK around 1520 and KOTAKBANK around 1814-1824.

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) net bought worth Rs 2412 crores, and domestic institutional investors (DIIs) net bought shares worth Rs 179 crores in the Indian equity market. 

Another important thing that has happened is INDIA VIX reaching 16.8, which is the year’s low! So, let’s expect very less volatility.

GDP data was announced yesterday and Q4 data was indeed better than expectations. FY 2020-21 data also came out to be near expectation.

As a new month is starting today, a lot of economic data will be announced. Stay tuned.

As said, I will be looking into the above mentioned heavyweights today. I feel the markets are looking positive but the upside should be limited this week. We may find good consolidation.
