Bank Nifty continues to be more bullish than NIFTY, reaching nearly 35,000. It closed 1.43% above at 34,758.
NIFTY has moved 1250 points in 3 days now! Normally, it is time to expect consolidation/cooling down. Global markets have also cooled down thereby we can expect the same in NIFTY as well.
Europe and US closed flat, with a negative bias. Asian markets are also mostly trading lower. SGX NIFTY is trading higher at 14,849, indicating a flat to gap up opening in the Indian Market.
Looking at the global markets, even if NIFTY opens with a gap up, it will be difficult to sustain it. I feel NIFTY will move down today.
If moving up, watch out for yesterday’s high of 14,870. Moving down, NIFTY has support at 14,600 and 14,500.
Highest Call Open Interest at 15,000, followed by 16,000. Highest Put Open Interest at 14,000, followed by 14,500.
