NIFTY FMCG(+1.2%), NIFTY MEDIA(+1.4%) and NIFTY METAL(+1.1%) closed in the green. NIFTY PSU BANK(+3%) shot up near the closing time. NIFTY IT(-0.88%) closed in the red again.

European markets managed to gain after opening, but still closed in the red. The U.S. market closed in the red.. 

Most Asian markets are now trading in the green, with just the Japanese market flat. The European futures and the U.S. futures are trading flat currently.

SGX NIFTY is trading lower at 18,046 indicating a gap up opening in the Indian market. 

The supports for NIFTY are at 18,000, 17,940 and 17880. We can expect Nifty to take resistance once at the levels of 18,040, 18100 and 18200.

BANK NIFTY has a strong support at 38,000 and one at 38,450. Resistances are at 38600, 38800 and 39000.

NIFTY has the highest call OI buildup now at 18,000 followed by 18,200. The highest put OI buildup is at 17,800 followed by 17,900. 

If the gap-up does happen, as indicated by SGX NIFTY, then we might see some interesting movements today. Like we discussed yesterday, there could be a short covering movement from all the aggressive call sellers at 18,000 who will now be in losses. The market could jump up more if the all-time high is broken at 18,041 and sustained.

Once again both institutions turned net sellers. Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) net sold worth Rs 278.32 crores, and domestic institutional investors (DIIs) net sold shares worth Rs 741 crores in the Indian market.
