What to expect today?

Last week was a wake up call to all the bulls. Markets moved down due to local cues on Monday, consolidated till Thursday, further fell on Friday owing to Global Cues. Click here for a detailed analysis of last week’s market and stock movements. 

Friday was again highly volatile for the US market. Though the markets went down heavily, they regained before the markets closed.

Last time we saw a similar fall due to profit booking, the market regained easily and moved up. Similarly, if we get confirmation of the market moving up, this can be a great opportunity to buy stocks in dip. But this time there is a bearish sentiment revolving around the market. NIFTY can fall further if 11,250 is broken.

US Markets are down. Asian markets are mostly down. SGX NIFTY is currently trading at 11,336, which is 25 points lower, indicating a flat to gap down opening in the Indian Market.

NIFTY is likely to trade between 11,250 and 11,450 today. There is support at 11,330 and 11,250 and resistance at 11,400 and 11,450

Highest Call Open Interest at 11,500, followed by 12,000. Highest Put Open Interest at 11,000, followed by 11,200. The shift from 12,000 to 11,500 is a sign of caution!
