INDIA VIX dropped to 20.9.
That was one of the hardest days to trade due to volatility. The sellers might have got trapped as there were double reversals with magnitude. Scalpers would have made good profits. The only way you can survive this level of volatility is by keeping stricter SLs and not entering a trade in haste.
The fact that OI also is becoming irrelevant nowadays is a major concern for option sellers. There was a huge put build-up in 15,500 but the level was thrashed. However, the pull-back was stopped at 15,500 when the market trended in the second half.
Germany Vice Chancellor said that there is gas crisis in the country. DAX moved down by 1.7% yesterday. Let us see how the index opens today.
NIFTY will be at a crucial zone if there is up-move in the coming days as 15,900 marks the beginning of the gap-filling. The US markets are favourable though the European markets are not. How the week closes will be crucial for NIFTY as a failure to begin gap-filling may lead to another round of sell-off.
I will be closely watching 15,500 on the downside and 15,700 on the upside.
