What to expect today?

Yesterday, as expected again, volatility hit us hard. There was a 100 points intraday fall in NIFTY but later it managed to recover when the vaccine news came and closed the day again with a green candle. You can read all about yesterday’s movements here.

Bank Nifty gave a perfect range bound movement yesterday. It moved in the exact same range as the day before yesterday, respecting the power of price action. 31,000 is acting as a strong support.

The European markets are down, after the AstraZeneca vaccine was approved. US markets are slightly up after the fall on Tuesday. Asian markets are mixed. SGX NIFTY is trading higher at 13,960, which is nearly 20 points lower, indicating a flat opening in the Indian Market.

SGX NIFTY is trading lower after a very long time. But given the bullishness in NIFTY, it might open strongly and 14,000 can be tested today also. Chances are  high that profit booking kick in and NIFTY go down after it reaches/crosses 14,000.

HDFC Bank has already moved up and regained its losses after the RBI debacle. Reliance is struggling to breakout from 2000. The Auto Sector started moving well from yesterday. So, if Reliance and Auto decide to move up today, then we might even see 14,000 being broken and sustained today.

20 new positive COVID cases with the new strain have been reported in India. At the same time, the entire nation is waiting for vaccine approval on Jan 1, Friday.

Highest Call Open Interest at 14,000, followed by 14,100. Highest Put Open Interest at 13,000, followed by 13,400 and 13,900.

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) net bought shares worth Rs 1824 crore, and domestic institutional investors (DIIs) net sold shares worth Rs 587 crore in the Indian equity market.

Banks, giving a range bound movement yesterday, may breakout or breakdown today. Watch out for 31,000 as that can act as a strong support going ahead. 

Will NIFTY end the year above or below 14,000? Please write down “Above” or “Below” in the comment section. Let’s see what happens!
