F&O: F&O positions show Nifty may fall to 9,000, 8,800 levels


By Chandan Taparia

Nifty started Tuesday’s session with marginal loss and remained sideways throughout the session. The index moved in a range of 100 points, which was its narrowest range since February 20, 2020. Eventually, the index concluded the session around the 9,200 mark and formed a small body candle on the daily scale.

It moved within the trading territory of Wednesday’s session and thus formed an Inside Bar on the daily chart, indicating indecisiveness among the market participants. The index has been making lower highs for last four sessions and needs to negate this for a bounceback, else weakness could persist. Looking at the overall chart structure, we maintain our negative to rangebound stance and expect Nifty to fall towards 9,000 and then 8,800 level in the coming days. On the upside, immediate resistance is placed at 9,350 level and then 9,450-9,500 zone.

In monthly options, maximum Call open interest stood at 10,000 and then 9,500 levels while maximum Put OI was at 9,000 and then 8,000 levels. Except for some Call writing at 10,000 no noticeable activity was witnessed in other strike prices. Options data indicated an immediate trading range between 9,000 and 9,500 levels.

India VIX moved down 3.20 per cent to 39.93 level. However, the volatility index negated lower high and low sequence of last five weeks, and thus we may see further pressure on any bounce, giving the market a roller-coaster ride.

Bank Nifty opened on a negative note and remained lacklustre throughout the day. It was a perfect day for weekly option writers, as the banking index remained in a range of 400 points, which is its narrowest trading range in last seven sessions. As a result, we witnessed the formation of a Doji candle and Inside Bar patterns on the daily chart, indicating indecisiveness among market participants.

Currently, the index is sustaining well below a Rising Trend line breakdown on the daily chart, but if Bank Nifty moves above 19,800 level, only then we may see a pullback towards the 22,200-22,500 zone. Going forward, immediate support is placed at 19,000 and then 18,700 levels, while resistance is now placed at 20,200 and then 20,500 levels.

Nifty futures closed 0.76 per cent lower at 9,210 level. Long build up was seen in Escorts, Reliance, IndusInd Bank, M&M and Bharti Infratel while shorts were seen in Just Dial, Pidilite, Britannia, Berger Paint and UBL.
