Speaking on Nifty technical outlook, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, “The sharp intraday weakness of Thursday could be a worrying factor for the bulls to sustain the highs. As long as Nifty sustains above the supports of 17300-17200 levels, there is a possibility of an upside bounce from the lower levels. One may expect broader range movement for the Nifty around 17,700 to 17,800 on the upside and 17,300 to 17,200 levels on the downside for the near term.”

“Nifty Bank technically likely to face resistance at 39,473, above which 39,827 likely to be seen. However failing to sustain the resistance will see the next technical target till 38,687,” said Shilpa Rout, Derivatives Lead Analyst at Prabhudas Lilladher.

Nifty Call Put ratio

Speaking on Nifty call put data, Shilpa Rout of Prabhudas Lilladher said, “The series ends with an indecisive note, however the BEARs getting back into the game is no good news for the BULLs out there. NIFTY Option chain for the weekly expiry suggests data being aggressively scattered all over again, with 17700CE/18500CE holding overall maximum exposure of more than a lakh contracts each, with 17000PE being the most aggressive one showing immediate support. PCR OI at 17500 is nearly 2, which if sustains will show some upside momentum.”

Bank Nifty Put Call ratio

“BANK NIFTY FUT Option chain on PE writers being active at 39000PE – with more than 40 thousand contracts, followed by 38500PE/38000PE. CE writers adding their positions at 39500- with overall 70 thousand contracts, hints on a very narrow trading range for the INDEX,” Shilpa Rout said.
