Volatile Wednesday on Dalal Street as Indian Indices move forward-

Chart source- Upstox

Indian Markets continue yesterday’s move today as Nifty and Sensex were seen in the Green for the second consecutive day. Nifty as you can see in the chart opened with a GAP-UP after which it wasn’t able to sustain those levels and fell sharply throughout the morning session. After the downtrend, market consolidated for a significant amount of time after which it fell again to reach today’s low. But because of a sudden injection of bulls due to a fall in crude prices to USD 75 per barrel boosted sentiment on D-Street in the last hour, which led to the market making a complete turnaround, in the last hour of the day the Index was able to close in the green. Barring pharma, all the sectors ended in the green, with infrastructure and metals ending the day at high points. The Nifty Midcap index also ended a percent higher. At the close of market hours, the Sensex was up 186.73 points or 0.55% at 34033.96, while the Nifty shut 78.00 points or 0.77% higher at 10224.80. The market breadth was narrow as 1,345 shares advanced, against a decline of 1,203 shares, while 1,045 shares were unchanged. The major Indices of the European Markets, DAX and CAC, were seen in the green. The Asian markets also moved forward as Nikkei and Straits Times were in the Green. But the US market Index NASDAQ was seen in the red.

Let’s take a look at the performance of major Indices.

Expected movement of Nifty tomorrow. How Nifty will move on the day of expiry-

Chart source- NSE India

Let us do some analysis on how Nifty is EXPECTED move tomorrow. As we know tomorrow is the expiry date hence all the contracts will be terminated. Let us take a look at the option chain of Nifty and understand which are going to be the major Support and Resistance levels for Nifty tomorrow. If you look at the chart given by NSE India, we can see that 10,200 strike price is ATM for us right now. If you see the figures given on the right, check the 2nd circle, the Change in OI is at almost 6 lakhs in positive which shows that there has been a lot of PUT writing at that strike price, hence writers are expecting Nifty to go up. Now if you look at the 1st box, you’ll see that about 5 lakh contracts have been opened today by the writers. This 10,100 will prove to be a crucial support for Nifty tomorrow in case market falls. Now let us talk about the alleged resistance level, the support level can be seen at 10,300 strike price as 5 lakh contracts have been opened at that level. The CALL writers are expecting Nifty to stay below that level, hence Nifty might incur a major resistance at that level. Now if you see the rectangular box in the right side i.e. the PUT side, you’ll see a lot of PUT contracts were closed, which in turn tells us that Option traders are not expecting Nifty to move lower than the current levels. All this analysis is just a tentative analysis which means as we all know nothing is sure shot in the market. It is a circle of probabilities.
