Nifty managed to touch 12,000 led by Nifty bank, need to hold 11,900 for further upside
Markets bounced sharply from intraday lows of 11,850 and traded with positive sentiments throughout the day on Wednesday which will act as an important level ahead of weekly expiry today (November 7). Nifty closed at 11,966, adding 48.80 points. Realty and banking, especially private banks, traded with positive sentiments throughout the day and gained most among indices. Nifty bank closed at 30,609.60 adding 389.80 points positive from the previous day’s closing.
As per weekly option data, handful of Put writing on lower strikes ranging from 11,800 to 12,000 shows Nifty is likely to take support in the zone of 11,900 ahead of expiry. Call unwinding on lower strikes ranging of 11,800 to 12,000 shows market’s trading range has been shifted higher.
Trader should remain with positive bias as maximum put OI stands at 11,900 which will act as major support level for the week but 12,000 will act as stiff resistance as maximum OI for the calls stands here. However, if Nifty is able to breach level of 12,000, it will lead to short covering move up to 12,200 levels making all time high for the index. Therefore, traders should keep a positive bias and should buy on every dip keeping close eye on 11,880.
