Lack of follow-up buying nullified the breakout attempt, Nifty slipped below 18000
Sensex (61003) / Nifty (17944)

Future outlook
In continuation of the lacklusterness from the past couple of trading weeks, our market started the new week on a mild note within
the same slender range. However, by mid-week, the buying emergence in the broader market led Nifty to break the shackles and
come out from the slumber phase. But eventually, the bulls failed to capitalize on the gains and by the weekend, Nifty re-entered its
congestion zone. Post the intense tug of war throughout the week, Nifty settled around 17950 levels, procuring nearly half a percent
from the previous week’s closure.
The lack of follow-up buying nullified the breakout attempt, and we fell back into the same zone from where we had started.
However, the recent price action could be seen as constructive development for our markets as the index is hovering above the
sloping trend line and has also attempted to transcend the sturdy hurdle of the 18000 mark after two weeks of consolidation. As far
as levels are concerned, we remain hopeful till the sacrosanct support of 17800-17700 is firmly withheld. On the flip side,
sustenance above 18000 could only bring the cheer back in the market, while on the higher end 18200 is likely to be the sturdy wall
in a comparable period.
We remain sanguine with the up trend and would advise the traders to utilize the dips to add long position in the index. Meanwhile,
a positive contribution from the high beta Banking space could provide the much-needed thrust in the up move. However, despite
the lackluster moves in the indices, individual pockets kept buzzing and we expect this to continue. Hence, we advocate traders to
focus on a stock-specific approach for better trading opportunities and stay with a similar buy on decline strategy till the time
important supports are held comfortably.

Derivatives View
Nifty current months future closed with a premium of 6.80 against a premium of 20.60 points to its spot in the previous week. Next
month’s future is trading at a premium of 114 points.
The Indian benchmark index attempted to break shackles and come out of the slumber phase, but lack of follow-up buying nullified
the attempt and the index slipped back into the congestion zone. In the F&O segment, we witnessed strong short covering by mid-
week, but on the last trading session some short formation was seen, which dampened the overall sentiments. On the options front,
a decent piling of OI is seen at 17900-17800 put strikes, suggesting nearby support for Nifty. On the flip side, the 18000-call strike
has the highest OI concentration, followed by 18100-18200 CE, suggesting a series of resistance in the comparable period. The
stronger hands have covered some of their shorts in the system, resulting in an improvement of the ‘Long Short Ratio,’ which surged
to 23% from 18% in the last week. Considering the recent price action, a short covering rally could be an encouraging sign for our
markets. Hence, we must keep a close tab on the mentioned levels and act accordingly.
