Nifty Trend this week:

Nifty Weekly Analysis
  • Like I Shared in my last Weekly Analysis with Option Strategy that 11760 – 11910 is the reversal zone based on Fibonacci extension tool.
  • On Wednesday and Thursday Nifty tried to sustain above 11910 but Friday’s fall took all its weekly gain and closed at 11811.15.
  • Nifty correct almost 200 points from its higher levels on Friday. Is it a sign of weakness?
  • Now 11756 – 11604 would be its strong support zone. This zone must be hold for its upside journey breakout will lead to further lower levels.
  • There is a Gap between 11615-11415, which is still open and Nifty would try to fill this gap before its new upside journey. So keep this gap on your radar.
  • RSI & MACD both are showing weakness. So can we expect some more downside from here? Interesting to watch.
  • Overall Trend is still UP until Nifty is holding 11400 – 111000. This 300 point range will be make or break for short to medium term trend.

Open Interest Analysis:

  • Based on option chain data, the highest open interest stands at 12000 CE & 11700 PE followed by 12100 CE & 11900 PE. PCR of all strikes is 0.48 which is a oversold zone. PCR at 11700 stands at 7.11 which is acting as an immediate support level, PCR at 11900 stands at 0.41 which is acting as an immediate resistance level. Equally, important indicator Option Pain is at 11900, indicating expiry at 11900. A shift in option pain will provide further levels.
  • Today we saw huge open Interest buildup around 24 lakh at 12000 CE, around 15 lakh at 12100 CE with 14 lakh at 11900 CE, which is indicating a strong resistance around 12000 level and market participants don’t expect much higher side in Nifty.
  • Here one thing we need to notice that Upside is locked but downside is fully open, as i told in my previous Weekly Analysis and Option Strategy post, Keep your positions with proper hedge.

Nifty Option Strategy : Iron Condor

Possible adjustments: breakout from 11960 shift Put Spread to 100 points up. Breakdown from 11745, shift call spread to 100 points lower levels.

Bank Nifty Trend this week:

Bank Nifty Chart
  • I shared in my Last Weekly Analysis and Option Strategy post that 31000-30500 is a very strong support zone and I’m expecting Bank Nifty should hold this.
  • This entire week Bank Nifty was holding 31150 and Still Holding after the Budget Speech.
  • There is no sign of weakness. RSI & MACD also giving positive signal.
  • Now 31600-31800 should be Make or Break zone for Bank Nifty, if BankNifty manage to sustain above this zone then only we can expect some higher levels.
  • On the lower side, I’m keeping 30650-30150 as a strong support zone which need to be hold.
  • We should not forget about the GAP at 30072-29480, BankNifty would try to fill this GAP before starting a new Upside rally.
  • Right now we are sitting with no signal zone. At current level, neither a buy signal is coming nor a sell signal. We should wait for a breakout or a breakdown.
  • Range bound trading should be advisable. Keep your risk on limited side and let the market do whatever he wants to do.

BankNifty Open Interest Analysis:

  • Based on Bank Nifty option chain data, the highest open interest stands at 32000 CE & 31000 PE followed by 31500 CE & 30500 PE. PCR of all strikes stands at 0.69 which is a neutral zone. PCR at 31400 stands at 2.46, which is acting an immediate support zone. PCR at 31600 stands at 0.30 which is acting as an immediate resistance zone. Option pain stands at 31500, giving us expiry level. Keep tracking this option pain levels. Shift in option pain will give us new level for expiry.
