Speaking on outlook for Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, “The short term trend of Nifty remains positive. But, the market is not gaining momentum through the hurdle. Unless the immediate resistance of 17,200 is taken out decisively on the upside, the chances of sharp upside move could be less. Immediate support for NSE Nifty today is placed at 17,020 levels.”

“Bank Nifty is trading below its 20 DEMA support and a breakout above these resistances are required for any upside move in the market. If we look at the derivatives data, FII’s hold record high short positions in the index futures segment with 92 percent of their positions on the short side (mainly in Nifty Futures), while the Client segment has significant long positions outstanding. So it seems to be a tug-of-war with both the parties and a directional move would be seen when either of them will be in a hurry to unwind these positions,” said Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at

“Traders are going into today’s expiry in Bank Nifty with the 40,000 short straddle positions, this is for the monthly expiry as well. Bank Nifty will gain momentum all the way up to 40,800 once it crosses the 40,200 mark. Then there is a congestion zone between 40,800 and 41200, and beyond 41200, fresh long positions can be aggressively initiated on this Index,” said Rahul Ghose, Founder & CEO at Hedged.
