Tech View: Nifty Put unwinding suggests correction ahead. Here’s how to trade on Thursday

Nifty on Wednesday formed a bearish engulfing pattern on the daily chart as the index ended 109 points lower but sustained above the immediate support of 10-day EMA around 24,180 levels ahead of the Thursday weekly expiry.

The near-term uptrend status of the market remains intact. But the market seems to have started signs of profit booking around 24,400-24,500 levels. However, a move above 24,465 could negate this bearish setup. Immediate support is at 24,150 levels, Nagaraj Shetti of HDFC Securities said.

Open Interest (OI) data showed that on the call side, the highest OI was observed at 24,500 and 24,600 strike prices, while on the put side, the highest OI was at 24,000 strike price.

What should traders do? Here’s what analysts said:

Shrikant Chouhan, Head Equity Research, Kotak Securities

We are of the view that, today’s day low or 24,150/79,400 would act as a key support zone for the day traders. If the index succeeds to trade above the same, then it could retest the level of 24,450/80,500. Further upside may also continue which could lift the index till 24,500-24,550/80,700-80,900. On the flip side, below 24,150/79,400 selling pressure is likely to accelerate. Below which the market could slip till 24,050-24,000/79,100-78,800.

Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst, LKP Securities

Heavy call writing coupled with decent put unwinding ahead of the weekly expiry suggests the possibility of a correction. Immediate support is placed at 24,270. Below 24,270, the Nifty might fall towards 24,100-24,000. On the higher end, resistance is placed at 24,350-24,400. Expect another round of short covering above 24,400.(Disclaimer: Recommendations, suggestions, views and opinions given by the experts are their own.
