Technically, the Nifty has broken the 24,200 barrier and formed a doji candlestick pattern. Furthermore, the index is forming a higher-top, higher bottom pattern, indicating an uptrend. As long as index holds support of 23,990, it may attempt to test the levels of 24,500-24,600.

The Nifty Bank is consolidating in the band of 52,000 – 53,200. If the index sustains above 53,200, then rally could extend towards 54,000 – 54,200 levels.

Strong put writing was observed at the 24,200 Strike in Nifty while the 24,300 Strike saw call writing, leading to Nifty trading in a range throughout the day. With the FPI long-short ratio of 82 per cent and a put-call ratio (PCR) of 1.45, the market appears to be overheated. Therefore, it is advisable to adopt a cautious approach when building aggressive fresh long positions.

The call writers (3.55 contracts) lead the put writers (1.78 lakh contracts) at the 24,300 strike and the option activity at this strike will provide cues about Nifty’s future direction.

On the Bank Nifty, all Strikes from 52,000 until 53,000 saw call writers (Bears) exiting and put writing, which led the strong up move in the Bank Nifty on Wednesday.

The 53,000 Strike witnessed significant put writing. The put writers, the Bulls with 92K contracts lead marginally the call writers, the Bears, having 76K contracts, at the 53,000 Strike and the option activity at this strike will provide cues about Bank Nifty’s upcoming direction.

Over the last eight trading sessions, the Nifty has consistently maintained its positive trend, never closing below the previous day’s low. The Nifty’s support levels remain around 24,100 while surpassing 24,330 could potentially advance further, targeting towards the 24,400 to 24,500 range.

The 9-day moving average (DMA) at 52,400 serves as an immediate support level for the Bank Nifty. On the upside, resistance is marked at the Fibonacci retracement levels of 127.8 per cent (53,550) and 161.8 per cent (53,900). The daily Relative Strength Index (RSI) stands positively at 67, indicating a sustained bullish momentum.

The bulls have regained control from the bears, pushing the index above 24,300. This shift in sentiment has once again favored long trades in the market. Moving forward, the trend might remain strong in the near term as long as the Nifty stays above 24,000. On the higher end, the index might move towards 24,500. However, a fall below 24,000 could lead the index into consolidation.

Kunal Shah, Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst at LKP Securities

The Bank Nifty is trading in a strong uptrend with higher high and higher low formations on the daily chart. The immediate support now stands at 52,500, and a dip towards this support would be an ideal opportunity to initiate fresh long positions.
