Immediate support for Nifty around 16900 – 17000

Minor Long build up in the Nifty Futures, Short covering in the Bank Nifty Futures and Long build up by the FIIs In Index Future Segment, Net long positions in the Index Future segment-Long to short ratio at 2.1(70% of the positions long side in the Index Futures) Indicates that one should be optimistic for the markets. Therefore our advise is to remain bullish and use any decline to accumulate long positions with the trailing stop loss of 16900 levels.

On the higher side, Nifty is likely to find an immediate resistance in the vicinity of 17400 – 17500 levels where Calls have been written. Any close above 17500 level would result into further short covering which might push Nifty to even 18000 level.

Maintain stock-specific approach

“Traders can continue with a stock-specific approach and we may see trades on both sides if Nifty remains in a consolidation mode. But it would be a prudent strategy to keep booking timely profits and considering the volatile nature of global markets, carrying aggressive bets overnight should be strictly avoided. As far as levels are concerned, 17350 – 17500 – 17600 are to be considered as immediate hurdles; whereas on the flipside, 17000 – 16800 should be treated as a cluster of support,” said Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel One.
