Trading spot band between 17200 and 17430

The January series has started with relatively low open interest with the Nifty January series OI close to just 1 crore shares. Till we do not see fresh accumulation in OI, major directional move seems unlikely. From a data perspective, the Nifty holds highest Put concentration at 17200 strike for the coming weekly settlement while no major Call base is visible with highest Call concentration placed at the 17400 strike. Hence, positive bias can be maintained till the Nifty holds above 17200 for upside targets of 17500-17600. Move below 17200 may put the Nifty in the consolation mode once again.

For the coming session, the trading spot band is between 17200 and 17430, which means further upsides are likely once the immediate resistances of 17430 are taken out and weakness could emerge if the supports of 17200 are broken.

More upside likely once Nifty breaches 17640

“The long term charts like weekly indicate an upside bounce from the lower supports and monthly signal an upside bounce after a reasonable decline and the extreme long term chart like quarterly has closed with doji or high wave type formation, which means confusion state of mind at the highs. The short term trend of Nifty continues to be positive and one may expect further upside in the short term. A sustainable move above 17640 is likely to negate the bearish setup and that could open more upside as per daily and weekly timeframe chart. Immediate support is placed at 17260 levels.”
