    Time to remain cautious

    Since last 10 odd sessions, Nifty has done nothing. In fact if we take a close look at the daily time frame chart, we can see prices oscillating precisely within the boundaries of a small ‘Upward Sloping channel’. Due to last two days’ of small correction, we are trading at the mid-point of this trading range; but some of the heavyweights are now indicating a possible weakness from hereon. For the coming session, 17900 – 17800 are the levels to watch out for. This being the lower boundary of the ‘Channel’ pattern, a sustainable breach of this lower range would lead to further correction in coming days.

    On the flipside, 18130 followed by 18200 are to be considered as stiff hurdles. We continue to remain cautious on the market and advise using intraday rebounds to lighten up longs. Yesterday’s correction was mainly led by RELIANCE and banking space; hence all eyes on these going ahead as they are going to dictate the near term direction.

    Extended consolidation in Nifty

    "We expect the index to prolong the ongoing consolidation in the broader range of 18200-17700 amid stock specific action as sectoral churn continues. Over past 11 sessions index has retraced 61.8% of 9 sessions decline (18604-17613) seen during October. The lack of faster retracement on either side indicates extended consolidation which would offer incremental buying opportunity as index approaches price/time wise maturity of correction," ICICI Direct said.

    Further downside expected if Nifty breaks below 17,930

    The Nifty weekly strike wise PCR OI of 18000 fell to 0.85 vs 0.1.10, indicating call writing and fresh call writing was seen at strike price 18100 , which indicated that the index could continue the previous day trend . This pushed index PCR OI lower from 0.99 to 0.86, indicating there was more buildup of OI in the call segment. Buildup of OI was seen in the 18100 call. Combined with a fall in the option price, it indicates that call writing has happened at these strikes implying immediate resistance at these levels for the near term. So, further downsides are likely once the immediate support of 17930 is taken out.
