    Shorts are still intact until Nifty breaks above 17800

    Rollover for Nifty and BankNifty stood at 82.56% and 83.76% respectively. Surprisingly, stronger hands halted selling in index futures and opted to add some longs in recent correction and have rollover these longs in the next series. This has resulted in, Long Short Ratio surging from 54% to 70% now. However, they remained net sellers in equities for November month. Considering the rollover data, we believe most of the shorts are still intact and until we don’t see a sustainable move beyond 17800.

    Use sell-off to buy?

    "Following to Asian trades Indian markets are overreacting to the concern over a new Covid variant found in South Africa last night followed by few EU countries under full lockdown scenario. Traders in fear are selling riskier assets like equities, which could result in increased equity outflows from FII. We believe India is not in panic mode and investors should make use of this selloff as a buying opportunity. The new variant should not be a great matter of concern for us and we suggest investors with suitable risk appetite to consider and start allocating money into markets who have missed the rallies," said Prashanth Tapse, Vice President (Research) at Mehta Equities Ltd, a SEBI Certified Research Analyst.

    Markets might continue to reel under pressure

    “Equity markets have plunged almost 2% amid the emergence of a new, highly mutated Covid-19 variant. EU announced temporary ban of flights from South Africa and few EU countries are already under full lockdown scenario. Thus there is fear of this new variant spreading to other countries which might again derail the global economy. Already there is uncertainty as to when the US Fed will start raising interest rates. So markets might continue to reel under pressure and would actively track covid situation globally," said Hemang Jani, Head of Equity Strategy & Senior Group VP, Broking & Distribution, Motilal Oswal.

    Nifty heading to 17000

    "Yesterday’s pullback after the early scare in the first half, and the inability to push beyond 17561 in the second half, despite several and strong up waves, confirms that consolidation is in play, rather than a directional move. Favoured view expects the same to continue today, without requiring to take a call on the chances of either 19k or 16k for now. During the day, it would be critical for Nifty to float above 17420 to maintain potential for a 17750-800 move. Inability to do so could clear path for 17000."

    Nifty shorts still intact, continue to sell on rise till index breaches 17900-18000 range

    Market had a positive start yesterday despite mixed global cues. In the initial trades, it looked a bit tentative as there was some hangover left of previous day’s late correction. Fortunately, all these nerves settled down in the first half an hour and then it was all big boy RELIANCE’s show thereafter. The stock kept surging throughout the day to mark whopping gains over 6% percent. It is needless to mention when this heavyweight moves in this fashion, it certainly takes the benchmark alongside it. If we look at the contributors list, this stock single-handedly pushed Nifty beyond 17500 as it contributed 104 points in Nifty.

    Nifty may see strong buying in 17100-16900 range

    "The lack of faster retracement of the last decline signifies weak pullback that makes us believe retest of recent low of 17216 can not be ruled out. Over past 3 sessions index has retraced 38% of preceding four sessions decline (18210-17216). Since April 2020, there have been three major corrections (shown in adjoining chart) which measured average 9%. Buying in each of three corrections provided handsome returns for investors as index eventually scaled back to new highs. In current scenario, as Nifty has already corrected 7.5% from life highs of 18600 amid oversold placement of weekly stochastic (currently placed at 21), we expect markets to maintain this rhythm of arresting corrections within 9%. Thus, we expect Nifty to find strong buying demand in 16900-17100 zone," said ICICI Direct.
