Derivative Market Analysis

1. Nifty:

  • The option chain data indicates the highest Call OI addition at 23,000, with immediate resistance at 22,500. Conversely, significant Put OI accumulation at 22,000 indicates crucial support for the Nifty. Call writers’ dominance above 22,400 and unwinding of put writers indicates caution.
  • The immediate range for the Nifty is between 22,000 and 22,400. The Nifty's put-call ratio has decreased to 0.78, indicating evolving sentiment.

2. Bank Nifty:

  • The options data reflects significant activity with the highest call OI at 49,500 and immediate resistance at 48,500. Conversely, the highest put OI is concentrated at 47,000, with support at 48,000, suggesting a cautious stance.
  • Despite this, the Bank Nifty's weekly expiry is expected between 48,000 and 48,500, with a breakout likely prompting a directional move. The maximum pain level for the week is at 48,500.
