Broad market indices rose less than the Nifty even as advance decline ratio remained positive at 2.09:1.

According to stock market experts, a long bull candle was formed on the daily chart, which is indicating an upside breakout of the consolidation movement of last few sessions. Friday's upside move seems to have confirmed the lower bottom reversal at 17,255, of the larger negative pattern of lower tops and bottoms. Presently, Nifty is in an attempt of staging upside breakout of the initial hurdle at 17,600 levels and a move above this area could open the next upside resistance of around 17,800 levels in the near term.

Day trading guide for Monday

Speaking on outlook for Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "Nifty on the weekly chart formed a reasonable bullish candle with minor lower shadow. Formation of such pattern after the sharp weakness of previous week signal chances of upside bounce for the market ahead. Immediate support for NSE Nifty is placed at 17,450 levels."

Expecting the uptrend to continue on Monday, Ruchit Jain, Lead Research at 5paisa.com said, "Apart from key benchmark indices, the Nifty Midcap100 and the Small cap index have interestingly formed a support base around the previous swing lows and have resumed their positive momentum. All the above factors hints that the price wise corrective phase may be over and the markets has likely started the next leg of upside move."

Nifty call put option data

Speaking on Nifty call put ratio, Shilpa Rout, Derivatives Lead Analyst at Prabhudas Lilladher said, "Nifty weekly expiry option chain data reflects maximum additions at 17500PE of over 1.79 lakh OI contracts followed by 17400PE/17000PE each adding over 1.4 lakh and 1.37 lakh OI contracts respectively. CE writers stands at 18000CE with over 1.5 lakh OI contracts and then again 17900CE with 1.29 lakh OI contracts. Call unwinding and aggressive PE additions seen at 17500PE/17600CE, PCR_OI at 17500 is 2.47 which stands as a prominent support for the index on immediate basis."

Bank Nifty call put option data

"Bank Nifty weekly expiry option chain witnesses maximum participation at 41000PE of over 1.2 lakh OI contracts followed by 40000PE/40500PE - each with over 90 thousand OI contracts. CE writers are exposure lies at 42000CE of over 90 thousand OI contracts respectively. Bank Nifty's sustained rise above the 40500 level brings conviction for an upside move for the index," said Rout.

"A prudent way to play this Index would be to buy the Bank Nifty futures along with some ITM PE's, such as 41500 PE. Once markets show a bounce of about 200 more points or half a percent in Bank Nifty, look to sell some far OTM calls for this month’s expiry to protect your downside," said Rahul Ghose, Founder & CEO at Hedged.
