Update for 4th March 2011

  Nifty Futures Poised for a Test of the 200 DMA at 5660 ?

  • Although, Nifty futures closed flat on a close to close basis on Thursday, the contract has retained all the positive momentum at the close.
  • Nifty futures tested the lower supports twice during the trading session on Thursday, once in the morning and the second, in the afternoon session. But both the tests ended above the lower reference level of 5450.
  • Therefore, Nifty futures seemed to be set for a test of the upper resistances. 
  • The next higher resistance above the present swing high of 5598 is the 200 DMA placed at 5660.
  • The next higher resistance above the 200 DMA is around the 5800 levels, where the futures contract and the underlying index, Nifty,  may meet the upper boundary of the long running trading channel.
  • Due to the lack of time, this update is kept short, but with all the usual charts and data.

 Nifty Options Scene   

The March series Nifty Options Put Call ratio ( PCR )  closed at 1.36 times on  Thursday. ( It seems that the PCR ratio disseminated in the previous post was erroneous due to some bug in the NSE option chain page. )  The India VIX index  closed higher at 22.96, gaining 3.33 %. It seems that a significant quantity of strangles involving the strikes of 4900 and 5900 were bought and sold on Thursday. Apart from this Call open interest increased at the 5600 strike significantly. Some additions to Put OI were seen at the strikes of 5400 and 5500.
