DII keeps momentum going
Domestic Institutional investors DII keeps momentum going and the benchmark indices closed in the green for the second day in a row, aided by positive clues from the global indices. Although the euphoria created by FIIs yesterday was short-lived as FIIs become net sellers today, and crude oil is trading around $104 per barrel. However, there is hope that the FIIs will soon return and become net buyers!
The Nifty 50 gained 143 points or 0.89 percent to close at 16133. It reached a high of 16151 and a low of 16046 during the day. Compared to yesterday’s prices, the Nifty made a higher-high and higher-low. Furthermore, the difference between the high and low price was 105, the lowest in the previous seven days, making it an NR7 day.
The Nifty 50 is on the verge of closing the prior gap down around 16200 levels, and we may see some volatility around this level as the market attempts to take out the 16200 level and move forward.
Today, the advance-decline ratio was 2.35, and the market breadth was positive. On the other hand, the volatility index India Vix fell 5.25 percent to close at 19.20.

The Nifty has closed above 15800 level barrier, which is positive for the overall trend. Further, for the last four trading sessions, the Nifty is closing above 20-day moving average price. Similarly, the positive market breadth and falling volatility index is also positive for the over-all trend.
Though there may be volatility around the 16200 level, and 16300 level is technically an immediate resistance on the upside. On the downside, the 16000 level should serve as a firm support.
The Nifty trading range for tomorrow is 16070 to 16175
Momentum begets more momentum; and buyers bring more buyers until someone realises, they’ve gone too far and begins to sell. As of now, the bias is positive in the short term. Stay with the trend!
