At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 18,297.00 down by 0.10%

NSE Nifty 50 commenced with a bullish start, but ultimately saw a decline of 0.10 percent, resulting in a close in the red zone. The index finished below the critical level of 18300.

The Nifty Index acted in accordance with the OI data yesterday, with the 18,300 short straddle nearly becoming worthless as the markets expired close to this level. Looking forward, the trend for the Index over the next two weeks is expected to be sideways with a bullish bias, as indicated by current derivative data which reveals the short straddle for this monthly expiry is at the 18,300 level. Additionally, the highest number of call writers can be found at the 18,500 call, further supporting this hypothesis. Momentum indicators are also suggesting consolidation, which is a positive sign for a continued rally.

The prevailing bullish trend in the market is predominantly attributed to the steady inflow of foreign institutional investments (FIIs) spurred by lower treasury yields and the declining value of the US dollar. Nevertheless, the upbeat mood in the domestic bourses was moderated by a few large-cap firms’ tepid earnings reports. Internationally, the sentiment was buoyant, as the US inflation rate dipped below 5%, assuaging investors’ concerns and instilling confidence that the Federal Reserve’s monetary tightening initiatives have successfully curtailed inflationary pressures.

On 11/05/2023, FII/FPI recorded a buy value of Rs. 7,950.84 Cr and a sale value of Rs. 7,113.63 Cr, resulting in a net value of Rs. 837.21 Cr. Meanwhile, DII reported a buy value of Rs. 7,026.38 Cr, a sale value of Rs. 7,226.47 Cr, and a net value of -Rs. 200.09 Cr on the same day.

Bank Nifty: Up by 0.33%

At the start of the trading day, the Bank Nifty displayed an upward trend and exhibited a gain of 0.33 percent, eventually culminating in a close in the green zone at a figure of 43,475.30. Conversely, the BSE Sensex experienced a dip of 0.06 percent and concluded the day in the red at a low point of 61,904.52.

The index demonstrated an increase of 144 points, reaching 43,475, and produced a small-bodied candle on a daily scale with a long upper shadow and a small lower shadow. This pattern indicates that buyers are emerging at lower levels while selling pressure continues to persist at higher levels.

Bank Nifty underwent a range-bound trading session throughout the expiry period, resulting in the formation of a Doji candlestick pattern, indicating a sense of indecisiveness among traders. Notably, the 43,000 level emerged as a robust support area, backed up by the highest open interest on the put side. However, the 44,000 level acted as resistance, marked by new call writing. As a whole, the market appeared uncertain, with traders keeping a close eye on these crucial support and resistance levels to detect any potential market movements.
