Key Observations

  1. Although the Nifty 50 had a flat opening, it faces challenges in surpassing the 19,800 level. In the hourly chart, most candles closed with long upper wicks, indicating bearishness and a lack of momentum from the bulls.
  2. Also, It's important to monitor the support level at 19,600. If this level is breached, it could signal a potential failure of the Head and Shoulders (H&S) pattern. But here is the silver lining, in such a scenario, a failed buy position could present an opportunity for a fantastic sell position.

Data Points


Calls - Strike Price

Puts - Strike Price

Max OI



The highest CE OI is 19,800, and the PE is at 19,700 levels. This suggests that the markets are expected to revolve around these in the upcoming session.

Levels Worth Monitoring Tomorrow

Based on the data, both 19,800 CE and 19,700 PE are equally building their positions. This suggests the possibility of the index trading within this range. However, if either of these strike prices unwind their position, it could lead to a significant movement in the market.

It's advisable to keep an eye on the 19,600 support levels in the upcoming sessions, as it plays a crucial role in the Head and Shoulders (H&S) pattern.
