Max OI



The highest CE OI is 19800, and the PE is at 19600 level, suggesting that the markets are expected to revolve around these in tomorrow’s expiry.

Considering the data and price action, our outlook for tomorrow is slightly bearish, focusing on monitoring the 19600 level for potential intraday price pauses.
