The Nifty is seen dragging down from higher levels due to the liquidation of long positions. Since the inception of current expiry, we are seeing the continuous shedding of open interest (OI) at higher levels by foreign institution investors (FIIs), which clearly indicates a lack of buying interest and discomfort in the market at higher levels.
On Tuesday, the Nifty closed below important support of 9,150 futures. Option data also indicates negative move going forward as we have seen unwinding in puts and writing in calls.
The important point to note is that all the puts are trading near highs of month and calls are trading near lows of the month. This means put writers are on the back foot, whereas call writers are gaining confidence.
Overall data has turned slightly negative and more weakness can be seen. The next support is placed around 9,000 levels. We advise traders to stay cautious in the current expiry.
