Derivatives view by Ms. Sneha Seth (Derivatives Analyst, Angel Broking):
"Post yesterday's range bound move, we started off today's session slightly lower and corrected towards the support of 11650 in the early morning trade. However, once again strong buying interest emerged from the above mentioned support to reclaim 11800. Finally, the Nifty has recouped major portion of its losses in the last two sessions and concluded in green with the gains 0.83%. The banking index was also showing decent strength throughout the day and has closed above the hurdle of 30824.
As far as F&O activities are concerned, some short covering took place in Nifty futures; whereas, fresh longs were formed in banking index. In early morning trade, 11700 call writer are quite active but they got intimidate as soon as Nifty convincingly surpassed 11700. Eventually, we saw good amount of unwinding in 11700-12000 calls. On the flip side, massive writing took place in 11600-11800 puts. Today's development in index options segment is indeed a sign of further strength. Hence, traders are advised trading with a positive bias for June series expiry."
