Nifty needs to hold 11,100 for further upside: Gaurav Garg of CapitalVia

Jubilant Life's stock is witnessing resistance breakout from the levels of Rs 760
Nifty outlook

The Indian markets traded with mixed sentiments last week and witnessed sharp short covering move from its immediate support level of 11,100. However, the Nifty closed above 11,100 which might act as immediate support level and might be crucial for this week as the monthly expiry is on July 30 (Thursday). On Friday, Nifty managed to close at 11,194.20, slashing 21.30 points. Technology stocks traded with positive sentiments whereas metal, PSU banks and financial stocks closed in the red. Nifty bank closed at 22,662, slashing 421.90 points from the previous day’s closing.

As per weekly option data, handful of call writing can be seen on higher strikes ranging from 11,200 to 11,400 which shows Nifty would face resistance in the sub 11,200 zone. The level of 11,000 might act as support as maximum put open interest (OI) is placed there. We can witness short-covering move along with addition of fresh position only if Nifty breaches 11,200. Therefore, traders should try to create short position keeping a close eye on 11,200.
