As per weekly option data, handful of Put writing was seen on lower strikes ranging from 12,100 to 12,200 which shows the Nifty is witnessing good support in the sub-12,200 zones. Call writing on higher strikes ranging in 12,300 to 12,400 shows the market is likely to face resistance at higher levels. Traders should try to buy any dip at higher levels as the market has maximum put Open Interest (OI) at 12,200 which will act as major support level for the weekly expiry, but 12,300 will act as resistance as maximum OI for the calls stand here. However, if somehow the Nifty breaches the level of 12,300, it will lead to short covering move up to 12,400. Therefore, traders should buy at every dip keeping close eye on 12,200.
