Nifty Outlook and few trading ideas by Chandan Taparia, Derivatives and Technical Analyst & PFA at MOSL:

 

Nifty Outlook:

 

Nifty index formed a Bearish candle similar to a Bearish belt hold on the daily chart. Index has given the lowest daily close in last 21 trading sessions. Recently it failed to surpass its upper band of the trading range at 9,700 and slipped to the lower band of the range in just two sessions. Overall index has been consolidating in between 9,560 to 9,700 zones from last 19 trading sessions and now a decisive range breakout would give a fresh leg of rally. If it sustains below 9,580-9,560 then a decline could be seen towards 9,520 then 9,480 zone while a hold above 9,620 could witness a bounce towards 9,680-9,700 zone. India VIX moved up by 3.10% at 11.55 and rising volatility from last three consecutive session is making market to turn volatile in the broader trading range. We have seen significant Call writing at 9,600 and 9,700 strike which suggests a limited upside while intact Put writing at 9500 strike could support the market on declines being the expiry week.
