Market traded range bound on Monday; Nifty need to hold 11,800 for further upside

Market traded with mixed sentiments throughout the day on Monday on strong global cues. Nifty closed at 11,884.50 shedding 11 points. Metal, PSU banks and pharmaceutical stocks traded with positive sentiments through the day and gained most among indices. Nifty bank closed at 30,992.10 losing 16.30 points from the previous day’s closing.

As per weekly option data, there is a handful of Put writing on lower strikes ranging from 11,700 to 11,900 which shows Nifty likely to take support in the zone of 11,800. Call writing on higher strikes ranging between 11,900 and 12,100 shows market may face stiff resistance at higher strikes. Traders should remain positive as put OI at 11,800 will act as major support levels for the week but 12,000 will act as stiff resistance as maximum OI for the calls stands here. However, if Nifty is able to breach level of 12,000, it will lead to short covering move up to 12,200 levels making all-time high for the index. Therefore, traders should keep a positive bias and should buy at every dip keeping close eye on 11,780.
