Nifty Technical view

The Nifty 50 recently displayed a bearish candlestick pattern similar to a Bearish Engulfing pattern, although not exactly a classic example, on the daily charts. Despite this, momentum indicators like the RSI and MACD remained positive on longer timeframes. After six consecutive days of gains, the Nifty 50 saw some profit-taking as volatility increased. However, the index continued its upward trend, reaching a new all-time high of 23,664.

Put Call Ratio
The Nifty Put-Call ratio (PCR), which reflects market sentiment, fell to 1.10 on June 19 from 1.26 in the previous session. Typically, a rising PCR above 0.7 or exceeding 1 suggests traders are selling more Put options than Call options, indicating a strengthening bullish sentiment in the market. Conversely, if the PCR drops below 0.7 or moves towards 0.5, it signifies higher selling in Call options compared to Puts, reflecting a bearish sentiment in the market.

Indian Vix
Volatility kept rising, creating some discomfort for the bulls. The India VIX, known as the fear gauge, increased by 5.77 percent to 13.71 from 12.97. However, it still stayed below the 200-day Exponential Moving Average (EMA).

FII And DII Data
Foreign institutional investors (FIIs/FPIs) bought Indian stocks worth Rs 7,908.36 crore. Similarly, domestic institutional investors (DIIs) made net purchases of Indian stocks totaling Rs 7,107.80 crore during the same period.
