Nifty Technical View

The Nifty index in the stock market is showing a positive sign, but it’s facing a significant hurdle around the 22,800 level. The recent trading session ended with the market staying within a certain range, neither strongly bullish nor bearish. The chart pattern suggests that for the near future, we might not see a clear trend but rather sideways movement, with the index likely bouncing between 22,500 and 22,800.

Put Call Ratio:

The Nifty Put-Call ratio (PCR), a measure indicating market sentiment, increased to 1.28 on May 2 from the previous session’s 1.11. When the PCR rises, especially above 0.7 or surpasses 1, it suggests that traders are selling more Put options compared to Call options. This typically indicates a strengthening bullish sentiment in the market. Conversely, if the ratio falls below 0.7 or approaches 0.5, it suggests that selling in Calls is higher than in Puts, reflecting a bearish mood in the market.

Indian Vix :

The India VIX, which is often referred to as the “fear gauge” because it measures market volatility and investor sentiment, increased by 4.47 percent to reach 13.45 on May 2nd. Additionally, it surged by almost 32 percent over the past six consecutive sessions. This indicates that there has been a notable increase in market volatility and uncertainty over the recent days, as reflected by the rise in the India VIX. Investors may interpret this as a sign of heightened caution or nervousness in the market.

FII and DII data :

According to provisional data from the National Stock Exchange (NSE), Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) net sold shares worth Rs 964.47 crore, whereas Domestic Institutional Investors (DIIs) invested Rs 1,352.44 crore. This data indicates that while foreign investors were net sellers in the market on that day, domestic institutional investors were net buyers, injecting a significant amount of funds into the market. It reflects differing sentiments and investment strategies between foreign and domestic institutions.
