Nifty Technical View

The Nifty 50 had another down day, marking its second consecutive decline, as it remained within a narrow trading range. The prevailing sentiment appears to be shifting towards bearish, with more sellers than buyers and heightened volatility reaching a 15-month high. Despite an attempt to reach 22,600 on Monday, selling pressure erased all gains amid the volatile market conditions. This suggests a potential downturn in the Nifty’s chart, with selling opportunities emerging when the market rises within a specific range. As long as the Nifty maintains above the support level of 22,300, there’s a possibility of a temporary rebound. However, a drop below this level could indicate further weakness in the short term. Therefore, it’s crucial to monitor how the market behaves around the 22,300 level in the coming sessions.

Indian Vix

The ongoing trend of increasing volatility for the eighth consecutive session is placing pressure on bullish investors and providing an advantage to the bears. India’s VIX, often referred to as the fear index, surged by 13.56 percent to reach 16.6, marking its highest closing level since February 1, 2023. This sharp increase represents a nearly 63 percent surge over the span of eight days, signaling heightened market uncertainty and apprehension among investors.

FII and DII data

On May 6, foreign institutional investors (FIIs) were net sellers of shares amounting to Rs 2,168.75 crore, according to provisional data from the NSE. In contrast, domestic institutional investors (DIIs) were net buyers, injecting Rs 781.39 crore into the market. This suggests a divergence in investment behavior between foreign and domestic institutions on that particular day.

Put Call Ratio

On May 6, the Nifty Put-Call ratio (PCR), a key indicator of market sentiment, declined further to 0.85 compared to the previous session’s level of 0.89. When the PCR increases, especially above 0.7 or exceeding 1, it signifies that traders are selling more Put options than Call options. This typically suggests a strengthening bullish sentiment in the market. Conversely, if the ratio falls below 0.7 or trends toward 0.5, it indicates that selling in Call options is surpassing that in Put options, reflecting a bearish sentiment prevailing in the market.
