FIIs reduce negative bets

Nifty outlook : Downsides may pause
Last couple of days’ falls look to have prompted FIIs to book profits from the negative bets built up through the last week and on Monday, and have even started to build on some positive bets. The weekly contract expiring tomorrow continues to see shorts in OTMs, which should act as a protection from further falls. Such activity being the highest near 11200, expect Nifty to stage a swing higher from this level. The activity in the monthly expiry contract however is consistent with the negative bets taken prevailing so far, but expect tomorrow’s expiry to set force a change.
