Nifty Outlook: Stay glued on the puts

FIIs sold index futures worth Rs 1235.28cr yesterday, a massive 30.32% reduction, which is unusual considering almost two weeks is available before expiry. Index future shorts saw increase, albiet a modest one by 5586 contracts. Nifty’s option spectrum, show that the bulky 12000 put strike has begun to off load some positions, with yesterday’s dips, even as other strikes get switched to longs. For now, 12100 put strike has attracted a good deal of attention; so that is what traders are eyeing, especially it being closer to the 60 EMA. The 12500 call strike has also seen long liquidation suggesting that range expectation is reducing, especially with active call strikes seeing IVs below 10. There is a six point difference between call and put IVs, which is quite significant, and can be taken as a strong signal for a sizeable move.
