2. Nifty 50 Value and PCR
On May 12, the Nifty 50 value was 18314, with a higher value compared to the previous day. The PCR (Put-Call Ratio) was 1.09, indicating a higher number of call options compared to put options. The higher PCR ratio suggests that the market sentiment is more bullish, as traders are buying more call options, expecting the market to rise.
3. Option Open Interest
Analyzing the option open interest for May 11 and 18 expiries, we see a total of 7.05 Cr calls and 6.23 Cr puts. For strike price 18300, the put open interest (OI) was 93.26L, with an OI change of +28.94L, while the call OI was 88.29L, with an OI change of 25.03L. Looking at strike price 18450, the call OI was 61.17L, with an OI change of 7.79L, while the put OI was 3.74L, with an OI change of 1.2L.
The option chain analysis reveals a mixed trend for call-and-put options. In-the-money call option strikes show a slow increase in OI, while out-of-the-money call options show a heavy increase. In-the-money and out-of-the-money put option strikes both show a slow increase in OI.
4. Max Pain
Max pain refers to the point where option owners (buyers) feel the most financial pain, i.e., the point where the value of their options would be the lowest. The max pain for the Nifty 50 is at the 18300 strike price, which is the same as the previous day. This implies that the market is expected to gravitate towards this strike price, causing maximum pain for option buyers.
5. Oscillators and Moving Average
The oscillator signals are mostly neutral, with seven neutral signals and one bearish signal. Moving average signals are mostly bullish, with 14 bullish signals, two neutral signals, and one bearish signal. These indicators suggest that the market direction is currently uncertain, with a slightly bullish bias due to the moving average signals.
In conclusion, the Nifty 50 market analysis indicates a mixed sentiment among traders, with a slightly bullish bias due to the higher PCR ratio and bullish moving average signals. The increasing out-of-the-money call OI suggests a positive market direction, while the mixed trends in in-the-money and out-of-the-money put OI and the neutral oscillator signals show some uncertainty. Based on the data analysis, the Nifty 50 market may experience some upward movement in the short term, but caution is advised due to the mixed signals and uncertain market direction. The strong resistance at 18413 and strong support at 18211 should be watched closely in the coming days.
