The lower end is placed at 17450 levels. We expect a fresh upward trend to emerge only above 17950 and can take the index to higher levels. Any break below 17450, can drag the index to 17250 levels. Volatility index  India VIX is at 15.65 and we expect volatility to remain high as long as VIX trades above 14 levels. Based on weekly option data, the highest PUT OI was seen at  17800 followed by 17700 strikes which will act as a strong support.The highest CALL OI was seen at 18000 strikes followed by  18200 strikes, which will act as a stiff resistance.

The Bank Nifty closed the week with a gain of 550 points to close at  37775.25. The Bank Nifty face stiff resistance at 38100 levels and witnessed selling pressure at those higher levels. The Index has formed a  bearish candlestick pattern in the daily chart but a bullish inside bar pattern in the weekly time frame. If Bank Nifty managed to close above 38100 in the coming weeks, then Index may test the high of 38500/38600. If failed to cross above 38100, then we can expect the index to consolidate between  38000 to 36900 band.  Based on weekly options data, the highest PUT OI was seen at 37500 strikes followed by 37000 strikes, which will act as strong support.
