Nifty and BankNifty Chart today
  • As I have shared in my last Market Trend Analysis post, Nifty is trading in the range of 19400 - 19900. This range is important for further levels. A sustainable breakout or breakdown from this range will trigger a long or short signal.
  • BankNifty also trading in the same range (44800 - 46200) that I have shared in the last post. We can expect further upside only after a successful breakout from the 46200 level. On the downside, a breakdown from 44800 will trigger a short trade for the target of 43200.

Based on short-term trends we can create some neutral strategies till we are not getting any fresh breakout or breakdown. Increasing IV also gives a good opportunity to deploy some credit spreads with neutral views like Batman Option Strategy, Iron Condor or Iron Butterfly.
