POSITIVES
Nifty made yet another ATH .

HDFC BANK held on to 1500+ levels despite BANK NIFTY being under severe pressure.

RELIANCE ended in the green even though it was modest. The fact that it did not join the sell-off is a big positive.


NEGATIVES

Key constituents of Nifty contributed significantly on the downside than what they have in the recent past on the up side.

FIIs and DIIs have both turned net sellers.

BANK NIFTY broke 35600 level and was down 800 points intraday.


TRADING RANGE FOR 20-8-21

Nifty baseline moves down to 16450-500.

BANK NIFTY support base also slides to 35000-400 and resistance at 36200-36500.

INSIGHT / OBSERVATIONS

There was clearly something that was not visible to the naked eyes that is known to the FIIs-DIIs as the selling was consistent in Nifty and BANK NIFTY was even worse.

As of 1255h on 19-8-21, SGX Nifty is down 290 points!

There is something that has happened globally as well - if the US also trades in the negative, we may see a bloodbath tomorrow and the trend for the short term may change.

What do you feel?


Thank you, and Happy Money Making!

NOTE --

This write-up is not a prediction mechanism for the movement of Indices in the Indian markets as the markets are unpredictable in nature. I may refer to many data points in the article but I do not base my view on any of these standalone. In fact, I prefer to react to the price moves than predict the price moves. I also do not review Open Interest. Whatever data points I am using, are all stated in the article. The article title, as well as its contents, can at best be stated as --- This Is How I Read Nifty . I hope I have been able to set the expectations right.
