INSIGHT / OBSERVATIONS
BANKNIFTY range for the day was very narrow. There is something likely to happen in this index during the week.
Profit booking seems to be going on in many scrips or else how can one explain so many reds in the leading indices when one of them is trading at ATH .

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.
