Derivatives Data Analysis and Expiry Day Trading Strategy - Feb 24
Expiry Day Strategy for 24.02.2022
Uncertainty over the global developments on Russia-Ukraine geopolitical tensions have led to higher volatility in the indices in this week. However, if we look at the recent price movement, then it is seen that the index has traded with higher volatility but is confined within a broad range. When the index comes near 16900-16800 range, we witness buying interest over there but selling pressure is seen on pullback moves towards 17300 - 17400.
The recent global geo-political developments have led to rise in volatility and hence INDIA VIX has surpassed its hurdle of 24 and almost tested 28 mark yesterday. The IV’s of options are high which in turn results in expensive options premiums.
FII Data Analysis
During the start of the series, FII’s had more of short positions in the index futures segment, but off-late, they have covered much of the short and their ‘Long Short Ratio’ is now around 54%. They have also formed long positions in the stock futures recently.
Options Data Analysis
Ahead of the expiry day, open interest build up was seen in 17200-17300 call options indicating this to be a resistance range on the expiry day. On the flipside, 17000 put option has highest open interest which will be a level of tug-of-war on the expiry day.
The highest open interest outstanding in Bank Nifty is at 38000 call option and 37000 put option.
Expiry Day Strategy
On the expiry day, the global markets development is likely to derive the momentum. However, given that the data is not negative, we would advice keeping a buy-on-dip strategy and look for buying at-the-money call options in the index when it comes around the support. Below are the intraday supports and resistances for key indices.
• Nifty Expiry day levels - Support at 16985 & 16910
Resistance at 17180 & 17300
• BankNifty expiry day levels – Support at 37215 & 37040
