Shrey Jain, Founder and CEO SAS Online - India’s Deep Discount Broker, said, “The Nifty 50 and Sensex commenced the day on a positive note. Today’s opening for Nifty at 19,844.65, up from the previous closing value of 19,794.70, reflects the overall optimistic market sentiment. Similarly, Sensex, which concluded last Friday at 65,970.04, saw a slight gain with today’s opening at 66,063.72. Nifty is currently trading within the range of 19,800 to 19,850. Notably, the Maximum Call Open Interest (OI) is observed at 19,900, while the Put OI remains robust at 19,800. This suggests that 19,900 serves as a crucial resistance, while 19,800 acts as a strong support.

Despite the positive trends in Nifty 50 and Sensex at the start of the trading session, still the market is eagerly awaiting some news that could potentially trigger a breakout or breakdown.”
