view original post

On the upside, the zone of 49,900-50,000 acts as a crucial hurdle for the index.

Bank Nifty has been trading sideways to positive around 49,800-49,900 levels on June 11, near its upside resistance zone. According to experts, any sustainable move above 50,000 will likely give momentum to the index to resume an upside rally.

Akshay Bhagwat, Vice President of Derivative Research at JM Financial, has a positive view on Bank Nifty with an expected expiry zone of Rs 50,200-50,300. “For the June 11 expiry, Bank Nifty has high open interest set at 49,000 PE and 51,000 CE. The first hurdle is to overcome 50,000, after which momentum will gain in Bank Nifty,” said Bhagwat.

Bhagwat recommends a ratio call spread strategy, which benefits from a moderately bullish view, with no risk if the index falls. However, the strategy may make a loss if the index rises above a threshold.
