Nifty’s coming week expiry option chain witnesses PE writers actively adding their positions at 17000PE- overall nearly 90 thousand contracts and fresh additions of over 60 thousand contracts. CE writers stood tall at 17000CE levels, followed by 17700/17800 strikes – more than 55 thousand contracts each. PCR_OI at 17000 being well above 1, is still a very positive sign for the bulls, which, if sustains, then a reversal of trend will be seen for higher targets, otherwise, a slip towards 16600 cannot be ruled out.

Weekly expiry BUY 17050CE at 175/- and SELL 16800CE at 325/-
