Indian market could recoup losses and Nifty50 could well head towards 18,000 levels, suggest experts.
“As we re-approach the psychological mark of 18,000, the evolution of VIX would be crucial. The favoured view continues to expect Nifty to head into the 18100-18200 before any major attempt to reverse,” Anand James – Chief Market Strategist at , said.
“Downside markers may be pushed higher towards 17835-17845 for intraday trades, but just as we maintained on Wednesday that there are not enough signs of topping out, for which reason, we will continue to maintain the 17,660 region as the main reversal point,” he said.
The highest new OI addition was seen at 18000 for Calls and 17500 for Puts in weekly and at 18000 for Calls and 17500 for Puts in monthly contracts.
