Technical Overview
The index succumbed to selling pressure immediately on Monday and made a series of new lows until Thursday. The decline was arrested near the support of the falling channel coupled with 100 WMA trading near 17050 and the index saw a tepid pullback on Friday ushering a close above the psychological support of 17K. The FPIs recorded the largest short positions in the week gone by to the tune of 4,56,641 contracts in the F&O segment. Peak short positions of FPIs have often been a lead indicator of market reversals. On the price action front, the index is anticipated to garner bullish strength provided the levels of 17050 remain protected on a weekly closing basis. .
