As of 09:50 AM, the Nifty December futures, which, expires this Thursday commanded 7 points premium; whereas the next month (January) futures traded at 110 points premium.

The Nifty futures, so far, this series has declined 2.7 per cent, and was seen testing the 18,000-mark.

“Nifty futures have seen a healthy rollover of 38 per cent to the next month series as of Monday as against 29 per cent in the previous comparative month.

Rollover of the futures was seen at 45 per cent as against 31 per cent in the previous month. The OI base stood at 2.8 million shares versus 3.1 million shares.

The report further added, that the overall market wide rollover stood at 41 per cent similar to that of previous month.

The Nifty options data, following the sharp sell-off and equally strong bounce back, indicates strong resistance for the Nifty 18,300. Heavy call writing at the 18,300 Call, suggests that Nifty may be unable to close above this level for the December expiry.

The PCR (Put Call Ratio) moved from oversold territory of 0.55 to a neutral zone of 0.87. That apart, a mere 1.5 per cent drop in the Volatility Index (VIX) on Monday, suggests that the pull back may not sustain at higher levels on Tuesday, the report added.
