Bisht forecast: "However, markets are likely to remain in its bullish territory as far Nifty is holding well above 15,500 level on broader structure. We can expect some volatility in upcoming week as traders look to book some profits at higher levels. Technically the 16,000 level would act as a key psychological level for Nifty above which we could witness the next round of buying momentum which could take markets towards 16,250 levels as well."

The put-call ratio (PCR) in the June series began with a comfortable level at 1.38. On the other hand, the volatility index VIX has been trading in a narrow range between 19-22 levels.

Bank Nifty

NSE's banking index Bank Nifty further declined by 806.65 points or 2.33 per cent to 35,364.65 points from 34,558 points.

"From technical front, Bank Nifty is facing a strong hurdle in the 35,500-35,700 levels, above which we expect the banking sector to gather some momentum in upcoming sessions," observes Bisht.

Bank Nifty June month rollover was at 80.76 per cent versus 64.60 per cent. Bank Nifty to continue its outperformance. Derivatives analysts forecast Bank nifty may reach around 37,000 with reversal placed at 33,200 points.

Bank Nifty, for a second week in a row, closed on a negative note as private players failed to gauge any noticeable momentum.
