Indian Market Outlook:

FED interest rate most likely to be hiked from 25 bps to 50 bps in the scheduled June 15 FED meeting, further confirmation will come if 3 month US treasury yield trades above 36 bps. The open interest data, SEBI's P-Note decision along with FED rate hike expectation in June 15 might put further selling pressure in Nifty. However, the short term trend would be sell only if Small Cap trades below 5090. Nifty is opening 20 points gap up at 7783 from yesterday's close of 7763 at 8:05 am IST.


International Market Outlook

Asian shares rose on Monday after a solid session on Wall Street, while the dollar held near recent highs against major rivals as investors bet that the U.S. Federal Reserve was on track to raise rates sooner rather than later. Finance policymakers at the G7 agreed to avoid competitive devaluation, but shunned a call by Japan to stimulate economies with fiscal measures while seeking "balanced" fiscal, monetary and structural reform policies to support global growth.

Markets have started to entertain the prospect of a near term U.S. rate hike after last week's release of Fed meeting minutes showed that policymakers weren't shying away from raising interest rates as early as next month. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen will appear at a panel event hosted by Harvard University on Friday. Fed branch presidents including those from San Francisco, St. Louis, Dallas, Minneapolis are also slated to speak earlier in the week.

FII Derivatives Statistics

The FII derivatives statistics data published by NSE shows that there has been net selling of 751 contracts in Index Futures by FIIs which is worth 44.91 crores. However, In Index options, the data shows that FIIs are net short 10056 contracts which is worth 566 crores. The data is misinterpreted generally since there has been a net sell worth Rs. 618 cr (approx) in the options market as shown in the table below. FIIs are net short in calls, which is SELL in the market, and they are net buyer in the Puts which is also SELL for the markets. Hence instead of taking the difference of call and put we need to sum up both which gives a net sell worth 618 Cr in Index Options.
