The net open interest (OI) for Nifty ‘put’ contracts crossed ₹40,000 crore on April 11. This has happened only four times in the past 20 years and each time, the Nifty index rallied between 6 percent and 13 percent in that particular month, data show.

It goes on to add,

“Such a huge build-up of short positions in the Nifty futures and options segment by both foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) and domestic traders implies there could be a massive short-covering rally before the April series derivative contracts expire,” said Rohit Srivastava, fund manager, Sharekhan-BNP Paribas. “The negative sentiment in April calls for a contrarian bet on the market.”
