The spot Nifty closed at 3,625 from the intraday low of 3,608, while the May futures closed at 3,631 after touching the intraday low of 3,615. The writing of call and put options indicates that the Nifty has support at 3,400 and resistance at 3,800. The market may show some negative move due to profit-booking at higher levels.

The Bloomberg data suggested that traders booked profit and went short in the Nifty May futures during the morning trade and covered their short positions in the afternoon trade. The May futures closed with a 6-point premium to spot at 3,631 and added an open interest (OI) of 1.02 million shares, indicating build-up of long positions at lower levels.
