Upcoming Derivatives Expiry 26 nov 2015

The Nifty, which managed to reclaim its level 0f 7,800-7,850 this past week, will be watched keenly as volatility is expected to increase ahead of the expiry of November futures & options contracts due on Thursday, November 26.
Parliament’s upcoming winter session and the derivatives’ expiry are set to rock the equity markets during next week’s trading session. As per market observers, with the end of the earnings season, investors will be glued to political developments to see whether the government is able to pass key economic legislation during the winter session that begins on November 26 and will run till December 23.
Markets will now look forward to political cues such as the passing of key bills and the government’s stance towards the opposition in ensuring the winter session is not wasted, Last week, the government’s efforts to reach out to the opposition before the crucial winter session to get the Goods and Services Tax (GST) bill passed cheered the equity markets.

The US central bank has given signs that it might go in for a series of gradual rate hikes starting from December.
However, in the short term, higher interest rates in the US are expected to lead away FPIs (Foreign Portfolio Investors) from emerging markets such as India.
Besides a US rate hike, the derivatives expiry slated for Thursday has caused some nervousness, as Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has reduced the lot size in futures and options (F&O) segment which has resulted in lower volumes.
This has indirectly rubbed on the trading dynamics of the cash segment.
