The stochastic oscillator on daily and weekly terms have been converging upwards but has been slightly indecisive on daily terms, bullish though in weekly terms.
While RSI on the daily chart has been converging to the price rallies to signal the strength in the buying interests, same has been the case on weekly terms and slightly indecisive on monthly terms.

On speculative grounds, at spot reference: 149.303 we advocate buying one-touch call options choosing strikes at 149.667 levels and aggressive bulls to bet on a journey towards next stiff resistance upto 150.420 levels.
Alternatively, on hedging grounds, with a view to arresting any downside risks, deploy shorts in futures contracts of mid-month tenors.
