The Nifty could immediately trade in a 1.70% range either side from 18200 with a bias on the downside, weekly options data show. The range for the market based on the combined value of the 18200 call and put expiring on October 28 is 17900-18500. The bias, going by the open interest put call ratio of 0.79, is on the downside,indicating traders have sold more call options than puts on the Nifty, expecting the market to decline further and gobbling up the premiums received by selling calls to the option buyers.

And for the coming session, the trading spot band is between 18000 and 18400,which means further upsides are likely once the immediate resistances of 18400 are taken out and weakness could emerge if the supports of 18000 are broken.
