NAV Prop Up to ETF selling. Bharti Airtel – Contrarian Bounce ?

There was a time many years back when we would see a jump up in last 30 minutes of a Quarter End or Year End in Nifty or in certain illiquid stocks with high institutional holding. This was to prop up the NAV.

The current structure of the market has changed to automated ETF Flows and we are now starting to see high volumes in last 30 mins on the last day of the month.

Will keep this a small post with a few charts.


FII Figures

-3395 cr on 31st Aug

Lets look at the price action in last 30 mins on last 2 instances.

Nifty - A 100 point down tick in 3-5 mins and 200 points in last 20-30 mins on 29th Jan and 26th Feb
