HUL, Hindalco, and More: Short Buildup Detected in 5 F&O Stocks

In Thursday’s trading, five stocks showed a new increase in short positions. Short selling happens when traders expect a stock’s price to drop. They sell the stock without owning it, hoping to buy it back later at a lower price.

When a stock’s price falls and the open interest increases, it indicates a short build-up. This signal is more reliable if trading volume also goes up as the stock price falls.


Sun TV’s price fell by 2.46%, and open interest increased by 2.11%.

Hindustan Unilever dropped 2.29%, with a 1.26% increase in open interest.

Hindalco’s price declined by 2.1%, and open interest rose by 0.56%.

Ipca Labs saw a 1.9% price drop, coupled with a 3.68% increase in open interest.

Asian Paints fell by 1.73%, and open interest went up by 4.67%.

For traders, it’s important to check for any bearish crossovers when open interest rises during a downward move. This means the stock price falls below its 20, 50, or 100-day moving average. Also, watch out for any significant increase in long positions in far-out-of-the-money put options, indicating a possible downside.
