Market Pulse Confirmed Uptrend

After a gap-up opening, Nifty made a high of 11,337. However, the index staged a reversal and fell about 100 points off highs.

The Indian market remains in a Confirmed Uptrend. We would like to see fresh names flexing their muscles for a sustainable rally. Finding favorable entries into powerful breakouts may be the best use for new money in the current market. However, things can change quickly due to high volatility. We are operating in an uncertain environment where information is distributed unevenly, wherein outside forces, either intentionally or unintentionally, affect prices across various time frames. We will continue to monitor the behavior of the market and keep an open mind as to how it unfolds.
