Nifty retained its positive momentum for the third consecutive week. Last week, it gained 2.2% and moved closer to its 200-DMA (10,885). On Friday, it opened on a higher note and moved in a narrow range of 70 points during the day. The broader market indices, Nifty Midcap (+0.5%) and Smallcap (-0.1%) underperformed during the week.
The Indian market remains in a Confirmed Uptrend. If Nifty adds distribution days and breaches logical support levels, we may downgrade the market status to an Uptrend Under Pressure. It is prudent to only invest in stocks that have strong fundamentals (i.e., good sales, earnings, margins, etc.) and that are breaking out of sound base structures on heavy volume. The beauty of our CAN SLIM method is that we need not "expect," "hope," or "wish for" with respect to market action. We will take what the market gives us and continue to monitor unfolding conditions.
