Yesterday, Nifty turned negative after a flat opening and stayed lower for the first 30 minutes of the session. It then turned positive and the up move continued throughout the session. It closed the session near the day’s high. Nifty closed in the green for the seventh consecutive session. However, yesterday’s volume was on the lower side. On the sectoral front, mixed reactions were observed. Nifty Metal (+2.1%) and Realty (+1.4%) were the top gainers. On the flip side, Nifty Media (-1.4%) and PSU Bank (-0.7%) were the top decliners. Advance-Decline ratio was in favor of advancers, as out of 2,306 traded stocks, 1,094 stocks advanced, 882 declined, and remaining closed flat.
Last week, Nifty hit an all-time high and is currently trading 4.1% and 5.5% above its 21- and 50-DMA, respectively. We would like the index to hold its 21-DMA and/or 50-DMA and trade above that. Without trying to predict and decode stories, we will take what the market gives and continue to monitor unfolding conditions. If the index falls further, adds a distribution day, and breaches its key moving averages, we may change the market status to an Uptrend Under Pressure. Focus on quality ideas emerging out of sound bases with RS line at or near new highs while reducing exposure to stocks breaking below key support levels.
