The Indian market remains in a Confirmed Uptrend. However, things can change quickly due to high volatility. We are operating in an uncertain environment where information is distributed unevenly, and it is an environment where outside forces, either intentionally or unintentionally, affect prices across various time frames. We will continue to monitor the behavior of leading stocks and keep an open mind as to how it unfolds. We will wait for solid entry points before buying.
