Market status: Uptend Under Pressure
Distribution days: Six
Global stock markets: Dow30, -0.3%; S&P 500, +0.4%; Nasdaq, +1.5%; Nikkei, +1.2%; Hang Seng, +0.7%; Kospi, +0.7%
Yesterday, Nifty had a muted opening. It made a day’s high near the open and succumbed to selling pressure to close near the day’s low. In the process, the index closed below its 21- and 50-DMA. Despite falling more than 0.2%, the index escaped a distribution day as volume was lower compared with the previous session. In the broader market, Nifty Midcap and Smallcap outperformed, each closing with a gain of 0.4%.
On the sectoral front, performance was mixed. Nifty Realty (+1.7%) led the rally followed by Nifty PSU Bank and Nifty FMCG, which closed with gains of 1.3% and 1.0%, respectively. On the flip side, Nifty Financial Service, Nifty Bank, and Nifty Pvt Bank were the major decliners, which closed lower in the range of 1.5–2.0%. FIIs bought more than Rs 2 lakh crore of Indian equities in FY21. On the flip side, DIIs net selling was more than Rs 1.25 lakh crore.
The index is currently hovering around its key moving averages. From here, we would like the index to firmly trade above its key moving averages. On the flip side, we will change the status to a Downtrend, if one more distribution day is added or if Nifty makes a decisive breach of its key moving averages and if market leaders show signs of deterioration in their price actions.
