Last week, the market status was changed to an Uptrend Under Pressure due to a rise in distribution days and Nifty breaching its 21-DMA. Yesterday, Nifty made a new high and moved above the previous rally high of 14,754. Hence, we changed the market status to a Confirmed Uptrend. However, the distribution day count remains elevated at six. Nifty is more than 3.5% above its 21-DMA. If the 21-DMA is breached, we may downgrade the status to an Uptrend Under Pressure. Without trying to predict and decode stories, we will take what the market gives and continue to monitor unfolding conditions.
