Yesterday, it was a never before trading session at NSE as trading came to a halt due to technical glitches. It was halted from 11:40am to 3:30pm, after which the session was extended till 5PM. Before the technical glitch, it was a volatile session but ended flat. In the extended session, Nifty rose sharply and hit 15,000 intraday. Barring Nifty IT (-0.1%), all the sectoral indices closed in the green. Financial-related sectors advanced the most as the government lifted an embargo on the grant of private businesses to private banks. Yesterday, FIIs were net buyers at Rs 28,729 crore, while DIIs were net buyers at Rs 230 crore.

The distribution day count decreased to five on Monday as one distribution day expired. A couple of more distribution days will expire by Monday next week. However, we may downgrade the status to an Uptrend Under Pressure if it falls on higher volume and the distribution day count increases. Without trying to predict and decode stories, we will take what the market gives and continue to monitor unfolding conditions.
