SGX Nifty Indicates Flat Opening; Mindtree, Indiamart, and Rallis India to Report Q3 Earnings Today

Posted Date: January 18 2021
Market Preview

At 8:00am IST, the SGX Nifty Futures was trading at 14,434, compared with Nifty’s Friday close of 14,434.

Market status: Confirmed Uptrend

Distribution days: Three

Global stock markets: Dow 30, -0.6%; S&P 500, -0.7%; Nasdaq, -0.9%; Nikkei, -0.8%; Hang Seng, +0.5%; Kospi, -0.7%

On Friday, Nifty opened on a flat note and quickly turned negative. It was a highly volatile session as it fell more than 200 points intraday, paring most of the weekly gains. Nifty added a distribution day as it fell more than 0.2% on volume higher than that of yesterday’s session. However, the distribution day count remains at three as one day expired today. Broader market indices, Midcap (-1.1%) and Smallcap (-1.1%), closed lower on Friday.

With leadership broadening and indices above relevant intermediate term moving averages, we will continue to look for leadership-quality growth names to form entry points. If a pullback/consolidation happens, it will be crucial for Nifty to hold its 21-DMA. It is advised to closely review the existing positions and book profits in stocks that are extended from their moving averages and showing technical weakness. Also, tracking distribution days is crucial as rise in distribution days can halt the uptrend.
