In a short week of trading due to Diwali. Nifty halted two weeks of decline. Trading volume also remained below average through the week. On Wednesday, which marked a weekly expiry, Nifty traded in a narrow range in the session’s first hour. Volatility gripped the market in the second half. All sectoral indices closed higher for the week. Nifty Realty (+9.6%) was the top gainer, followed by Nifty PSU Bank (+3.1%). Of the 2,045 stocks traded, 886 advanced, 1,080 declined, and the remaining closed flat. However, in Thursday’s Mahurat Trading, Nifty remained green throughout the session and ended higher by 0.5%.

Wednesday’s session will be considered a distribution day as the index fell more than 0.2% on volume higher than Tuesday's session. However, one distribution day expired on Wednesday owing to the 25-trading-session rule. Thus, the distribution day count remains at five. One more distribution day will expire today. If the market succumbs to selling pressure and breaches its 50-DMA, we may change the market status to an Uptrend Under Pressure. Reducing exposure to stocks breaking below their 21- or 50-DMA on higher volume is important.
