Yesterday, Nifty started the session with mild gains of around 40 points and, within the first five minutes, made the day’s high of 18,012. It quickly succumbed to profit booking and turned negative. Trading was highly volatile and in negative territory for most of the session. There was a mixed reaction on the sectoral front. Nifty Realty (+3.6%) continues to be the top gainer, followed by Nifty PSU Bank (+2.4%).
Yesterday's session will be considered a distribution day as the fall is more than 0.2% on volume higher than that of session the previous day. Thus, the distribution day count has increased to five. However, two distribution days will expire today and in the next trading session. 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.
