Market status: Confirmed Uptrend

Distribution Day: Zero

Global stock markets: Dow 30, -0.6%; S&P, -0.5%; Nasdaq, -0.2%; Nikkei, -0.7%; Kospi, +0.1%; Hang Seng, +0.2%

Yesterday, Nifty gapped up more than 150 points. However, it quickly succumbed to selling pressure and gave up most of its opening gains. During the day, it stabilized at about 12,850. Currently, it is trading 9.4% and 20.0% above its 50- and 200-DMA, respectively. On the sectoral front, mixed reactions were observed. Nifty Metal (+2.5%) advanced the most, followed by Nifty PSU Bank (+2.2%) and other finance-related sectors. Market breadth remained in favor of advancers. FIIs’ net buying was Rs 4,905 crore, while DIIs’ net selling was Rs 3,829 crore.

Currently, we are in a Confirmed Uptrend and are open to adding new positions coming out of proper base formations. We will look for leadership among some good stocks to push the market up. On the flip side, tracking distribution days is crucial. An accumulation of distribution days can halt the uptrend.
