Distribution Day Count:

Nifty50: Five Nifty Midcap100: Four Nifty Smallcap100: Five

Global Stock Markets: Dow 30, -0.6%; Nasdaq, -0.3%; S&P 500, -0.3%; Nikkei, -0.9%; Kospi, -0.5%; Shanghai Composite, -0.5%.

Yesterday, Nifty gapped lower. It attempted to move higher and crossed 18,000 during the day, but failed to hold gains and closed 0.56% lower. As the volume was higher compared to the previous session, we marked the session as a distribution day. On the sectoral front, the action was mixed. Nifty Auto closed 0.7% higher. Nifty IT managed to closed in the green. Nifty Bank, Financial Services, Pharma, and Realty closed 0.5–1.5% lower.

The distribution day count currently stands at five. If the market succumbs to selling pressure and breaches its 50-DMA, we may change the market status to an Uptrend Under Pressure. Nifty is trading less than 0.5% above its 50-DMA. Reducing exposure to stocks breaking below their 21- or 50-DMA on higher volume is important.
