On Friday, Nifty50 gapped up above 17,700 and made a new all-time high of 17,792. However, profit-booking was seen across markets, and the index fell more than 250 points from its all-time high. Except for Nifty Metal (-1.4%) and Realty (-0.9%), all sectoral indices closed higher. Nifty Media (+13.3%) was the top gainer, followed by financial-related indices, which advanced 3–5%. Of the 2,019 stocks traded, 576 advanced, 1,370 declined, and the rest remained unchanged.
The distribution day count currently stands at Two. Further, Nifty is now trading near its all-time high, above all its key moving averages. We would like the index to continue this trend. After such a sudden rally, one must also be prepared for some mild profit booking. In the process, if the index adds a couple of distribution days, stages a reversal, or breaches its key moving averages, 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.
