Yesterday, Nifty started the session on a positive note and made an intraday high of 18,112. It then remained volatile throughout the day. However, the index traded in a narrow range of 125 points. Banking and Finance stocks were top decliners with HDFC Bank and HDFC declining 1.7% and 1.4%, respectively. The broader market indices continued to outperform the benchmark. Nifty Midcap and Smallcap closed in the green with gains of 1.2% and 0.5%, respectively. Sectoral indices were mixed with Nifty Auto and PSU Bank advancing 1% and 0.8%, respectively. Meanwhile, Nifty Financial Services and Metal declined 0.7% and 0.3%, respectively.

One distribution day expired yesterday due to the 25-trading-session rule. The distribution day count now stands at four. 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.
