Market Preview

At 8:00am IST, the SGX Nifty Futures was trading at 11,831, compared with Nifty’s Friday close of 11,763.

Market status: Rally Attempt

Global stock markets: Dow 30, +0.4%; S&P, +0.01%; Nasdaq, -0.4%; Nikkei, +1.1%; Hang Seng, +0.8%

On Friday, the index traded in a slightly narrow range. It advanced 90 points and closed near the day’s high. Volume was lower than the previous session. In the broader market, both Nifty Midcap and Smallcap showed outperformance and advanced 1.1% and 1.4%, respectively.

On the sectoral front, barring Nifty IT (-0.1%) and Nifty Media (-0.4%), all the sectoral indices closed in the green. Nifty Metal (+3.4%) advanced the most, followed by Nifty Realty and Nifty Pvt Bank which rose 2.6% and 2.1%, respectively.

Looking forward, we would prefer to see a follow-through day before shifting the market to a Confirmed Uptrend. (A follow-through day is a solid up session, generally a 1.5% or higher gain, with volume being higher than the previous day). Should this occur, the focus will be on ideas that show the best relative strength with good accumulation. Stocks that recover the quickest tend to lead the next run. On the flip side, if Nifty breaches its recent low of 10,790, the market will be moved back to a Downtrend.
