Distribution Day Count:

Nifty50: Four Nifty Midcap100: Three Nifty Smallcap100: Six

Last week, Nifty started on a positive note as it closed 0.9% higher on Monday and reclaimed its 21-DMA. It was then down in three consecutive sessions on low volume. On Friday, the index reclaimed its 21-DMA. After a volatile first hour, it trended up and closed above 18,100. It was a mixed action on the sectoral front. Nifty IT (+2.8%) and Energy (+2.7%) were the top performers for the week. Financial-related sectors declined the most. On Friday, FIIs and DIIs net buying was Rs 511 crore and Rs 550 crore, respectively.

Nifty reclaiming its 21-DMA is a good sign as it opens up possibilities for another upward move. The distribution day count currently 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. Nifty is trading less than 1% above its 50-DMA. Reducing exposure to stocks breaking below their 21- or 50-DMA on higher volume is important.
