SGX Nifty Indicates Positive Opening; JSPL Sales Hits New High in March

Posted Date: April 06 2021
At 8:00am IST, the SGX Nifty Futures was trading at 14,716, compared with Nifty’s close of 14,637, yesterday.

Market status: Uptend Under Pressure

Distribution days: Seven

Global stock markets: Dow30, +1.1%; S&P 500, +1.4%; Nasdaq, +1.7%; Nikkei, -0.8%; Kospi, -0.2%

Yesterday, Nifty had a muted opening but quickly succumbed to selling pressure. It made a day’s low of 14,459 i.e., down over 400 points from the previous session’s close. In the process, the index closed below its 21- and 50-DMA. However, post noon, the index saw some buying at lower levels to close in the upper half. The session qualified as a distribution day as it fell more than 0.2% on higher volume compared with the previous session. Barring Nifty IT (+1.9%) and Metal (+0.9%), all the sectoral indices closed in the red. Financial related stocks dragged the market as they closed with losses of 3–4%. FIIs net sold shares worth Rs 932 crore, while DIIs net bought shares worth Rs 75 crore.

Nifty breached its 21- and 50-DMA, after hovering around its key moving averages in the past few weeks. Index breaching its moving averages is a sign of weakness. We will change the status to a Downtrend if Nifty doesn’t retake its 50-DMA and if market leaders show signs of deterioration in their price actions.
