Market Pulse: Confirmed Uptrend Distribution Day Count: Two Global stock markets: Dow30, +0.3%; S&P 500, +0.1%; Nasdaq, -0.3%; Kospi, +0.8%; Nikkei, +2% Yesterday, Nifty gapped higher and managed to hold gains. It advanced further in the last hour and closed near the day’s high. Volume was relatively low. Nifty also reclaimed its 21-DMA and is now trading less than 1% below its 50-DMA. The broader market was also in momentum. Nifty Next50 is now only about 2% below its all-time high. On the sectoral front, barring Nifty Realty (-1%), all other sectors closed in the green. Nifty Pharma (+4%) was the top gainer, followed by Nifty Bank (+1.5%). FIIs sold equities worth Rs 1,110 crore while DIIs sold shares worth Rs 240 crore. Looking ahead, without trying to predict and decode stories, we will take what the market gives and continue to monitor unfolding conditions. If Nifty falls further and adds a couple of more distribution days, we may change the market status to an Uptrend Under Pressure. On the flip side, if Nifty reclaims its 50-DMA and moves higher, stocks that are breaking out of consolidation with higher relative strength and superior fundamentals can do well. Continue to trim or avoid ideas lagging and/or breaking down below major moving averages. Key Results Today: ADANIPOWER, BLUESTARCO, HEROMOTOCO, SOLARA, TATACONSUM, and others.
