Yesterday, Nifty gapped higher by almost 100 points and gained more strength in the opening hour. It came close to its all-time high of 15,901, but failed to make a new high. However, Sensex made a new all-time high of 53,057. After the opening hour, the market gradually came under selling pressure and surrendered gains. The broader market also failed to hold its opening gains.
On the sectoral front, Nifty Bank reversed more than 400 points from its intraday high, dragging the index down. Barring Nifty Auto (+1.2%) and IT (+0.5%), all other sectoral indices closed flat to negative.
The distribution day count currently stands at three. If the index falls further, adds a distribution day, and breaches its key moving averages, we may change the market status to an Uptend Under Pressure. Focus on quality ideas emerging out of sound bases with RS line at or near new highs while reducing exposure to stocks breaking below key support levels.
