Global stock markets: Dow 30, +0.1%; S&P 500, -0.3%; Nasdaq, -0.7%; KOSPI, +0.6%; Nikkei, -0.3%; Hang Seng, -0.1%; Shanghai Composite, +0.1%.
Yesterday, after opening flat, Nifty advanced over 70 points to make an intraday high of 10,123. However, it quickly succumbed to selling pressure and closed the day 32bps lower. Nifty escaped a distribution day as today’s volume was lower compared with the previous session. Barring financial related sectors, all sectoral indices closed in the green. Nifty Media (+4.1%) and Nifty Pharma (+3.1%) were the major advancers. FIIs’ net buying was Rs 2,905 crore and DIIs’ net selling was Rs 847 crore.
The confidence in the current rally will build up if Nifty is able to trade above its 21-DMA for a few more sessions. In addition, Nifty’s 50-DMA starting to turn upward and the broader market participation in the rally is a good sign. We remain in a Confirmed Uptrend and are open to increasing risk selectively in quality names coming out of proper bases.
At the beginning of the move in the general market, there are usually a few stocks that have already completed bases and are breaking out. Often these early leaders will cluster into groups that may represent where the most institutional appetite exists. Ideally, this is where we try to "buy right." There are a few things that work to our favor when we do this. One is that these primary leaders usually have bigger upside moves and will lead throughout a cycle. A second is that the cushion we gain as the trend progresses allows us to truly capitalize on the move. O'Neil has said that if you can get through the first correction you are in the driver's seat. That cushion from "buying right" allows for a clear head when determining if normal volatility is a threat to your position or not.
