On the flip side, Nifty Auto, Financial Service, and FMCG closed 0.2–0.5% lower.
Last week, three distribution days expired due to aging and one was added on Friday, bringing the total count to three. The decrease in the distribution day count is a good sign.

We may downgrade the status to an Uptrend Under Pressure if Nifty falls below its 50-DMA on higher volume and the distribution day count increases.
