Yesterday, Nifty gapped higher in the morning, but slipped around 200 points from the opening hour high. However, in the last couple of hours, it staged an upside reversal and reclaimed its 21-DMA, closing near 15,100. Volume was comparatively higher. On the sectoral front, there was mixed action. Nifty Bank and Financial Services were the top gainers. Kotak Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, and HDFC closed 2.5–3.0% higher. Nifty IT closed more than 1% higher. On the flip side, Nifty Metal was down more than 2%. The selling pressure was high in the broader market.

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. However, without trying to predict and decode stories, we will take what the market gives and continue to monitor unfolding conditions. 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.
