Distribution Day CountFive

It was a short week of trading due to Diwali. On a weekly basis, Nifty halted two weeks of decline. Trading volumes also remained below average through the week. Today being a weekly expiry, Nifty traded in a narrow range in the first hour of the session. Volatility gripped the market in the second half. As the index fell more than 0.2% on volume higher than that of yesterday, we will consider today’s session as a distribution day.

All sectoral indices closed higher for the week. Nifty Realty (+9.6%) was the top gainer, followed by Nifty PSU Bank (+3.1%). Of the 2,045 stocks traded, 886 advanced, 1,080 declined, and the remaining closed flat.

Today’s session will be considered a distribution day as the index fell more than 0.2% on volume higher than that of yesterday’s session. However, one distribution day expired today owing to the 25-trading-sessions rule. Thus, the distribution day count remains at five. One more distribution day will expire on Monday. If the market succumbs to selling pressure and breaches its 50-DMA, we may change the market status to an Uptrend Under Pressure. Reducing exposure to stocks breaking below their 21- or 50-DMA on higher volume is important.
