Market Pulse Confirmed Uptrend
Distribution Day Count: Three
After succumbing to a fag-end selloff last week, it gapped higher today and moved above its 21-DMA. It made an intraday high of 15,109 but staged a reversal and closed below 15,000. The volume was comparatively lower. On the sectoral front, Nifty Bank was very volatile. It shed the opening hour gains and closed 0.2% higher. Nifty IT, Metal, and Pharma closed 0.3–1.0% higher. On the flip side, Nifty Auto, Financial Service, and FMCG closed 0.2–0.5% lower. Advance-decline ratio was in favor of advancers.
Last week, three distribution days expired due to aging and one was added on Friday, after which the total count stands at three. The decrease in 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.
