Market Preview

At 8:00am IST, the SGX Nifty Futures was trading at 14,717, compared with Nifty’s Friday close of 14,529.

Market status: Confirmed Uptrend

Distribution days: Five

Global stock markets: Dow30, -1.5%; S&P 500, -0.5%; Nasdaq, +0.6%; Kospi, -2.8%; Hang Seng, +1%; Nikkei, +2.3%

Last week, Nifty started the week on a negative note to breach its 21-DMA on Monday. The next three sessions saw good signs of accumulation, which helped Nifty retake its 21-DMA. However, on Friday, it succumbed to a massive selloff, tracking various global cues. Friday’s fall was the biggest since the fall on May 4, 2020. Friday’s session qualified as a distribution day as volume was higher compared with the previous session. However, the distribution day count remained at five as one expired on the same day.

One more distribution day will expire today. A low distribution day count and the market back above its 21-DMA is a constructive set up. 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 21-DMA on higher volume and the distribution day count increases.
