Yesterday, Indian markets had a gap-up opening wherein Nifty opened about 100 points higher and traded in a narrow range compared with the normal daily traded range. Last hour buying helped Nifty to close near the day's high. It closed above 11,000, the level that was breached in March. Broader market indices, Nifty Midcap (+0.9%) and Smallcap (+1.2%), closed higher for the day.

On the sectoral front, barring Nifty Pharma (-1.6%), all the indices closed in the green. Nifty IT (+2.6%) was the biggest gainer, followed by financial-related sectors. FIIs’ net buying was Rs 1,708 crore while DIIs’ net selling was Rs 1,522 crore.

The Indian market remains in a Confirmed Uptrend. However, things can change quickly due to high volatility. We are operating in an uncertain environment where information is distributed unevenly, and it is an environment where outside forces, either intentionally or unintentionally, affect prices across various time frames. We will continue to monitor the behavior of leading stocks and keep an open mind as to how it unfolds. We will wait for solid entry points before buying.
