At 8:00 am IST, SGX Nifty Futures was trading at 15,460, compared with Nifty close of 15,338 yesterday. Market Pulse: Confirmed Uptrend
Distribution Day Count: Three Global stock markets: Dow30, +0.4%; S&P 500, +0.1%; Nasdaq, -0.01%; Kospi, +0.7%; Nikkei, +2%; Shanghai Composite, -0.1% Yesterday, Nifty opened muted but gained strength during the session and moved above 15,350. The volatility was high due to monthly F&O expiry. After moving to and fro, Nifty closed 0.2% higher. Volume was comparatively high. Nifty is now less than 100 points below its all-time high. Broader market indices outperformed benchmark indices. Barring Nifty Realty (-1.2%) and Pharma (-0.2%), all other sectoral indices closed in the green. Nifty PSU Bank closed 2.8% higher. Nifty IT (1.2%) continues positive momentum after leading stocks like TCS and Infosys reclaimed their 50-DMA yesterday. The advance-decline ratio was in favor of advancers. Of the 2,259 stocks traded, 1,024 advanced, 893 declined, and the rest remained unchanged. Nifty is trading 3% and 4% above its 21- and 50-DMA, respectively. Last week, Nifty retook its 50-DMA, did not add a distribution day, and registered an additional follow-through day, which are positive signs. We would like the index to hold its 50-DMA and trade above that. Without trying to predict and decode stories, we will take what the market gives and continue to monitor unfolding conditions. If the index falls further, adds a distribution day, and breaches its key moving averages, we may change the market status to an Uptrend Under Pressure. Focus on quality ideas emerging out of sound bases with relative strength line at or near new highs while reducing exposure to stocks breaking below key support levels.
