SGX Nifty Indicates Negative Opening; Power Grid and Tube Investment to Report Results Today

June 17 2021
At 8:15 am IST, SGX Nifty Futures was trading at 15,661, compared with Nifty’s close of 15,767 yesterday.
Market Pulse: Confirmed Uptrend
Distribution Day Count: Two
Global stock markets: Dow30, -0.8%; S&P 500, -0.5%; Nasdaq, -0.2%; Kospi, -1.4%; Nikkei, -1.4%; Shanghai Composite, -0.2%
Yesterday, Nifty started the session on a flat note and quickly started to fall. After noon, it observed buying at the dip, but a sell-off in the last hour made Nifty ended near the day’s low. Action qualified as a distribution day as the fall was more than 0.2% on volume higher than Tuesday’s session. It was a broad-based sell-off as broader market indices Nifty Midcap (-0.9%) and Smallcap (-0.5%) also closed in the red. Barring Nifty FMCG (+0.6%) and IT (+0.3%), all the sectoral indices closed lower. Nifty Media (-2.9%) and Realty (-1.3%) declined the most. FIIs and DIIs were net sellers at Rs 870 crore and Rs 875 crore, respectively.
Addition of distribution days is a sign of weakness in the market. However, the count remained at two as one distribution day expired yesterday. If the index falls, 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 RS line at or near new highs while reducing exposure to stocks breaking below key support levels.
