Yesterday, Nifty, after a gap-up opening, found resistance near its 50-DMA. The index traded toward the day's low of 11,181 and closed the volatile trading session near the lower half of the trading range. Volume was lower than that of the previous session. Further, we changed the market status to a Rally Attempt as Friday was a blue rally day (Day 1) and Nifty managed to stay above its Day 1 low for two consecutive sessions. In the broader market, both Midcap and Smallcap closed 0.2% and 0.3% lower, respectively. On the sectoral front, mixed reactions were observed. Nifty Metal (+2%) was up the most. On the flip side, Nifty FMCG (-1.5%) and PSU Bank (-2.2%) were the major two decliners.Looking forward, we would prefer to see a follow-through day before shifting the market to a Confirmed Uptrend. (A follow-through day is a solid up session, generally a 1.5% or higher gain, with volume being higher than the previous day). Should this occur, the focus will be on ideas that show the best relative strength with good accumulation. Stocks that recover the quickest tend to lead the next run. On the flip side, if the Nifty breaches its recent low of 10,790, the market will be moved back to a Downtrend.
