Market status: Confirmed Uptrend

Global stock markets: Dow 30, +1.4%; S&P 500, +1%; Nasdaq, +0.7%; KOSPI, +1.2%; Nikkei, +1.8%; Hang Seng, +0.5%

Last week, Nifty continued to edge higher and gain more than 1.5%. It is now less than 1% away from its 200-DMA. It closed in the green for the fourth consecutive week. Nifty’s 50- and 100-DMA merged, and its 50-DMA is about to cross its 100-DMA, which is a bullish sign. On Friday, Nifty opened on a negative note and was volatile throughout the day. Barring Nifty Energy {-0.5%} and Media (-0.2%), all the sectoral indices closed higher. Nifty Metal (+3.5%) was the biggest gainer in the week, followed by Pvt Bank (+2.7%). On an MTD basis, both FIIs and DIIs were net sellers. FIIs’ net selling was Rs 2,000 crore, while DIIs’ net selling was Rs 655 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.
