Global stock markets: Dow30, +0.5%; S&P 500, +0.4%; Nasdaq, +0.1%; Nikkei, +0.2%; Kospi, +0.4%
Last week, Nifty was highly volatile and pared most of its Monday losses in the next three sessions. On Friday, it opened on a flat note and rose over 120 points intraday. But in the last hour, it booked profits and closed below its 21-DMA. On a weekly basis, barring Nifty Pharma (+1.8%), all sectoral indices closed in the red. Nifty PSU Bank (-6.9%) declined the most, followed by Realty (-5.7%) and Media (-5.3%).
We changed the market status to a Rally Attempt as Tuesday was a blue rally day (Day 1), and Nifty managed to stay above its recent low for two consecutive sessions. From here, 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 with a 1.5% or higher gain, with volume higher than the previous day. Should this occur, the focus will be on ideas breaking out of early-stage base patterns and showing the best relative strength with good accumulation. On the flip side, Nifty is still below its 50-DMA. If it breaches its recent low of 14,248, the market will be moved back to a Downtrend.
