Market status: Confirmed Uptrend

Global stock markets: Dow 30, +1.4%; S&P 500, +0.6%; Nasdaq, +0.5%; KOSPI, +1.3%; Nikkei, +0.1%; Hang Seng, -1.2%

After a gap-up opening, Nifty remained in positive momentum in the first hour of trade yesterday. The index slipped more than 150 points from its intraday high but managed to close in positive territory. Volume was higher compared with yesterday’s session when selling pressure was high.

Though benchmark indices were under pressure, Nifty Midcap (+0.6%) and Smallcap (+1.1%) progressed well. Market breadth was skewed toward advancers. Of 2,164 stocks traded, 1,156 advanced, 664 declined, and the remaining traded flat. On the sectoral side, Nifty Metal (+4.2%) and Auto (+2.1%) outperformed. For the rest of the sectors, the action was mixed and muted. Nifty Bank, Financial Services, and IT closed in the green, while Nifty FMCG and Pharma closed in the red.

Nifty closed more than 1% above its upward trending 21-DMA (10,980). We would like to see Nifty hold its 21-DMA. In case the distribution day count increases and Nifty breaches its 21- and 200-DMA, we may downgrade the market to an Uptrend Under Pressure.
