Daily Market Review

Market Status: Rally Attempt

The Nifty (+1.2%) and the Sensex (+1.1%) posted strong gains after consistent losses in recent trading sessions. The Nifty Midcap gained 1% and Smallcap was up 1.1%.

On sectoral front, Nifty Metal (+2.8%) was the top gainer supported by Hindalco Industries and Jindal Steel & Power. Nifty IT gained 1.8% after ending weak in yesterday’s session whereas Nifty PSU Bank (+1.7%) continued its gains.

The market status remained unchanged. We’ll look for a legitimate follow-through day after which we’ll change the market status to a Confirmed Uptrend. We will downgrade the market to a Downtrend if it breaches the 10,583.60 level (low of Day 1 of the attempted rally).

The advance-decline ratio was in favor of gainers. Of the 2,064 stocks traded on the NSE, 1,092 advanced, 636 declined, and 336 remained unchanged.
