Daily Market Review
Market Status: Confirmed Uptrend
Markets reversed and put an end to the downward movement of the last six trading days. After finding support near 50-DMA, Nifty had a rebound from there. It formed a higher high in the hourly chart and retook its 21- and 200-DMA to close near the day’s high with solid gains. Today’s session will be considered as an additional follow-through day, as Nifty gained more than 1.5% with volume higher than the previous session. In the broader market, both Midcap and Smallcap closed with decent gains of 1.3% and 0.9%, respectively.
On the sectoral front, barring Nifty IT (-0.8%), all other sectoral indices closed in the green. Nifty bank and Nifty Finservice rallied more than 3% today. The advance-decline ratio was skewed towards advancers. Of the 2,131 stocks traded on the NSE, 964 advanced, 821 declined, and the rest remained unchanged.
Going forward, we would like Nifty to keep the momentum and hold above its 200-DMA and retake 100-DMA. Further, we would like to see decent advancement in market breadth which would signal increasing strength in the market. On the flip side, if Nifty registers additional distribution days, it will be a subtle sign of weakness in the market.
