Daily Market Review

Market Status: Uptrend Under Pressure

Today’s action was strong as the Nifty and the Sensex advanced 3.7% and 3.8%, respectively. The market participants cheered the outcome of exit polls, which were declared post final phase of elections.

On the sectoral front, Nifty PSU Bank (+7.9%), Realty (+5.7%), and Financial Service (+4.6%) are the major movers.

The advance-decline ratio was in favor of advancers. Of the 2,112 stocks traded on the NSE, 1,477 advanced, 323 declined, and 312 remained unchanged.

Currently, the market is in an Uptrend Under Pressure. However, in the last three trading sessions, Nifty advanced strongly, and almost made a new high in today’s session. We might change the status to a Confirmed Uptrend once the previous high (11,856) is retaken.
