Yesterday, Nifty opened slightly higher and hit a fresh all-time high of 15,778. Within the first hour, it lost around 100 points and made a low of 15,680. As the session progressed, Nifty traded higher with volatility. Of Nifty50 stocks, 54% advanced. On the sectoral front, there was a mixed action. Nifty IT (+1.2%) advanced the most, followed by Media (+0.9%) and Pharma (+0.9%). On the flip side, financial-related indices closed 1.0–1.5% lower. FIIs were net buyers at Rs 1,422 crore, while DIIs were net sellers at Rs 1,640 crore.

Nifty making a new high, the broader market back in momentum, distribution day count down to two, and no distribution day after May 11 are positive signs for a sustainable rally. However, without trying to predict and decode stories, we will take what the market gives and continue to monitor unfolding conditions. If the index falls further, adds a distribution day, and breaches its key moving averages, we may change the market status to an Uptrend Under Pressure. Focus on quality ideas emerging out of sound bases with RS line at or near new highs while reducing exposure to stocks breaking below key support levels.
