According to weekly numbers , This equity benchmark started the holiday-truncated week on Monday with heavy gains, as both the indices made fresh highs. However, after gaining a bullish momentum, the indices started consolidating; therefore, on Tuesday the Nifty ended almost flat while the Sensex ended in red.On Wednesday Nifty observed some heavy distribution as it gained one distribution day, while the Sensex also posted a loss of almost 25 points.

This week, as the Nifty crossed its previous resistance level of 10,175 on Monday and went on to make a new all-time high, we changed the market status to Confirmed Uptrend. Talking about the distribution day, today, the Nifty added one distribution day, thus taking the distribution day count to four in both the indices.

*A Look Back at Samvat 2073
All is well that ends well
Samvat 2073 was quite an unusual period for the Indian equity market. While uncertainty is a given in the world of stock markets, India’s frontline indices had to deal with a lot of unpredictability due to a variety of domestic and geopolitical issues.
Despite the clouds of uncertainty looming over the Indian stock market, it turned out to be an inspiring journey in the end. The Indian market overcame the odds of Trump’s unexpected presidential win, Modi government’s demonetisation drive, GST disruption, India-China border stand-off, lower economic growth, and growing concerns of a war between the U.S. and North Korea, to emerge triumphant.
Largely driven by an upbeat investor sentiment and burgeoning domestic inflows, Sensex and Nifty posted impressive gains of 16.6% and 18.2%, respectively, in Samvat 2073. The broader indices not only joined the party but also outperformed key composites with Nifty Midcap and Nifty Smallcap advancing 19.1% and 25.3%, respectively.
On the sectoral front, the metal, realty, and private bank stocks stole the show, while the pharma and PSU banking stocks performed poorly. All in all, it turned out to be a pretty profitable year for a majority of the sectors.
What’s in store for the Indian market?
Barring the demonetisation jolt in November 2016, the Indian stock market marched ahead without giving much heed to other issues. The 50-day moving average (red line in chart) provided crucial support throughout Nifty’s rally during Samvat 2073. While the index breached its 50-DMA on two occasions recently, it managed to retake the support line on both instances.
With the key indices hovering near all-time highs, the Indian market is currently in a Confirmed Uptrend. Nevertheless, the distribution day count of four each on Nifty and Sensex should not be taken lightly. Investors would be better off to keep their buying decisions reserved to high-quality names only.
From here, the ongoing Q2 earnings season could play an important role in affecting the market direction. After a decent rally in Samvat 2073, the market could rest for a while before resuming its uptrend if earnings do not meet market expectations. However, a better-than-expected Q2 earnings season could push the market higher in the near future.
Despite a distribution day count of four on Nifty, the alarm bells have not started ringing yet and therefore, we advise investors to remain on the lookout for quality growth stocks. From a portfolio management perspective, consider selling stocks that are showing signs of weakness in the form of a 50- or 200-day moving average breach on high volume. Such stocks could go into a sideways mode and hence it would make sense to free up some capital and deploy it to better opportunities.*
