NSE India: S&P Nifty — Daily Market Report for: Thursday (June 7, 2012)
(Based on the activity of the previous trading day) by Dominic Rebello
Review of the Previous day:
The Nifty rose substantially on Wednesday (June 06, 2012) a net 133.80 points (2.75%) and closed at the 4997 point level. The market opened up with a gap at the 4886 points level and that level itself was the low of the day. It then rose steadily during the session and registered the day’s high at the 5010 points level at 2.58 p.m. It then turned into a range bound movement until closing at the day. Hopes of a rate cut by RBI and strong positive global cues helped the index to remain above its previous close throughout the session. Sentiment was extremely bullish and amongst the 50 Nifty stocks 47 were gainers, while just 3 stocks closed in the red. All the sectoral indices closed in the green. Heavy buying was seen in auto, capital goods, power, banking, FMCG and metal stocks.
Volume (Qty shares) increased 38.41%. This change is substantial and indicates a wide participation by investors.
Overall Market Breadth on the NSE was positive. Amongst all the traded stocks, 1120 were gainers, 310 were losers and 72 remained unchanged.

Outlook for Today:
On Japanese candlestick patterns the index after having formed a doji pattern (indicating indecisiveness amongst investors) has formed a long white body candle on substantially higher volumes. In fact, yesterday's candle is almost like a white body Marubozu candle. (A White Marubozu forms when the open equals the low and the close equals the high). This is positive and indicates that the bias has shifted towards the buy side of the market.
Further, the index has crossed above the 5, 15 and 25 day’s moving averages in a single session. Moreover, the velocity parameters, which were negatively trended, have now turned positive. All these indicate a positive bias and the possibility of a further up move unfolding. Technically, since the downwards risk seems to have reduced, Investors may consider buying in small quantities in shares that are fundamentally sound and have a long- term potential.
