Nifty Futures are currently at 11,329 and they lost 100 points from day high of 14,333. In fact, Nifty futures have not been able to hold onto any of their gains, expect during the very few rally days in the last 2 months. Every gain of 100 points is faced with sharp selling within the same day in the afternoon session. This indicates very weak market sentiment and lack of buying interest.
However, Nifty index is now above its 200 day SMA, which is a positive sign. But this needs follow up confirmation, and we need the Nifty futures to stay above 11,300 and ideally, they should move above 11,400.
