Midcaps Outperform But Nifty Flat - Is It Signal For Sell Off?

Some things are not adding up in Indian markets. Markets are flat with almost a negative bias. Yet the midcaps are performing well. That does not portend well.


Throughout the trading session there was a sense of indecisiveness in indices. Little gains accrued during continued buying in the first half of trading was sold into in the later half. Tug-of-war between bulls and bears was there for all to see, with no clear winner. As a result indices ended absolutely flat.

But the good news is that midcaps performed well and ended the day with some decent gains. That would come as relief for traders in that genre.

Only point of concern is that midcaps are generally the last to rally in a bull run. Does that mean we are at  the end of a bull run starting from 6900 to 7700 in Nifty? That will surely be the case if Nifty does not close near 7700 in next 2/3 trading sessions.
