FIIs bought shares worth Rs 420.65 cr and Domestic Institutional Investors bought Rs 194.31 cr worth of shares in the Indian equity market on February 5.
The Nifty50 rallied for a fourth consecutive day in a row on February 5 and is trading well above crucial short and long-term moving averages. The index formed a bullish candle on daily charts and closed above 10,900 for the second day in a row.
One interesting thing which was visible on the charts was a buy signal triggered by MACD indicator on the daily charts. MACD stands for Moving Average Convergence/Divergence.
The MACD indicator is basically a refinement of the two moving averages system and measures the distance between the two moving average lines. The indicator gave a sell signal on January 24 and the index recorded an intraday low of 10,583 on January 29 before bouncing back towards 10,900 levels.
The index, which opened at 10,908, slipped to an intraday low of 10,886 before bouncing back towards 10900 levels. It hit an intraday high of 10,956 before closing the day at 10,934, up 22 points.
Analysts feel investors should continue holding long positions and add fresh positions only after a breakout above 10985 which could open room for the index towards higher levels of 11080-11200 levels.
