The market breadth of Indian equities remained negative for the second day on the NSE cash segment. FIIs continued as net buyers for the 10th day in a row, while DIIs remained net sellers for the 2nd day on the equity cash segment. The market internals of global equities remains positive across all timeframes. However, breadth negative yesterday. 4% (previous 4%) of the global equities scaled to 52-week highs, while 1% (previous 2%) of them hit fresh 52-week lows."
