At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 20,267.90 up by 0.67%

The NSE Nifty 50 commenced the new series on December 1st with remarkable strength, initiating the day positively and achieving a notable increase of 0.67% before concluding on a high note. Surpassing the 20,250 mark, it set a historic precedent, underpinned by investor optimism fueled by stronger-than-expected GDP figures. This surge was bolstered by extensive buying across various sectors, excluding the automotive domain. Continuing the upward momentum from previous sessions, this marked the fourth consecutive day of gains for India’s Nifty 50, reaching an unprecedented pinnacle. The optimism stemmed from accelerated economic growth in the September quarter, further enhancing positive sentiments regarding global interest rate dynamics.

India’s economic growth showcased exceptional resilience, expanding by 7.6% in the September quarter, surpassing both economists’ forecasts of 6.8% and the Reserve Bank of India’s estimated 6.5%. The manufacturing sector played a pivotal role in propelling this growth trajectory.

Renewed confidence among Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) coupled with favorable trends in European markets triggered frenzied buying, propelling the Nifty to soaring heights. India continues to shine as a beacon of stability amidst global uncertainty, leveraging robust GDP and manufacturing statistics, alongside external factors like decreasing US bond yields.

The positive short-term technical outlook for Nifty aligns with bullish trends, amplified by the surpassing GDP figures. Forecasts for FY24’s growth have surged, fostering an optimistic market sentiment. The government’s capital expenditure and heightened manufacturing activities notably boosted stocks in the capital goods and infrastructure sectors.

On a global scale, markets rallied on the anticipation that the European Central Bank (ECB) had potentially concluded its rate-hiking cycle, given the moderating inflation trends. Simultaneously, oil prices sustained a downward trajectory despite OPEC+ supply cuts, contributing to market fluctuations amidst a mix of global economic indicators.

India continues to maintain its position as the world’s fastest-growing major economy, with a GDP growth of 7.6% in the September quarter. This robust expansion, surpassing expectations, stems from strategic government spending and a resilient manufacturing sector.

Speaking of manufacturing, November witnessed continued vigor in India’s manufacturing sector.
