|Nifty MidCap 50||11,613.75||+59.20||+0.51%|
|Nifty SmallCap 50||6,228.30||+31.85||+0.51%|
At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 19,425.35 up by 0.15%
In a challenging trading session, the NSE Nifty 50 demonstrated remarkable resilience. It began on a subdued note but managed to close in the green, marking a 0.15% increase and surpassing the 19,400 mark. The benchmark indices faced periods of decline, but the market exhibited a strong rebound, largely driven by robust buying interest in banking, financial, and oil & gas stocks.
A noteworthy aspect was the outperformance of broader market indices compared to their headline counterparts. This outperformance was influenced by optimism regarding a potential reduction in retail inflation, alleviating concerns among investors. The festive atmosphere of Diwali and consistent inflows from mutual funds further bolstered market sentiment.
Amidst selling pressure affecting Asian and European markets, selective buying played a pivotal role in guiding Indian markets toward a marginal gain. Concerns persisted regarding foreign fund outflows, especially as volatile US treasury yields prompted overseas investors to retreat from emerging markets.
In terms of technical analysis, a small positive candle on the daily chart signaled the possibility of an upside bounce within the confines of a range-bound movement. Additionally, rotational buying across heavyweight stocks contributed to the index’s resilience during a phase of consolidation.
As the Indian market remains steadfast amid global uncertainties, including rising bond yields and inflation concerns, it underscores the nation’s confidence in effectively managing October’s inflation levels and anticipates a positive revision in Q1FY24 GDP growth.
