The Nifty index experienced a day of considerable volatility in today’s trading session. Initially, it displayed a positive start with a gap up opening and even surpassed the seven-day range on the upside. However, as the day unfolded, the index encountered selling pressure at higher levels, leading to a subsequent sell-off. Consequently, it retraced back within its previous range, signifying a failure in the breakout attempt. This development highlights the dynamic nature of the market and the challenges faced by the Nifty index in sustaining its upward momentum.

Nifty 50 index commenced on a positive note, opening at a higher level. It displayed a gain of 0.15 percent throughout the trading session and concluded with a bullish stance. Notably, the Nifty index surpassed the significant milestone of 19400, exhibiting an upward trend.

Bank Nifty: Up by 0.06%

In today’s trading session, the Bank Nifty index displayed a favorable start as it opened in the positive territory. Throughout the day, it registered a gain of 0.06 percent and concluded with a bullish stance, closing at a notable level of 44,665.05. Furthermore, mirroring the positive market sentiment, the BSE Sensex, the benchmark index of the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), exhibited a rise of 0.25 percent and ended the day on a high note at 65,558.89, reaffirming the upward trajectory.

The domestic market rally witnessed today was fueled by strategic buying in the IT sector, characterized by contra bets. This surge in IT stock purchases was underpinned by factors such as stable profit margins, the emergence of new-generation business opportunities, and an enhanced pricing power resulting from the moderation in the value of the US dollar. Notably, the latest US inflation figures indicate a rapid approach towards the target levels set by the Federal Reserve (Fed).

Foreign Institutional Investors/Foreign Portfolio Investors (FII/FPI) made significant purchases with a total value of 10,128.06 crore rupees. Simultaneously, they also made sales worth 7,890.13 crore rupees, resulting in a net value of 2,237.93 crore rupees. On the other hand, Domestic Institutional Investors (DII) engaged in transactions with a buy value of 8,229.67 crore rupees and a sale value of 9,426.35 crore rupees on the same date. Consequently, the DII witnessed a net value of -1,196.68 crore rupees.

The global oil benchmark Brent exhibited a steady position above the $80 per barrel mark. This price trajectory was primarily influenced by the release of US inflation data, which indicated an upcoming moderation in the interest rate hike cycle within the largest economy globally. The prospect of cooling interest rates has positively impacted the oil market, contributing to the sustained pricing levels of Brent crude.

The Brent crude futures showcased an upward movement of 22 cents, reaching $80.33 per barrel, while the US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures demonstrated a gain of 11 cents, trading at $75.86. These price movements indicate a positive trend in the oil market, with both Brent and WTI crude prices experiencing incremental increases.

The Indian rupee concluded Thursday’s trading session on a positive note, marking the fourth consecutive session of gains. This upward movement was primarily attributed to the overall weakness observed in the US dollar. However, it’s important to note that the appreciation of the rupee was somewhat limited due to the demand for the US dollar from importers. These factors influenced the exchange rate dynamics, with the Indian rupee experiencing fluctuations against the US dollar.

The Indian rupee concluded the trading session at 82.0725 against the US dollar, exhibiting a slight decline from the previous day’s closing rate of 82.2475. However, it is worth noting that the rupee has displayed an overall appreciation of 0.8% throughout the week.
