At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 23,516.00 down by 0.18%

The NSE Nifty 50 experienced a day of fluctuating fortunes on June 19, beginning positively but ultimately closing in the red, albeit above the crucial 23,500 mark. Indian benchmark indices navigated through a highly volatile session, showcasing mixed performance despite hitting fresh all-time highs intraday.

The Nifty started the day in the green but slid by 0.18%, closing at 23,516.00, marking a loss of 41.90 points. The session witnessed intense volatility, with the index gyrating between gains and losses throughout the trading hours. Mid and Smallcap segments initially led a correction, dragging the index lower, but a strong performance by banking counters helped it recover losses momentarily.

Despite a five-day winning streak being snapped, the overall trend remains positive. However, technical analysis reveals the formation of a bearish candlestick pattern, signaling a potential exhaustion of bullish momentum. The market action indicates the emergence of a Bearish Engulfing pattern, suggestive of caution despite the absence of a classical reversal pattern.

Nifty’s performance reflected a lackluster day, largely confined within the range of 23450 and 23650. However, sentiment continues to lean towards short-term bullish trades, supported by the index’s sustained position above the 55 exponential moving average (EMA) on the hourly chart.

Despite a late sell-off, both the benchmark Sensex and Nifty50 managed to achieve fresh record highs, primarily propelled by gains in private bank and IT stocks. This surge was fueled by the release of soft U.S. retail sales data, which heightened expectations of a Federal Reserve interest rate cut in September.

While market volatility persists, the overall sentiment remains cautiously optimistic, with investors closely monitoring global cues and technical signals for further insights into market movements. Stay updated with our daily reports for comprehensive analysis and insights into market trends.

Sensex Climbs Modestly: The broader market Sensex index also closed higher, gaining a more modest 0.05%. However, it did manage to reach a new high of 77,337.59 during the trading session.

Gold and Silver

Gold Holds Steady Amidst US Holiday and Rate Cut Speculation

Rangebound Trading: On Comex, gold prices traded within a narrow range of $2,327 to $2,335 per ounce. Similarly, the MCX in India saw gold fluctuate between Rs. 71,625 and Rs. 71,880 per 10 grams.

Potential Base Formation: Analysts suggest a possible base forming around $2,300-$2,315 per ounce, with resistance at $2,345-$2,360. A breakout from this range, either upwards or downwards, could signal a more significant price movement.

Fed Policy and US Elections: The Federal Reserve’s stance on interest rates remains a key factor influencing gold prices. While the Fed maintains a hawkish tone, recent US economic data like CPI and retail sales hints at potential rate cuts later in the year. Additionally, the upcoming US elections in the second half of 2024 could further impact investor sentiment towards gold.

Rupee Ends Lower Amid Market Volatility

Rupee Settles 1 Paisa Lower Against US Dollar
On Wednesday, the rupee pared its initial gains and settled 1 paisa lower at 83.44 (pro) against the US dollar, mirroring the choppy performance of the domestic equity markets at the end of the session. The local currency initially showed strength, opening at 83.39, and traded within a range of 83.34 to 83.48 during the session. Ultimately, it registered a slight decline from the previous close of 83.43.

The rupee’s gaining momentum was halted by a stronger US dollar and elevated crude oil prices in the global market. The firming of the American currency, coupled with the rise in crude oil prices, weighed on the local unit, contributing to its subdued performance.

The rupee exhibited volatility throughout the trading session, initially displaying strength but eventually succumbing to pressures as the dollar index found support near 104.80. Market analysts predict that the rupee will continue to trade within a volatile range of 83.25 to 83.60 against the US dollar.

Meanwhile, the dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a basket of six major currencies, edged higher by 0.01% to 104.88. Brent crude futures, the global oil benchmark, saw a minor decline of 0.13%, settling at $85.22 per barrel. These global market trends played a crucial role in the rupee’s performance.

The rupee’s marginal decline against the US dollar reflects the interplay of domestic and international market factors. Investors and market participants should brace for continued volatility, keeping an eye on global cues such as the dollar index and crude oil prices for further direction.
