At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 19,680.60 up by 0.04%

Experience the soaring performance of NSE Nifty 50 today! Witnessing a strong opening, the index displayed remarkable resilience throughout the day, overcoming fluctuations to ultimately secure a noteworthy 0.04 percent gain and conclude on a positive note. The closing bell rang with Nifty standing tall above the impressive mark of 19600.

As the crucial decision of the Federal Reserve’s policy loomed ahead, Indian indices remained relatively stagnant along the flat line. There was a notable rise in metal stocks, driven by China’s commitment to providing policy support to its realty sector. Additionally, the utilities sector experienced an upswing in anticipation of increased demand and an improvement in operating margin.

The recent downturn in the domestic market can be attributed to several factors, including a muted start to Q1 results, a reversal in FII activity, a rising dollar index, and an increase in crude oil prices.

The current signals suggest a likelihood of additional consolidation in the index, and the forthcoming monthly expiry of July month derivatives contracts is expected to maintain high volatility. Moreover, market participants will closely monitor the performance of the US market for guidance.

Rupee Slips 7 Paise to 81.88 Against Dollar Amidst Elevated Crude Oil Prices and Subdued Equities

In the foreign exchange market, the rupee initially gained ground but ultimately settled 7 paise lower at 81.88 against the US dollar on Tuesday. This decline in value was influenced by the impact of increased crude oil prices and a lackluster performance in the domestic equities, which dampened investor sentiments.

Forex traders highlighted that the US currency’s strengthening in the international market further added to the negative sentiment among investors.

The trading day commenced with the domestic unit opening at 81.74 against the dollar and reaching an early peak of 81.67 during the initial deals. However, the subsequent market conditions led to the rupee losing its early gains and finishing at 81.88 by the end of the day.

The global oil benchmark, Brent crude futures, experienced a slight decline of 0.18 per cent, settling at $82.59 per barrel.

Amidst a robust performance of Western and Asian currencies, the Indian rupee witnessed a gap-up opening. However, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) might have intervened in the market, coupled with a surge in dollar demand from hedgers, resulting in the erasure of the initial gains.
