At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 19,310.15 down by 0.28%
The Indian benchmark indices witnessed a consecutive downturn over the course of a volatile trading session. Faced with subdued global cues, the market commenced with a pessimistic tone, sustaining a downward trend throughout most of the session. While a partial rebound materialized during the final hour, the session concluded with marginal setbacks.
Amidst this scenario, the NSE Nifty 50 commenced trading on a bearish note, experiencing a decline of 0.28%. The session’s conclusion found the index entrenched in the red zone. Notably, Nifty languished below the critical mark of 19350, outlining the prevailing challenges.
Global Bond Yield Surge Influences Equities markets worldwide, India included, are navigating the repercussions of a notable upswing in US bond yields. This surge has catalyzed currency devaluation across emerging markets, notably in China. As a response, investors are gravitating towards secure dollar-based investments, exiting higher-risk equity holdings.
Market Consolidation Amidst Economic Uncertainties India’s local markets seem poised for a continued consolidation phase, influenced by apprehensions about US and global interest rate escalations, coupled with mounting inflation and a decelerating Chinese economy. These factors collectively temper the enthusiasm for equities in the short term.
Tech Sector Woes Amplify Selling Pressure a stark decline in the technology-heavy Nasdaq index triggered a ripple effect, inciting a sell-off in domestic IT stocks. Other sectors similarly faced selling pressure, attributed to the prevailing weak global cues.

Indian Rupee Strengthens Amid Global Market Dynamics
The Indian rupee concluded the week on a positive note, benefiting from a decline in US treasury yields and a slight easing of the dollar’s strength. These factors provided relief after earlier concerns about the possibility of prolonged higher US interest rates had led to the rupee after reaching its lowest point earlier in the week.
The rupee’s daily performance showcased a modest increase of 0.05% against the US dollar, with a closing rate of 83.1025. However, over the entire week, the currency experienced a marginal dip of 0.31%, reflecting the underlying market volatility.
Conversely, the dollar index exhibited gains on Friday, aligning with its trajectory for a fifth consecutive week of appreciation. The greenback’s upward momentum was fueled by the demand for safer assets, driven by the anticipation that US treasury yields would remain elevated due to prevailing concerns about the Chinese economy.
