At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 18,398.85 up by 0.46%

NSE Nifty 50 commenced its journey on an elevated note, soaring to great heights with a remarkable surge of 0.46 percent. As the trading session reached its denouement, the index gracefully concluded its upward trajectory, elegantly settling in the verdant territory. The Nifty, with its resplendent performance, approached the milestone of 18400, leaving an indelible mark on the financial landscape.

In a triumphant feat, the Nifty has achieved a decisive close above the upper threshold of 18,350, signifying a breakthrough from a period of sideways consolidation. This breakout has tilted the balance of power in favor of the bulls, setting the stage for a potential continuation of the positive momentum. To navigate such a situation with finesse, an ideal trading strategy would involve riding the upward trend while implementing a trailing stop-loss mechanism.

The domestic benchmark indices continue their resolute march forward, propelled by a confluence of favorable factors. Notable among these are the decline in inflation levels, the steady influx of foreign investments, and the anticipation of robust quarter-on-quarter earnings growth, courtesy of the downturn in global commodity prices. The domestic consumer price index (CPI) inflation surpassed expectations, registering an impressive 4.7%, while the wholesale price index (WPI) inflation witnessed a significant decline of 0.92%. These developments reaffirm the astute decision of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to maintain its stance on rate hikes.
