At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 19,528.80 up by 0.48%
The day’s trading session was marked by dynamic fluctuations in the stock market. It commenced with a promising start, only to later surrender some gains. However, a robust surge in purchasing activity in the middle of the session propelled the indices upward, culminating in a near-high closing.
In a remarkable streak, the benchmark indices displayed resilience for the second consecutive session. The Nifty comfortably maintained its position above the 19,500 mark, buoyed by enthusiastic buying across diverse sectors. Notably, the Nifty began the day on a positive note, sustaining its upward trajectory and concluding in the green with a 0.48 percent gain.
The Nifty’s sustained presence in the bullish zone underscores its ability to maintain levels above the channel breakout point, reflecting an enduring optimistic trend.
The market’s upward surge found support from various factors. The metals sector benefited from fresh stimulus support in China aimed at stabilizing its property sector, while information technology (IT) stocks surged on mounting expectations of the US Federal Reserve pausing its monetary tightening cycle.
Furthermore, favorable domestic macroeconomic data releases contributed to the market’s positive momentum. Simultaneously, an observable increase in the US unemployment rate has solidified expectations of a pause in interest rate hikes, reinforcing overall positive sentiment, bolstered by favorable global indicators.
Bank Nifty: Up by 0.32%
The Bank Nifty has displayed strong and sustained buying interest, continuing the positive momentum from the previous trading session. A notable achievement for the Bank Nifty is its ability to maintain a close above both the 20-day and 40-day moving averages, signaling inherent strength and resilience in the market.
The Bank Nifty commenced the day on a positive note with an opening in the green. It extended its gains, posting an increase of 0.32 percent and ultimately closing in the green at 44,578.30. In a similar vein, the BSE Sensex also had a positive day, registering a gain of 0.37 percent and concluding strongly at a high of 65,628.14.
In terms of sector performance, the Metal sector witnessed significant upward movement, surging by 2.28%. Within this sector, National Aluminium Company Ltd. exhibited remarkable growth, recording an impressive gain of 6.35%. Likewise, Steel Authority Of India Ltd. displayed robust performance, securing a gain of 5.83%.
On the flip side, the Consumer Durables sector experienced a decline of 0.22%. Within this sector, Bata India Ltd. faced a loss of -1.61%, while V-Guard Industries Ltd. also experienced a downturn with a loss of -1.26%.
The Nifty Banking sector had some gainers and some losers for the day.

These results suggest that some banking stocks performed better for the day.
On Monday, the Indian rupee closed slightly weaker but still managed to outperform other Asian currencies, which depreciated following an increase in the yield of the 10-year US Treasury bonds on Friday. Despite some softening in US economic data over the past week, the US dollar displayed resilience.
The rupee concluded the trading session at 82.7475, experiencing only a minor change from its previous rate of 82.7150. Notably, its Asian counterparts faced a decline in value against the US dollar.
The tranquil trading session for the local currency can be attributed, in part, to the absence of cash demand for the US dollar due to the Labor Day holiday observed in the United States on Monday.
However, it’s important to keep an eye on the potential impact of rising crude oil prices on the rupee. Brent crude futures reached $88.43, marking their highest point in over six months on Friday. Given India’s reliance on oil imports, sustained oil price increases can exert downward pressure on the rupee’s exchange rate, affecting the country’s trade balance and current account.
