At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 18,203.40 up by 0.41%

Today, the NSE Nifty 50 commenced its trading session on a bullish note, scaling new heights and recording an impressive upward movement of 0.41 percent. As the day progressed, the index continued to exhibit its strength and resilience, ultimately culminating in a successful closure in the green zone. Notably, the Nifty index achieved a remarkable feat by surpassing the significant milestone of 18200, further solidifying its position as a robust and promising investment avenue.

The Nifty index encountered a day of volatility in today’s trading session. Initially, it commenced with a positive sentiment but later experienced a dip, entering negative territory during the first half of the session. However, the 20-day moving average, positioned at 18,108, served as a support level, preventing further downside. Notably, the Nifty witnessed a resurgence of robust buying interest, ultimately enabling it to conclude the day on a positive note. This recovery comes after a three-day period of consecutive declines, highlighting the resilience and strength exhibited by the market participants.

Despite encountering a sense of indecisiveness, the domestic market ultimately concluded the day with a favorable outcome. The buoyancy observed in the US market was driven by advancements in debt ceiling negotiations and an encouraging decline in jobless claims that surpassed expectations. Nevertheless, the potential for a robust US economy implies that the Federal Reserve might maintain higher policy rates for a prolonged period, signifying an elongated duration of elevated interest rates.

Furthermore, apprehensions surrounding the global economic outlook cast a shadow on market sentiments, overshadowing even the robust growth reported by China, which failed to have a substantial impact on bullish sentiments. In the near term, it is anticipated that the markets will remain volatile, primarily influenced by specific movements of individual stocks, as the earnings season gains momentum and takes center stage.

During early trade on Friday, the Indian rupee experienced a depreciation of 14 paise against the US dollar, reaching a level of 82.76.
