Bank Nifty

The Nifty Banking sector had some gainers and some losers for the day.

The gainers included IDFC First Bank with a 3.79% increase, AU Bank with a 3.63% increase, Punjab National Bank with a 3.01% increase, Federal Bank with a 2.86% increase and Bank of Baroda with a 2.46% increase. These results suggest that some banking stocks performed better for the day.

The ongoing instability in the global market is causing the domestic market to remain volatile in both directions. However, the domestic market ended on a positive note, thanks to significant gains in both the US and European markets. This volatility is expected to persist until the global banking system fully recovers from the turmoil, and the Fed confirms its decision to pause rate hikes.


Bearish market condition in both Wall Street and Dalal Street due to various factors such as the US Fed’s decision to raise interest rates, changes in mutual fund taxation laws, and news related to the Adani group. As a result, the market breadth and other market parameters have moved into the deep correction zone.

However, despite the turbulent times, large-cap companies have shown an improvement in their SR score. It is not entirely clear what you mean by SR score, but it could be referring to a company’s sustainability rating or social responsibility score.

In any case, it is possible that these large-cap companies have been able to weather the market storm better than smaller companies due to their strong fundamentals, financial stability, and brand reputation. It is also possible that investors have gravitated towards these companies as a safe haven in uncertain times, driving up their stock prices and improving their overall market performance.
