At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 20,096.60 up by 1.04%

The NSE Nifty 50 demonstrated a robust start, surging by 1.04% at the opening bell and maintaining an upward trajectory throughout the trading session. This notable ascent marked a significant achievement as the Nifty crossed the 20,000 mark, a milestone reached after a hiatus of two months. Positive global cues and substantial buying activity in heavyweight stocks underpinned this upward trend.

Commencing with a gap-up opening above 19,950, the day witnessed continued momentum, propelling the Nifty beyond 21,100. This surge was fueled by widespread buying across diverse sectors, excluding realty. Following a breakout from the previous session, the market sustained strong gains, escalating by over a percentage point. The Nifty exhibited resilience, settling near the day’s peak at 20,096.60 levels.

This impressive market ascent found support in multiple factors, including the robust listing gains from ongoing IPOs and dovish sentiments expressed by US Federal Reserve officials, fostering expectations of imminent rate cuts. The rise in Mid & Small caps, coupled with declines in US bond yields and a softened Dollar index, echoed this sentiment. Reduced yields attracted foreign funds towards emerging markets. Notably, sectors like Indian IT, automotive, banking, and oil & gas played pivotal roles in propelling the market upward, while real estate exhibited a slowdown after achieving record highs.

Looking ahead, investor focus remains keenly fixed on pivotal events such as the impending exit poll, the OPEC+ meeting, and India’s GDP data. These events are anticipated to significantly influence the market’s near-term trajectory, guiding investor sentiment amid evolving global and domestic dynamics.

Bank Nifty: Up by 1.56%

The market displayed remarkable strength as the Bank Nifty surged by 1.56%, closing at 44,566.45, while the BSE Sensex rose by 1.10%, concluding at a high of 66,901.91. Bulls orchestrated a robust comeback, driving the Bank Nifty up by over 700 points, solidifying its stance in a formidable buy mode, supported by a significant base within the 44300-44200 zone, reinforcing bullish sentiment.

Simultaneously, the BSE market cap reaching the $4 trillion mark signifies a substantial shift, signaling a renewed momentum in the stock market. The market’s rally is attributed to robust Q2 earnings and a decline in crude oil prices. While domestic liquidity contributed to stabilization, the absence of foreign fund inflows, due to elevated US bond yields, posed a challenge.

In the sectorial landscape, the Auto sector displayed impressive growth, surging by 1.63%. Hero Motocorp Ltd. led the charge with a remarkable gain of 3.20%, closely trailed by Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. with a commendable 3.06% increase. Conversely, the Realty sector experienced a downturn, emerging as the top loser with a decline of 0.50%. The Phoenix Mills Ltd. faced a setback, witnessing a decline of -2.95%, alongside Swan Energy Ltd., which saw a decline of -2.68%.

Indian Rupee Shows Resilience Amid Market Volatility

The Indian rupee showcased a resilient streak, marking its second consecutive session of gains against the US dollar, settling at 83.32 (pro), up by 2 paise. This uptrend was primarily attributed to robust equity market investments and an influx of foreign funds, bolstering the rupee’s position.

Despite a weaker US dollar against key rivals, which favored the domestic unit, the rupee’s ascent was tempered by the upward trajectory of crude oil prices. In anticipation of an important meeting among oil-producing nations, the movement in oil prices contributed to limiting the rupee’s gains.

Trading at the interbank foreign exchange, the rupee opened stronger at 83.30 against the dollar, oscillating between its intraday high of 83.28 and low of 83.33, ultimately settling at 83.32 (pro), reflecting a 2-paise increase over its previous close.
