At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 22,666.30 up by 0.68%

The NSE Nifty 50 commenced on a positive note, surging by 0.68% and maintaining the bullish momentum throughout the day. Closing above 22,650, the index reached new heights, propelled by favorable global cues and widespread sectoral buying.

Market Performance and Intricacies Starting the week at approximately 22,600, the Nifty50 steadily climbed, reaching an intraday peak of 22,697.30, marking a fresh all-time high. However, profit booking activities at higher levels moderated the gains, resulting in a closing of 22,666.30, reflecting a 0.68% increase. Despite some heavyweights witnessing profit-taking, the overall sentiment remained positive.

Sectorial Contributions The buoyant sentiment persisted, buoyed by sector-specific tailwinds and optimistic expectations surrounding Q4 earnings growth. Notably, sectors like auto, realty, oil & gas, and consumer discretionary led the charge, while IT remained subdued due to tempered Q4 growth projections amid spending slowdown concerns.

Global Influences On the global front, investor focus shifted towards upcoming key events such as the release of US CPI data, ECB policy decisions, and UK GDP figures following robust US job data. The market anticipates further market movements based on these indicators, with sentiment likely to remain positive in the near term. Overall, the broad-based market rally, coupled with sector-specific strength, underscores the resilience and optimism prevailing in the markets.

Indian Rupee Strengthens Amidst Optimistic Trading

In early trading on Monday, the Indian rupee displayed strength, continuing its upward trajectory from the previous session. Despite a surge in U.S. bond yields, indicating reduced expectations of a Federal Reserve rate cut in June, the rupee stood resilient at 83.26 against the dollar, slightly higher than the previous session’s 83.2950. Notably, the rupee rebounded from Thursday’s record low of 83.4550, supported by broad-based dollar sales from both local and foreign banks.

Factors Influencing Rupee Movement Analysts suggest that the rupee may maintain its upward momentum, buoyed by a slight bias towards appreciation. Additionally, the moderation in crude oil prices, driven by easing tensions in the Middle East, is expected to further bolster the rupee. Brent crude oil futures witnessed a 1.6% decline, reaching $89.70 per barrel.

Market Dynamics Despite the dollar index remaining relatively unchanged at 104.3, Asian currencies displayed a mixed performance. U.S. Treasury yields surged following positive job creation data for March, leading to a reassessment of rate cut expectations for the Fed’s June meeting. Consequently, dollar-rupee forward premiums experienced a decline, with the 1-year implied yield down 2 bps at 1.65%.

Anticipated Trading Range and Market Closure Market analysts anticipate the rupee to fluctuate within a range of 83.20-83.40 on Monday. It’s noteworthy that both India’s rupee and bond markets will remain closed on Tuesday, adding a potential element of stability to the currency’s movement.
