At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 23,557.90 up by 0.39%

The NSE Nifty 50 commenced the day on a positive note, witnessing a 0.39 percent surge, closing above the pivotal 23,500 mark. This marked its fifth consecutive day of gains, reflecting the index’s resilient upward trajectory amid a backdrop of muted intraday movements. Concurrently, the Sensex, India’s benchmark index, also achieved a fresh record high on June 18, propelled by sustained buying momentum.

The week unfolded with modest yet consistent gains, underlining the prevailing bullish sentiment. Key indices continued their ascent, bolstered by renewed interest from Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) and the prospect of potential rate cuts amid moderating domestic inflation.

Global cues, particularly the robust performance of major US tech firms driving the S&P 500 to its 30th all-time high, further buoyed market sentiment. Despite concerns over market breadth and US interest rates, optimism prevailed, fueled by anticipation surrounding upcoming economic data releases and Federal Reserve communications.

India’s market exuberance is not only a testament to post-election optimism but also a response to anticipated policy measures in the upcoming budget. The market’s reduced volatility in recent weeks adds credence to its short-term bullish trend, supported by a delicate balance between growth-oriented policies and populist measures.

The Indian market’s upward trajectory, mirrored by global indices, underscores a cautious yet optimistic sentiment, driven by a confluence of domestic and international factors.

Bank Nifty: Up by 0.88%

The Bank Nifty made an impressive start, opening in the green with a notable uptick of 0.88 percent. The positive momentum continued throughout the trading session, culminating in a strong close at 50,440.90, firmly in the green. Similarly, the BSE Sensex showcased robust performance, registering a 0.40 percent increase and concluding the day on a high note at 77,301.14.

In the sectorial front, the real estate sector (realty) emerged as a clear winner, with a significant gain of 1.88%. Leading the pack within this sector were The Phoenix Mills Ltd. and Mahindra Lifespace Developers Ltd., both experiencing impressive surges of 3.98% and 3.30% respectively.

On the flip side, the media sector took a tumble, ending the day as the biggest loser with a decline of 0.64%. This negativity was particularly evident in the performance of Tips Industries Ltd. and Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd., which saw their share prices drop by a substantial -3.74% and -2.32% respectively.

FIIs recorded a substantial buy value of Rs. 19,101.85 crore against a sale value of Rs. 16,532.45 crore, resulting in a net inflow of Rs. 2,569.40 crore.

Similarly, DIIs demonstrated a positive trend with a buy value of Rs. 13,955.22 crore and a sale value of Rs. 12,399.49 crore, yielding a net inflow of Rs. 1,555.73 crore.

Gold Prices Face Downward Pressure After Hitting Resistance

Gold prices experienced weakness after an initial flat to positive opening, losing momentum as Comex gold encountered significant resistance at $2,325. This resistance led to a downward correction, bringing prices down to $2,310. The $2,300 level now serves as a crucial support point. If Comex gold closes below this $2,300 mark, it is likely to face continued selling pressure, potentially pushing prices further down towards $2,250.

Indian Rupee Strengthens on Foreign Inflows and Equity Market Gains

The Indian rupee appreciated by 13 paise to settle at 83.42 against the US dollar on Tuesday. This gain was driven by fresh inflows of foreign capital and a robust trend in domestic equity markets, where benchmark indices reached new peaks. Dollar selling by public sector banks further supported the rupee. However, higher crude oil prices limited the local currency’s gains.

In the interbank foreign exchange market, the rupee opened at 83.52 and reached an intraday high of 83.39 against the greenback. It eventually settled at 83.42, up by 13 paise from its previous close of 83.55 on Friday.

The dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a basket of six currencies, was trading at 105.06, an increase of 0.12%. The US dollar’s strength followed hawkish comments from Federal Reserve officials, with market participants looking for further direction from upcoming US retail sales and industrial production data.

Brent crude futures, the global oil benchmark, saw a decline of 0.33%, trading at USD 83.97 per barrel. While this decline provided some relief, higher crude oil prices overall have capped the gains of the Indian rupee.

The recent appreciation of the Indian rupee highlights the positive impact of foreign capital inflows and strong domestic equity markets. However, ongoing fluctuations in crude oil prices and global economic indicators, such as US retail sales data, remain critical factors to watch. Investors should stay attentive to these elements, as they can significantly influence the rupee’s future movements.
