At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 21,622.40 up by 0.75%

In a remarkable turnaround, the NSE Nifty 50 witnessed a robust recovery today, commencing the day in positive territory with a notable gain of 0.75%. Closing above the crucial 21,600 mark, the market snapped a three-day losing streak, buoyed by positive global cues and widespread buying across various sectors.

Encouragingly, the day began with a gap-up start in Nifty, followed by a range-bound movement, ultimately culminating in a positive closure. Sectors such as Oil and Gas, metals, and FMCG experienced upward movements, contributing to the market’s resurgence. However, the banking sector faced challenges, resulting in a mixed trend on the sectoral front. Nevertheless, the broader indices exhibited resilience, each gaining over a percent.

This recovery can be attributed to the prevailing sentiment of ‘purchase during market downturns’ and favorable global trends that facilitated a broad-based rebound. Despite the positive momentum, investors remain cautious, apprehensive of a potential moderation in the rally. Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) are adopting a risk-averse strategy, influenced by concerns about sustained interest rates and a possible deceleration in domestic earnings growth, as indicated by initial Q3 results.

Bank Nifty: Down by 0.03%

In a day marked by mixed market movements, the Bank Nifty began positively, opening in the green but concluded with a slight decline of 0.03%, settling at 45,701.15.

Oil India Ltd. led the pack with an impressive gain of 4.19%, closely followed by Oil & Natural Gas Corporation Ltd. with a commendable 3.55% increase. However, the Media sector faced a setback, witnessing a decline of 0.96%. Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. experienced a significant downturn with a loss of -6.33%, while Dish TV India Ltd. recorded a decline of -4.72%.

Cr.), reflecting a higher Sale Value of 22,334.20 Crores compared to their Buy Value of 18,644.52 Crores. In contrast, Domestic Institutional Investors (DIIs) reported a net inflow, recording a Net Value of 2,638.46 Crores (Rs.

Rupee Gains Against US Dollar Amidst Equities Boost and Crude Oil Price Surge

The Indian rupee showcased resilience on Friday, securing a 7 paise gain to settle at 83.06 pro against the US dollar. This positive trajectory was attributed to robust domestic equity market performance and a weakened US currency globally. Despite these factors, the sharp ascent of the rupee was tempered by the rise in crude oil prices and ongoing foreign capital outflows, as noted by forex traders.

Commencing at 83.15, the rupee fluctuated between a high of 83.06 and a low of 83.16 at the interbank foreign exchange. Ultimately, it closed at 83.06 pro against the dollar, marking a noteworthy 7 paise gain from its previous closing value.

Simultaneously, crude oil prices experienced an uptick on January 19, rising by Rs. 16 to reach Rs. 6,173 per barrel in futures trade. This surge can be attributed to market participants expanding their positions in response to a robust spot demand scenario.
