At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 24,323.85 up by 0.09%

Today, the NSE Nifty 50 began in red but managed a 0.09% rise, closing in green at 24,323.85. Despite higher volatility, the index held steady for the second consecutive session on July 5. Opening 88 points lower at 24,213.35, Nifty slipped below 24,200 intraday, hitting a low of 24,168.85. However, buying at lower levels erased most losses, highlighting investor confidence.

The market opened with a gap down, extending selling pressure through the session. Despite this, a strong intraday recovery saw Nifty bouncing back sharply from its lows. The formation of a bullish candle on the daily chart suggests a possible bullish counterattack pattern, indicating renewed optimism among investors.

Banks and IT stocks were key drags on the market, dampening investor sentiment after recent highs. Analysts note that profit booking is typical in a bull market, particularly after significant gains. HDFC Bank’s report of reduced loans also impacted market mood, contributing to the mixed bias seen throughout the day.

Global cues, including expectations of a US rate cut and a robust upcoming Budget, kept overall sentiment positive. Investors remain cautious ahead of the US non-farm payroll data, which could influence the Federal Reserve’s rate decisions. Domestically, the focus is on the Union Budget, monsoon progress, inflation expectations, and Q1FY25 earnings.

Despite early losses, Indian shares recovered to end flat, reflecting market resilience. The heavy put writing at the 24,200 level indicates short-term support for Nifty. As investors navigate mixed global and domestic signals, the bullish trend in the Indian stock market continues to show strength.
