At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 22,932.45 down by 0.11%

On Monday, the NSE Nifty 50 index witnessed a tumultuous trading session, starting positively but closing with a slight decline of 0.11%, settling above the 22,900 mark. Despite initial gains, the index closed below its intraday high of 23,110.80, experiencing last-hour selling pressure that erased the day’s earlier gains. This volatility was emblematic of broader market movements, as benchmark indices on Dalal Street continued their record-breaking streak, bolstered by strong buying activity in realty, banking, and Information Technology sectors.

While the Nifty briefly surpassed the 23,000 level, it failed to sustain this milestone due to a bearish sentiment in the final trading hour and increased volatility ahead of monthly F&O expiry and impending exit polls. Despite the overarching positive trend, investors faced resistance at the 23,000 levels, prompting profit-booking activities to mitigate potential market volatility.

Key positive triggers, including better earnings growth prospects, expectations of a revival in private capital expenditure, and a moderation in Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) selling intensity, supported market sentiment. However, investors remained cautious amidst heightened uncertainties surrounding upcoming events and economic data releases, such as India’s Q4 GDP and US inflation figures, which are expected to influence market direction in the near term.

The Indian stock market indexes surged to fresh record highs, reflecting the broader upward trend observed in Asian markets. Despite challenges in sustaining above key resistance levels, the overall market sentiment remained positive, driven by favorable triggers and sectoral strengths.

Bank Nifty: Up by 0.63%

Bank Nifty commenced the trading day on a positive note, opening in the green and experiencing a notable uptick of 0.63%. The bullish momentum persisted throughout the day, with Bank Nifty closing in the green at 49,281.80, reflecting robust performance within the banking sector.

In contrast, the BSE Sensex witnessed a slight decline of 0.03%, opening the session with a dip that continued till closing. The Sensex concluded the day in the red, reaching a low of 75,390.50, albeit displaying relative stability compared to Bank Nifty’s gains.

On the sector front, the Real Estate sector showed strong performance with a notable gain of 0.85%. Leading the charge, Godrej Properties Ltd. saw an impressive increase of 3.62%, while Sobha Ltd. also experienced a solid rise of 2.38%.

Conversely, the media sector emerged as the top loser, recording a decline of 0.97%. Sun TV Network Ltd. led the downturn with a significant drop of 4.25%. Dish TV India Ltd. also faced challenges, posting a loss of 2.63%.

Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs/FPIs) witnessed a net selling activity, with a buy value of Rs. 14,013.38 crore and a sale value of Rs. 14,554.60 crore, resulting in a net value of -Rs. 541.22 crore. Conversely, Domestic Institutional Investors (DIIs) demonstrated a net buying trend, recording a buy value of Rs. 12,902.57 crore and a sale value of Rs. 11,979.97 crore, leading to a net value of Rs. 922.60 crore.

Bank Nifty

The Nifty Banking sector had some gainers and some losers for the day.

The gainers included Punjab National Bank with a 2.85% increase, AU Bank with a 2.63% increase, IDFC First Bank with a 1.87% increase, Bandhan Bank with a 1.50% increase, and IndusInd Bank with a 1.39% increase.

On the other hand, the biggest losers in the sector included ICICI Bank with a 0.21% decline, and Federal Bank with a 0.03% decline. These results suggest that most of the banking stocks performed better for the day.

Rupee Ends Lower Amid Mixed Market Signals

On Monday, the rupee relinquished its early gains, closing 4 paise lower at 83.14 against the US dollar. This decline paralleled the benchmark indices, which also retreated from their record-high levels. Initially, the rupee opened at 83.08, briefly reaching an intra-day high of 83.05, before ending the day at 83.14. This movement reflects a narrow trading range influenced by contrasting market factors.

The rupee’s performance was supported by the weakness of the US dollar in the global market, yet elevated crude oil prices capped its potential rise. Brent crude futures, the global oil benchmark, climbed 0.47% to $82.51 per barrel, exerting pressure on the local currency. Despite these headwinds, the rupee had previously shown strength, rallying for four consecutive sessions and gaining 19 paise to settle at 83.10 against the dollar on Friday.

Meanwhile, the dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of six major currencies, slightly decreased by 0.05%, trading at 104.67. The interplay between the weakening dollar and rising crude prices created a challenging environment for the rupee. Investors will continue to monitor these factors closely, as they significantly influence currency movements and market sentiment.

The rupee’s fluctuations underscore the impact of global market dynamics, including the performance of the US dollar and crude oil prices. While the currency has shown resilience, ongoing volatility and economic indicators will play a crucial role in its future trajectory.
