Notably, the Nifty index triumphantly crossed the crucial threshold of 19550, demonstrating substantial growth and reinforcing investor optimism.

The well-managed inflation situation in the United States has fostered a sense of confidence among investors, who believe that a 25-basis point rate hike would be sufficient to stabilize the US economy. This positive outlook has resulted in significant investment in Indian IT stocks, even in the face of modest Q1 earnings. Additionally, the domestic market experienced a widespread rally, supported by India’s consecutive third-month decline in wholesale prices, as well as the favorable participation of Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs).

Bank Nifty: Up by 0.35%

Bank Nifty commenced the day’s trading on a positive note, displaying a green opening. It showcased a commendable upward movement of 0.35 percent and ultimately closed in the green zone at a value of 44,819.30. Likewise, the BSE Sensex exhibited a significant surge of 0.77 percent, concluding the session in the green territory at a remarkable high of 66,060.90. These robust performances reflect the overall bullish momentum and resilience of the respective indices.

An impressive surge was witnessed in IT stocks, driven by the exceptional earnings reported by select frontline technology companies, which exceeded market expectations. This unexpected positive performance sparked a late rally in the sector, highlighting the market’s enthusiasm and confidence in the technology industry.

At the closing bell, all the sectoral indices showcased a positive performance, with the Information Technology index surging by more than 4 percent, while the metal and realty indices recorded a growth of 1 percent each.

Bank Nifty

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

The gainers included Punjab National Bank with a 3.21% increase, AU Bank with a 2.74% increase, Bandhan Bank with a 2.53% increase, Federal Bank with a 1.78% increase, and IDFC First Bank with a 1.29% increase. On the other hand, the biggest losers in the sector included Axis Bank with a 0.20% decline, State Bank of India with a 0.14% decline, and IndusInd Bank with a 0.03% decline. These results suggest that some banking stocks performed better for the day.


The Indian rupee initiated the day on a positive trajectory, opening at 81.94, with a rise of 0.10 rs, benefiting from the decline in the dollar index below 99.30$. However, a short covering in the dollar index, ranging from 99.25 to 99.65, prompted buyers of the rupee to secure profits around the 82.00 odd levels.

Following its initial peak at 81.94, the Indian rupee experienced a significant decline, reaching 82.21, attributable to a notable rally in the dollar index from its lows of 99.25 to 99.65$. Additionally, the rupee encountered limited support due to the surge in crude prices. As a result, we can anticipate the rupee to fluctuate within the range of 81.85-82.40.

Gold prices in MCX remained steady at 52210, while Comex Gold maintained a sideways range between 1950-1955$. The MCX Gold market received limited support from Comex, hindering any significant rally.

Over the past two days, Gold in MCX has witnessed a robust surge following the release of lower-than-expected CPI data, which stood at 3.00% compared to the previous 4.00%. This positive development has positively impacted the Gold market, fueling investor interest and driving the recent rally.


Tata Consultancy Services Ltd. witnessed a notable increase in its share price, rising by 5.04% from its previous closing value of Rs 3,340.55.
