Nifty 50 up by 0.40 percent during the week.

The NSE Nifty 50, a stock market index that represents the performance of the 50 largest companies listed on the National Stock Exchange of India, opened lower on Monday at 895 points. Despite closing in the red on Friday, the index ended the week in positive territory, closing up 0.40 percent at 18028. This suggests that the index overall performed positively despite daily fluctuations in the market.

Similarly, the Nifty Bank index also opened lower on Monday, but managed to close in positive territory on Friday. Despite the volatility, the index ended the week higher by 0.32 percent, closing at 42507. This suggests that the banking sector in India performed positively despite the market fluctuations.

The Indian rupee appreciated against the US dollar, closing at 81.12 per dollar on January 20. This was a 22 paise increase from its closing on January 13 at 81.34 per dollar. The markets also ended the week higher despite ongoing volatility.

The markets experienced extreme volatility but ended higher for the second consecutive week ended January 20. The positive performance was driven by a combination of factors, including better-than-expected Q3 earnings, the reopening of the Chinese economy, and weak US consumer data. However, there were also renewed concerns over a possible interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve and continued selling by foreign institutional investors. Overall, the market was impacted by mixed cues.
