Nifty Zoomed

Benchmark Index closed at 17185 before touching 17348.

Nifty zoomed, following global trend and heavy buying in IT stocks led by Infosys. Equities on Wall Street also ended significantly higher.

Today’s market activity was primarily driven by reports that inflation has peaked, traders have priced in future interest rate hikes, earnings reports are decent, and short covering has begun. You can choose any of the explanations to soothe your mental process, as it appears like all the reasons for yesterday’s down move have miraculously evaporated.
