At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 23,264.85 up by 0.02%

On June 11, the NSE Nifty 50 commenced trading on a positive note, marking a slight increase of 0.02%. The day witnessed volatile market conditions, ultimately culminating in a marginal change, with the Nifty closing at 23,264.85, just above the 23,250 mark. While the benchmark indices flirted with record highs earlier in the session, they relinquished gains towards the day’s end, settling flat.

Despite opening with marginal gains, the Nifty index experienced consolidation throughout the session, inching closer to the 23,400 level before concluding with a modest increase of 5.65 points. The formation of a small negative candle on the daily chart, coupled with an upper shadow, hints at the possibility of a minor downward correction in the short term.

The Nifty encountered resistance around the 23,400 levels, witnessing choppy movement before closing the day marginally positive. Intraday weakness emerged near the aforementioned hurdle, resulting in the erasure of earlier gains.

The market remained sideways on Tuesday, lacking a clear directional move. Sentiment may continue in this vein until a breakout from the 23,150-23,350 range occurs. Any decisive move beyond this range could indicate the future trajectory of the market.

Investor sentiment was tempered by uncertainties surrounding the Federal Reserve’s policy decision and upcoming consumer price inflation data. Additionally, concerns regarding potential US rate cuts, despite strong job data, have led to increased scrutiny of global indicators. The focus now shifts to key policy decisions from the US Federal Reserve and the Bank of Japan, as well as inflation data from both countries. These developments are expected to provide insights into the future direction of rate cuts and market movements.

Bank Nifty: Down by 0.15%

The Bank Nifty commenced with losses, opening in the red and declining by 0.15%. It concluded the session in negative territory, closing at 49,705.75. Similarly, the BSE Sensex saw a marginal decline of 0.04%, also closing in the red at a low of 76,456.59.

Conversely, the pharmaceutical sector emerged as the day’s top loser, slipping by 0.43%. Within this sector, Divi’s Laboratories Ltd. saw a decline of 1.27%, while Lupin Ltd. dropped by 1.25%.

Foreign Institutional Investors (FII/FPI) recorded a buy value of Rs. 15,527.24 crore, while their sale value amounted to Rs. 15,638.28 crore, resulting in a net value of -Rs. 111.04 crore.

On the other hand, Domestic Institutional Investors (DII) exhibited robust activity, with a buy value of Rs. 14,162.60 crore and a sale value of Rs. 10,969.31 crore, leading to a net value of Rs. 3,193.29 crore.

These results suggest that some of the banking stocks performed better for the day.

Rupee Weakens Amid Strong US Dollar and High Crude Oil Prices

On Tuesday, the Indian rupee concluded trading lower by 6 paise, settling at 83.56 against the US dollar. This decline was influenced by a muted trend in domestic equities and the robust strength of the American currency in international markets.

The US dollar strengthened due to increased demand from oil importers and stronger-than-expected economic data from the United States. Additionally, elevated crude oil prices put further pressure on the Indian currency. At the interbank foreign exchange market, the rupee opened at 83.49, hit an intra-day low of 83.58, and ultimately settled at 83.56.

On Monday, the rupee had already dipped by 10 paise, closing at 83.50 against the US dollar. Analysts expect the rupee to trade with a slight negative bias due to the strong US dollar and high crude oil prices. However, positive global market trends and fresh foreign inflows might offer some support at lower levels.

Meanwhile, the dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a basket of six major currencies, was up by 0.10%, trading at 105.25. On the commodities front, Brent crude futures, the global benchmark for oil, saw a slight decline of 0.05%, trading at $81.59 per barrel.

The interplay between a strong US dollar, high crude oil prices, and domestic equity trends will likely continue to impact the rupee’s performance. Investors and traders should keep an eye on these factors to navigate the forex market effectively.
