At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 24,141.95 up by 0.55%

The NSE Nifty 50 displayed a resilient performance today, starting with a gap down but ultimately closing in the green, up by 0.55% to settle above the 24,100 mark. Monday saw the formation of an Inside Bar candle on the daily chart, indicating consolidation after a previous high, with a positive chart pattern of higher tops and bottoms intact. This suggests a continued positive trend for the index.

Today’s rebound followed a minor correction, culminating in a fresh closing high on July 1. Momentum indicators such as the RSI and MACD reinforce the bullish sentiment, pointing towards potential targets of 24,400-24,500. Crucial support remains at 23,800, underscoring the index’s robust performance amidst market fluctuations.

Opening at 23,993 and touching an intraday high of 24,164, the Nifty 50 benefited from strong performances in technology and banking sectors, closing at 24,142. This upward movement formed a bullish candlestick pattern, nullifying previous negative sentiment and indicating short-term resilience.

Amidst range-bound action, consistent buying interest on dips signals bullish control, with midcap and smallcap segments also showing renewed strength. Optimism fueled by reduced US PCE inflation suggests potential Fed rate cuts in September, boosting IT stocks and discretionary spending expectations. Attention now turns to US job data and the Fed Chair’s upcoming speech for further market cues.

What factors are contributing to the NSE Nifty 50’s bullish momentum despite global economic uncertainties?

Strong technical signals, resilient sectoral performances in technology and banking, and anticipated rate cuts by the Fed following reduced US PCE inflation are key drivers. These factors collectively support the market’s upward trajectory amidst evolving economic conditions.

Rupee Depreciates Amid Rising Crude Oil Prices

The Indian rupee faced downward pressure against the US dollar, closing at 83.45 (pro) on Monday, marking a decline of 11 paise. This depreciation was primarily driven by escalating crude oil costs in global markets, which heightened concerns over India’s import bill. Despite this, several factors contributed to mitigating a steeper fall.

Amidst the rupee’s decline, domestic equity markets exhibited robust performance, buoyed by optimistic investor sentiment. Additionally, encouraging manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) figures bolstered economic outlooks, providing crucial support to the rupee against the dollar.

Starting the day at 83.39, the rupee fluctuated within a range of 83.38 to 83.47 during trading sessions. Ultimately, it settled at 83.45 against the dollar, registering a modest decline from its previous close of 83.34 on Friday.

Factors such as surging US treasury yields and elevated crude oil prices posed challenges to Asian currencies, including the rupee. However, positive domestic market trends and anticipated foreign investments are expected to sustain the rupee with a slight upward bias in upcoming sessions.

Internationally, the US dollar index reflected weakness, trading lower at 105.24, down by 0.28%. Concurrently, Brent crude futures, a key global oil benchmark, saw a modest uptick to USD 85.35 per barrel, underpinning ongoing market volatility.
