At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 18,817.40 up by 0.68%

Nifty 50 index on the National Stock Exchange (NSE) commenced the trading session on a bullish note, opening at a higher level. Throughout the day, it displayed positive momentum, surging by an impressive 0.68 percent. Finally, as the trading session drew to a close, the Nifty 50 continued its upward trajectory, concluding in the green zone. Notably, the index surpassed the significant psychological level of 18800, reflecting strong market sentiment and optimism among investors.

Despite a lackluster trend observed in Asian and European indices, a sharp rebound in key benchmark indices was triggered by the expiry of futures and options (F&O). This resurgence reflects investors’ continued confidence in India’s strong economic fundamentals, as they strategically gravitated towards banking and realty shares. In a remarkable display of resilience, market participants shrugged off negative catalysts such as the hawkish stance of the Federal Reserve, mounting concerns surrounding Chinese growth, and the ongoing Russian crisis.

Bank Nifty

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

The gainers included State Bank of India with a 1.84% increase, Federal Bank with a 1.81% increase, Axis Bank with a 1.40% increase, HDFC Bank with a 1.39% increase, and ICICI Bank with a 1.30% increase.

The long-awaited merger between HDFC Ltd, a leading mortgage player, and HDFC Bank, the largest private sector bank, is set to materialize. The merger would leverage HDFC Bank’s diverse retail and wholesale banking products with HDFC Ltd’s specialization in home loans, creating a formidable housing loan portfolio within the banking platform. Currently, HDFC Bank earns a fee by selling HDFC Ltd’s home loans, but the merger would allow HDFC Bank to independently build its housing loan portfolio and expand its customer base, solidifying its market position.

In a relatively quiet trading session, the Indian rupee strengthened by 1 paisa to settle at 82.03 (pro) against the US dollar. This modest gain was primarily attributed to a weaker US dollar in international markets and a concurrent upswing in domestic equities, which provided support to the rupee.

The Indian rupee faced limited gains as concerns surrounding potential interest rate hikes in the US and geopolitical uncertainties weighed on the local unit. However, the rupee found some support from a weakened US currency in the global markets and a decline in crude oil prices. These factors helped to mitigate the downward pressure on the rupee and contributed to its relative stability.

Additionally, a weekly stochastic crossover took place in the week ending June 23, 2023, suggesting a potential trend reversal.

Cipla Ltd. saw its share price decrease by -1.07% to Rs 1,011.00 from the previous close of Rs 1,021.90. The stock has delivered an impressive 3-year return of 60.95%, surpassing the performance of the Nifty Pharma index, which returned 30.07% during the same period.
