At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 20,070.00 up by 0.38%

Amidst a backdrop of global economic challenges, Indian equity markets showcased resilience and strength. At the start of the trading day, the NSE Nifty 50 began on a lower note, but as the day unfolded, it witnessed a noteworthy upswing of 0.38 percent, ultimately closing in the green.

The initial dip in the Indian equity markets was in line with the mixed performance observed in Asian markets and a recent decline in the US markets. However, mid-session buying activity proved to be a game-changer, leading to a positive turnaround. Notably, the Nifty index closed above the psychologically significant 20,000 mark.

Global market dynamics have been marked by uncertainty, driven by the contraction of the UK economy and the upward trajectory of oil prices. Additionally, investors worldwide have been eagerly anticipating the release of US inflation data, which holds paramount global significance as it provides valuable insights into the Federal Reserve’s policy outlook.

Despite these external challenges, domestic indices in India have managed to resume their upward trajectory. This resilience can be attributed to the recent dip in domestic Consumer Price Index (CPI) inflation to 6.83% in August, coupled with positive industrial production data. These domestic factors have reaffirmed the strength and robustness of the Indian economy, demonstrating its ability to weather global economic turbulence.
