At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 18,315.10 up by 0.27%
NSE Nifty 50 commenced trading with a strong opening and registered a gain of 0.27 percent before concluding on a positive note. Notably, the Nifty index closed above the crucial level of 18300.
Despite some late-day buying on May 10, benchmark indices saw an uptick in response to the nervousness surrounding the US inflation data that is expected to influence the tone of the next FOMC meeting.
Interest rate-sensitive sectors, such as private banks, auto, and realty, witnessed a surge in buying activity. However, PSU banks, which have been experiencing intensified selling over the past few days, continued to observe a downtrend.
Amidst the uncertainties surrounding the US market, the domestic market exhibited a flatline trend, with investors avoiding a definitive direction and instead oscillating between gains and losses.
In the global arena, investors exercised caution in view of the upcoming US inflation data and a meeting between US political leaders to discuss fiscal concerns. Meanwhile, oil prices experienced a dip, with industry data revealing an unexpected increase in US crude stock, hinting at a possible fragility in demand.
Bank Nifty: Up by 0.31%
The Bank Nifty followed suit by initiating trade in the positive territory, with a gain of 0.31 percent, and went on to close in green at 43,331.05. In a similar vein, the BSE Sensex exhibited a rise of 0.29 percent and concluded the trading session in the green, reaching a high of 61,940.20.
Following a weak start, Bank Nifty made a robust recovery, buoyed by bullish sentiments. The support level at 43,000 proved to be a strong demand zone. At present, the index is facing immediate resistance at 43,500, and a breakthrough of this level would pave the way for further gains towards 44,000. Market participants are closely monitoring the forthcoming US CPI inflation data.
