All indices except Nifty PSU Bank (-0.51%), Nifty Pharma (-0.3%), Nifty Metal (-0.25%), and Nifty FMCG (-0.1%) closed in the green. Nifty Media (+1.58%) moved up the most.
Major Asian markets closed in the green (Japan’s Nikkei rose 1.7%). European markets are currently trading mixed.
L&T (+2.06%) was NIFTY50’s top gainer. The company’s Buildings & Factories segment secured several ‘large’ projects across various business units.
Infibeam Avenues (+13.2%) broke its 2-day losing streak and surged up to 14% on the back of strong volumes.
Shares of Sobha (+6.48%) moved up after the company recorded sales worth ₹1,723.8 crore in Q2 FY24, a growth of 48.1% YoY.
PowerGrid (-1.26%) was NIFTY50’s top loser.
Marico (-4.9%) fell sharply after the company said its consolidated revenue in Q2 FY24 would be lower due to price correction and forex impact.
Continuous net selling from FIIs is causing a lot of pressure in the Indian market. Nifty opened in the green and continued in the green zone. This might be a reflection of weekly expiry and cannot be considered an indication of reversal in the market.
But you can keep your faith in Nifty’s 19,250 zone, which can trigger fresh buying in equities. Also, you can mark the 19,520 level as short-term and intraday support.
Yesterday’s hammer formation in Nifty is slightly invalid now because the index couldn't form a connecting green candle today.
RBI’s interest rate decision will be announced tomorrow at 10 AM.
Question of the day: Why do you think Trent Limited has two brands (Zudio and Westside) in the same market segment?
