Trade Setup | Things To Know Before Market Opening - 26 May 2023 Friday
Stock market news: Benchmark domestic equities indices saw advances on Thursday's trading session and erased losses from the previous session. Despite weak international indications and the concern around the potential of a US government default, the stock market closed today in the green.
In the final hour, the majority of the sectors reversed trend and began trading in the green. The sectoral indices were driven by FMCG and Realty, which held steady throughout the session.
Among the biggest losers were Nifty Media (down 0.06%), Nifty PSU Bank (down 0.45%), and Nifty Energy (0.06%). Among the top gainers were Nifty Infrastructure (0.61%), Nifty FMCG (0.61%), and Nifty Metal (0.30%).
The Nifty 50 index ended 0.20% higher at 18,321.15, while the benchmark S&P BSE Sensex gained 0.16% to 61,872.62.
"Domestic indices saw volatility on back of monthly FNO expiry and weakness in global markets. Nifty opened lower and remained negative for most part of the day. However, the index made swift recovery in last hour and closed at day’s high with gains of 36 points at 18,321 levels. Most sectors ended in green, except for Oil & Gas, PSU Bank and Financials.
On global front, US debt ceiling uncertainty and a stronger dollar weighed on investor’s sentiments. Yet again, we saw strong recovery from lower levels indicating overall strength in the market. We continue to expect gradual up-move in the benchmark indices led by support based buying. A close above 18,400-18,450 zones could trigger the next leg of rally in markets," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.
