    Sensex scales 72k peak for first time; Nifty hits all-time high

    Sensex and Nifty soared to fresh closing record highs on Wednesday, with the 30-share benchmark index crossing the historic 72,000 mark, boosted by optimism over the country’s macroeconomic fundamentals and firm global market trends.

    Reflecting broader investor bullishness, the 50-share index surged to a record high of 21,654.75 on intense buying in metal, commodity, auto and banking sectors.

    Rising for the fourth straight session, the BSE gauge jumped 701.63 points or 0.98 per cent to settle at its all-time closing high of 72,038.43. During the day, it zoomed 783.05 points or 1.09 per cent to reach its intra-day lifetime high of 72,119.85.

    The Nifty climbed 213.40 points or 1 per cent to settle at a record high of 21,654.75. During the day, it rallied 234.4 points or 1.09 per cent to reach its all-time intra-day peak of 21,675.75.

    Among the Sensex firms, UltraTech Cement, JSW Steel, Tata Motors, Bharti Airtel, State Bank of India, Larsen & Toubro, Infosys and Bajaj Finserv were the major gainers.

    On the other hand, NTPC and Tech Mahindra were the laggards.

    Rupee falls 16 paise to 83.35 against US dollar

    The rupee declined 16 paise to settle at 83.35 (provisional) against the US dollar on Wednesday due to sustained outflow of foreign funds and increased demand for American currency from importers and banks.

    According to forex traders, a robust buying trend in the domestic equity market failed to boost sentiment as investors remained concerned over volatile crude oil prices fearing disruption in global trade through the Red Sea route.

    At the interbank foreign exchange, the domestic currency opened at 83.21 and traded between the peak of 83.20 and the lowest level of 83.35 against dollar during intra-day deals. The local unit finally settled at 83.35 (provisional) against the greenback, registering a fall of 16 paise from its previous close.

    On Tuesday, the domestic currency settled at 83.19 against the dollar.

    Market today: Post-listing view on Happy Forgings, Credo Brands & RBZ Jewellers by Shivani Nyati

    Here is the post-listing view on Happy Forgings, Credo Brands and RBZ Jewellers from Shivani Nyati, Head of Wealth, Swastika Investmart Ltd.

    Happy Forgings

    Happy Forgings, the esteemed manufacturer of complex machinery components, made a debut on the stock market that landed slightly below pre-listing expectations. Nevertheless, the company secured a commendable 17.65% gain, listing at Rs 1000 per share compared to its IPO price of Rs 850. Happy Forgings presents a mixed bag for investors. The lower-than-expected listing raises concerns, but the decent gain and strong fundamentals offer a counterpoint. A careful evaluation of both sides is crucial before making any investment decisions. Given the uncertainty surrounding the listing, a cautious approach is recommended. Existing investors in the IPO may consider holding their shares with a stop loss at 900. However, investors who were looking for listing gains may exit their positions.

    Credo Brands

    Credo Brands, the company behind the Mufti brand, made a lukewarm debut on the stock markets, listing at Rs 282 per share, almost flat compared to its IPO price of Rs 280. This lackluster performance falls short of pre-listing expectations.

    Despite the disappointing listing, Credo Brands still possesses its core strengths, including a strong brand, a wide distribution network, and consistent financial performance. However, the flat debut highlights the potential risks associated with the highly competitive market, seasonality, and current market sentiment.

    Given the uncertain outlook, a cautious approach is warranted, and investors may consider exiting their holdings, but long-term investors with high-risk capacity may hold their position by keeping stop loss.

    RBZ Jewellers

    RBZ Jewellers’ stock market debut mirrored pre-listing whispers, landing at Rs 100 per share, flat listing with zero listing gain on its issue price. This lackluster listing, in line with the subdued grey market trend, reflects cautious investor sentiment toward the company despite its apparent strengths.

    While RBZ Jewellers possesses strong fundamentals and a fair valuation on the surface, the significant risks cannot be overlooked. The flat listing serves as a stark reminder of the potential pitfalls associated with gold price volatility, client concentration, informal artisan arrangements, and intense competition.

    Thus, investors are suggested to exit their positions.

    Stock Market Today: Market’s resilience in holiday season indicates underlying bullishness, says V K Vijayakumar

    Morning market quote from Dr. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

    “The resilience of the market even in the holiday season, which is normally devoid of much action, is an indication of its underlying bullishness. The global support to the market from the mother market US where the S&P 500 is close to all-time high is significant.

    There are areas of concern which investors have to be careful about. Several IPOs getting heavily oversubscribed is an indication of exuberance. There is frenzy in the mid and small cap segments where valuations are excessive. The rally in the PSU space, in some segments like ship building, are being driven by hope based on order inflows. The market is ignoring the execution challenges here.

    Investors should give priority to high quality bluechips which are doing well and have good earnings visibility.

    A correction in the broader market is inevitable.”

    Stock Market Live Updates: OPENING BELL: Sensex and Nifty gain momentum: Markets open on a positive note

    Wednesday saw a positive start for India’s bourses, with the Sensex and Nifty exhibiting gains. The 30-share BSE Sensex ascended by 207.34 points to reach 71,544.13 in early trading, while the NSE Nifty surged by 74.80 points, reaching 21,516.15. 

    Anticipated volatility later in the day precedes Thursday’s F&O expiry, expected to keep the market within a narrow range amid ongoing consolidation. Additionally, positive market reactions surfaced following surprising economic data regarding the current account deficit.

    The sequential narrowing of the current account deficit (CAD) to $8.3 billion (1 per cent of GDP) in Q2-FY24 was despite a higher trade deficit, as net invisibles improved. However, the reversal of FPI and FDI flows led to a sharp fall in capital account surplus, with a small BoP surplus ($2.5 billion) for the quarter, said Madhavi Arora of Emkay Global Financial Services.

    “For FY24E, we maintain CAD/GDP at 1.4 per cent, led by incrementally improving goods trade deficit vs. FY23 and solid services trade surplus. Risks from higher crude oil prices have receded. We see no risk to CAD funding currently and see FY24 BoP surplus at USD9-10bn vs. (-)USD9bn in FY23. INR will stay range-bound amid low volatility due to the RBI’s two-way FX management strategy,” she cautioned.

    Technical analysts expect the market to remain in a narrow range as benchmarks are near the resistance level.

    Ajit Mishra, SVP - Technical Research, Religare Broking Ltd, said: “We have reached closer to the hurdle of 21,500 in Nifty and need support from the banking index to make a serious attempt for trend resumption else profit taking would resume. Amid all, traders should avoid aggressive trades in the index and stay focused on identifying opportunities on stock-specific front. We reiterate our preference for defensive viz. Pharma and FMCG for long trades and suggest picking selectively from others.”

    Avdhut Bagkar, StoxBox’s Technical and Derivatives Analyst, observes Indian shares inching up after the Christmas break, echoing global optimism that nudged the S&P 500 closer to record highs. US markets hint at sustaining positive trends. Asian indices hold firm, supported by Wall Street’s positivity and surging Chinese gaming stocks. India’s CAD shrinks to $8.3 billion, boosting market sentiment. Credo Brands Marketing (Mufti Menswear) debuts today with expectations of robust listing gains. Oil climbs 2%, backed by geopolitical tensions and hopes of Fed rate cuts. Sensex and Nifty may open slightly higher, as GIFT Nifty trends signal positivity. Technicals suggest support at 21300-21400 for bullish momentum continuation.

    Meanwhile, oil prices fell in early Asian trade on Wednesday, trimming strong gains from the previous session as major shipping firms began returning to the Red Sea despite continued attacks and escalating tensions in the Middle East.

    Brent crude futures fell 18 cents, or 0.22%, to $80.89 a barrel. U.S. WTI crude futures were down 22 cents, or 0.29%, at $75.35 a barrel.

    Stock Market Live Updates: Pre-market views by Avdhut Bagkar of StoxBox

    Indian shares eked out modest gains on Tuesday as traders returned to their desks after a long Christmas holiday weekend. On the global front, Stocks rose to start the last week of the year, pushing the S&P 500 closer to record levels. US investors believe that yesterday’s moves likely signal a continuation of the positive market trends boosting major indices in recent weeks. Meanwhile, most of the Asian indices were holding strong gains Wednesday morning on a positive handover overnight from Wall Street, coupled with a rally in Chinese gaming stocks. On the economic front, India’s current account deficit (CAD) narrowed to $8.3 billion in the second quarter of 2023-24, according to data released on December 26 by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). On the stock-specific front, the much-awaited debut of Credo Brands Marketing (Mufti Menswear) will take place today and we see strong double-digit listing gains. Furthermore on the commodity front, Oil jumped over 2% on Tuesday to the highest in almost a month, supported by the Middle East strife and investor optimism that the U.S. Federal Reserve would soon start cutting interest rates, boosting global economic growth and fuel demand. The benchmark Sensex and Nifty indices are likely to open marginally higher today as trends in the GIFT Nifty indicate a positive start for the broader index.

    The front-line index witnessed yet another muted trading session following a gap-up opening amidst the pullback rally. On the derivative front, the strikes of 21300 and 21400 added significant PE open interest indicating immediate support going forward. The index is anticipated to continue to attract bullish strength provided the zone 21300-21400 remains intact on a closing basis.

    Brent crude futures fell 18 cents, or 0.22%, to $80.89 a barrel by 0101 GMT. U.S. WTI crude futures were down 22 cents, or 0.29%, at $75.35 a barrel.

    Prices on Tuesday climbed more than 2% to their highest this month, continuing last week’s upward momentum which saw prices rise more than 3%, partly on hopes of U.S. interest rate cuts that could boost economic growth and fuel demand. - Reuters

    US Futures

    S&P 500 futures are near flat Tuesday night as investors eyed the benchmark index’s approach to a record high.

    Futures tied to the broad market index and Nasdaq 100 were both up about 0.1%. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures added 4 points points, trading near the flatline.

    With just three sessions left in 2023′s trading year, the Dow and S&P 500 are poised to end 2023 higher by 13% and 24%, respectively. The Nasdaq Composite has jumped 44%, outperforming amid mega-cap te

    Still, the market may be overly optimistic, especially if the Federal Reserve begins cutting interest rates later than traders anticipate. The market is pricing in a more than 70% probability of a decrease to interest rates at the central bank’s March meeting, according to CMEGroup’s FedWatch tool.

    Investors will watch on Wednesday for economic data on the manufacturing industry.

    US Markets

    U.S. stocks closed higher Tuesday, building on a streak of eight straight weekly gains as the final, holiday-shortened week of 2023 got under way.

    All three major U.S. stock indexes rose in light trading a day after the Christmas holiday, with the S&P 500 touching its highest intraday level since January 2022. All three are on track for monthly, quarterly and annual gains.

    Energy stocks were among the best performers in the S&P 500, boosting the sector 1.3% as oil prices gained more than 3% as attacks on ships in the Red Sea fueled shipping disruption fears.

    The S&P 500 traded about 0.5% away from its all-time high of 4,796.56. Closing above that level - 4,796.56 - would confirm the benchmark index has been in a bull market since touching the bear market nadir, the closing low reached in October 2022.

    The S&P 500 is on track to post its biggest quarterly gain in three years, and is within 0.5% of its all-time closing high reached in January 2022.

    Despite warnings about overbought levels and stretched positioning, equities continued to power ahead on bets the Federal Reserve will cut rates as early as March.

    We had a good inflation number on Friday. If inflation continues to move down in January and February, there’s a good chance that the Fed may cut (rates) earlier than anticipated.

    Stocks’ eight-week rally shifted into overdrive two weeks ago after the Fed signaled the end of its rate hike cycle and opened the door to potential rate cuts in 2024.

    At last glance, markets had baked in a 72.7% likelihood of a 25 basis point reduction in the Fed funds target rate as soon as March, according to CME’s FedWatch tool.

    The focus will quickly pivot to whether the market will be able to sustain its momentum into the New Year, and that may depend on how long the good vibes surrounding potential Fed rate cuts last.

    The so-called Santa Claus rally, which typically encompasses the last five trading sessions of the year and the first two of the new one, has a pretty strong record. Since 1969, the S&P 500 has averaged a gain of 1.3% over the seven-day period.

    The S&P 500 rose to 4,774.75 after completing its longest weekly winning run since 2017. A gauge of chipmakers hit a record, with Intel Corp. up over 5%. The Russell 2000 of small caps added 1.2%.

    To Adam Turnquist at LPL Financial, consistent buying pressure on stocks of such magnitude is not only rare, but a bullish sign for improving investor sentiment and market momentum.

    “And while all winning streaks eventually end, history suggests the rally may not,” he noted.

    Should the S&P 500 complete a ninth straight week of gains, it will be its longest winning run since 2004.

    Since 1957, nine of the gauge’s 17 previous eight-week winning streaks pushed to a ninth week, but only three of those made it to 10 weeks

    Riding the Rally

    Craig Johnson at Piper Sandler says that any pullbacks will be modest and short-lived as investors follow the eight-week uptrend toward new highs.

    It still appears likely that we can end the year at the highs. No reason to not ride this market through the end of the year. 

    Stock volumes were down across the board, with trading in countries such as Canada, New Zealand and Australia shut. European markets were closed too.

    Locking In Higher Yields

    Buyers piled into Treasury sales Tuesday, seeking to lock in higher yields as the market prices in an aggressive path of Fed interest-rate cuts in 2024.

    Indirect bidders, a group that includes foreign central banks, grabbed a record 77.6% of the 52-week bill auction, and the same category took 71.6% of the department’s six-month offering, the third-largest share ever. Meanwhile, a sale of two-year debt priced below its when-issued yield, a sign of greater-than-expected demand.

    Swap contracts tied to Fed meetings imply an over 90% probability the US central bank brings down its current 5.25% to 5.5% target rate range down in March. Across 2024, traders are penciling in nearly 160 basis points of rate reductions — more than twice as much as Fed officials signaled earlier this month in their new round of quarterly forecasts.

    The economic calendar is thin this week, with home prices rising for a ninth straight month. Early data from Mastercard SpendingPulse showed US holiday retail sales rose at a much slower pace than in 2022.

    On Friday, stocks finished a choppy pre-holiday trading session mostly higher, with the S&P 500, Dow and Nasdaq each scoring an eighth straight weekly gain. The S&P 500 finished 0.9% away from its record close of 4,796.56, set on Jan. 3, 2022.

    Volume on U.S. exchanges was 9.99 billion shares, compared with the 12.56 billion average for the full session over the last 20 trading days.

    What drove markets

    The S&P 500’s streak of eight consecutive weekly gains is its longest since the week ending Nov. 3, 2017. For the Dow, it marked the longest winning run since Feb. 22, 2019.

    With three trading days left in the year, “the S&P 500 still has a shot at hitting a record high and extending its streak of up weeks to nine, which would be its longest run since 2004,” said Chris Larkin, managing director for trading and investing at E-Trade from Morgan Stanley.

    The focus “will quickly pivot to whether the market will be able to sustain its momentum into the new year, and that may depend on how long the good vibes surrounding potential Fed rate cuts lasts,” Larkin said in emailed comments.

    Many investors may now be looking for a so-called Santa Claus rally to further fuel stock-market gains, which have been driven as of late by optimism that the Federal Reserve may begin cutting interest rates as early as the first half of 2024. 

    That rally period often sees stocks rise during the last five trading days of the calendar year and the first two trading sessions of the new year. However, some analysts have cautioned that investors should dial back their expectations for this seasonal year-end gift, believing that rate-cut hopes may be overly optimistic.

    Still, “with the market up so much this year, punctuated with an eight-week winning streak, there are not many sellers willing to book taxable gains to avoid a weak possibility of a correction,” said Louis Navellier, chair and founder of Navellier & Associates.

    Data released Friday showed that the rate of U.S. inflation based on the Federal Reserve’s preferred gauge, the personal-consumption expenditures index, fell in November for the first time since 2020, indicating that price pressures continue to subside.

    In data released on Tuesday, the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller 20-city home-price index rose a seasonally adjusted 0.6% in October compared to the previous month. Home prices in the 20 major U.S. metropolitan markets were up 4.9% in the 12 months ending in October. A broader measure of home prices, the national index, rose 0.6% in October and was up 4.8% from the previous year. 

    The 20-city and national indexes are each at record highs.

    The rest of this week will bring only a smattering of economic updates. Data on weekly jobless-benefit claims and pending home sales will be released on Thursday.

    And next week will mark another shortened week for traders, with markets closed on Monday in observance of the New Year’s Day holiday.

    Elsewhere, oil rose as shipping disruptions in the Red Sea continued to a spate of Houthi attacks against vessels in the vital waterway. Bitcoin fell and the recent rally in memecoins started to show signs of stalling.

    Oil has had a tough year, and John Kilduff doesn’t see things getting any easier for the commodity.

    He noted the global economic outlook is softening, “and that’s going to speak right to crude oil demand [and] energy demand for the next year.” He also said that, “with the United States doing what it’s doing in terms of record production, sky high exports ... OPEC+ just can’t cut enough to sustain a price much above where we are right now.”

    BTIG’s Jonathan Krinsky says health-care stocks are a “solid contrarian idea” heading into the new year. The sector isn’t known for being the best-performing. In fact, it’s only snagged that title once over the past 15 years — in 2018.

    Pfizer’s stock has been down for eight straight months, a pattern Krinsky said is “awful” but shares have “major support.” If an investor wanted to try a “Dogs of the Dow” strategy with a non-Dow stock, Pfizer “fits the bill,” the chief market technician said.

    Wolf Research’s Chris Senyek says Fed will cut rates for ‘the wrong reasons’ next year

    The market is getting ahead of itself, according to Wolfe Research’s chief investment strategist Chris Senyek, particularly as it’s pricing in interest rate cuts that may not necessarily result in the highly anticipated ‘soft landing’ economy.

    “I think that we’re very much priced for perfection, if you think about the rally. We’ve only priced in now that soft landing scenario,” Senyek told CNBC’s ‘Squawk on the Street’ earlier Tuesday. “As we get into the spring and early summer, I think the Fed’s going to be cutting for the wrong reasons. I think the economy is going to slow, the lagged impacts of rate hikes will get the economy.”

    Senyek added that his firm thinks the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates “a few times” next year, but that he doesn’t think those moves will be enough to stave off a deeper-than-expected downturn. Companies’ wage growth, oil prices, and stronger-for-longer employment levels are some of the major swing factors that could impact disinflation over time, the strategist said.

    Something is going break in the economy, says Komal Sri-Kumar

    The market is feeling good about the prospects of a soft landing. Komal Sri-Kumar isn’t so sanguine.

    “My expectation is that something is going to break in the system,” the president of Sri-Kumar Global Strategies told CNBC’s “Money Movers” on Tuesday. “Whether it comes from commercial real estate, whether it is going to be further bank failures, or whether it’s going to be a credit crunch. I think the impact is going to be failing.”

    In Geo-Political news, Ukraine struck a large Russian landing warship in Crimea with cruise missiles in an overnight attack that killed at least one person and could hinder any Russian attempt to seize more Ukrainian territory along the Black Sea coast.

    Israel’s war on Hamas will last months, Israel’s military chief said, as a string of incidents outside the Gaza Strip highlighted the risk of the conflict spreading.

    Companies in focus

    Apple Inc. shares ended 0.3% lower, their fourth-straight day of declines, after the Wall Street Journal reported that the tech behemoth appealed a federal trade agency’s ban of two Apple Watch models because of patent violations.

    Shares of Intel Corp. rose 5.2% after Israel’s government said the chip giant would invest $25 billion in the country. The investment comes after Intel secured $3.2 billion in incentives from Israel, according to Bloomberg.

    Manchester United Ltd. shares ended up 3.4% after British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe clinched a 25% minority stake in the iconic English soccer club.

    FedEx Corp. entered into an accelerated share repurchase agreement with Mizuho Markets Americas.
