    European markets were trading on a mixed note. The US markets ended with gains on Friday.

    Global rating agency Moody’s on Monday raised India’s growth forecast for 2024 calendar year to 6.8 per cent, from 6.1 per cent estimated earlier, on the back of ‘stronger-than-expected’ economic data of 2023 and fading global economic headwinds.

    Stock Market Live Today: Kotak Securities’ Chauhan: Nifty ends higher, Sensex up; sector performance mixed

    Shrikant Chouhan, Head Equity Research, Kotak Securities.

    Today, the benchmark indices witnessed lackluster activity, the nifty ends 22 points higher while the Sensex was up by 66 points. Among Sectors, Nifty PSE, Energy, Oil and Gas indices outperformed, rallied over 2 percent whereas Media index shed 1.85 percent. Technically, after a last week promising rally, the index is witnessing range bound activity at higher levels. However, the short-term texture of the market is still positive. We are of the view that, the range bound texture is likely to continue in the near future. Hence, buying on intraday correction and sell on rallies would be the ideal strategy for the day traders.

    For traders now, 22350-22300/74600-73400 would act as a key supports zones while 22500-22550/74200-74400 could be the immediate resistance areas. On the other side, below 22300/73400 uptrend would be vulnerable.

    Stock market live news: Here’s what VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services, said on market trends

    The massive 350 point rally in the Nifty on Friday was primarily driven by the far better-than-expected Q3 GDP numbers which came at 8.4% YoY. This hot number which indicates strong momentum in the economy triggered short covering leading to the 350 point spurt in the Nifty.While the GDP numbers are good it is important to understand that there is a statistical aberration in the numbers. The GVA in Q3 is only 6.5%. The big differential is due to the 32% spurt in indirect taxes. 

    It is also important to remember that the consumption numbers are tepid. In brief, there is room for optimism but there is no case for unbridled bullishness. The SEBI advisory to mutual funds regarding the excessive valuations in the mid and small cap schemes is likely to restrain the performance of the broader market. The irrational exuberance in the broader segment has no fundamental justification.

    Share market live updates: Here’s what Anand James, Chief Market Strategist, Geojit Financial Services, said on outlook for Nifty

    While a day long upsides on Friday serves to completely reverse the pessimism that was floating around on Thursday, it also means that we are entering this week, quite long heavy. This is indeed a burden for further upsides, but we are fairly optimistic about not only meeting our last week’s objective of 22450-550, but also about heading into 22800 orbit. However, we prefer to keep our downside marker in the 22070-100 vicinity itself until there is enough consolidation higher up, that could do the job, or confirm further ascent.

    Stock market live news: Here’s what Shrikant Chouhan, Head Equity Research, Kotak Securities, said on outlook for Nifty and Bank Nifty

    The market has crossed 22300 and 73400 levels, the key levels to watch are 22500/74000 or 22600/74300. Conversely, 22275/73200 and 22000/72400 would be the crucial supports. It is advisable to have a strategy to buy on dips. 

    Buy Nifty if it drops to 22300/22250 and keep a stop loss at 22100 for the same. 

    Bank-Nifty could face a big hurdle at 47400, but if it breaks quickly, it can reach 48000 or 48500 levels. Based on technical analysis, it is on the verge of hitting the all-time high level of 48637. On the other hand, if the index drops, 47000 and 46750 would offer support.

    Silver up $23.08

    Silver soared as the dollar fell, and bond yields fell in anticipation of a rate decrease in June following data showing a downturn in US manufacturing activity and a dip in consumer mood in February. The Institute for Supply Management said that the manufacturing PMI fell to 47.8 in February from 49.1 in January, with a level below 50 signifying contraction. Data revealed that the annual increase in US inflation in January was the weakest in nearly three years, keeping the Federal Reserve’s June interest rate cut on the table.

Data showed that the annual growth rate in US inflation in January was the slowest in nearly three years.

    The private sector banking space is going through interesting times.

    If one bank is working hard on consolidation post the mega-merger, there is a new CEO at the helm in another who hasn’t laid it down yet on the way ahead for the bank. For a few more, there is a looming question of what next from hereon.

    Amidst these questions and concerns is IndusInd Bank, which comes across as a relatively safer bet with reasonable visibility on the way ahead, whether in terms of growth, quality of growth or quality of earnings.

    Precious metals| Gold, silver remain range-bound

    Extending the lacklustre trend witnessed in January, precious metals remained range-bound and the price action was devoid of any direction in February. The strength in the US dollar and the recovery in the equity markets dented sentiments towards the precious metals.

    The only positive aspect was that the Comex gold price managed to trade above the psychological $2,000-level throughout the month.

    MCX silver is still confined in the ₹70,400-74,000 zone. The short-term price direction depends on the break out from this range. Above ₹74,000 would be a sign of strength and could push the price higher to ₹76,500-77,500.
