Market Close Highlights : Stock futures pointed to modest gains in Europe after chipmakers drove a rally in Asia and yet another record-breaking session in the US.

Futures contracts for the Euro Stoxx 50 climbed 0.2% as the MSCI Asia Pacific Index rose 1%, lifted by the tech-heavy markets of South Korea and Taiwan. S&P 500 futures were little changed.

Traders pushed the S&P 500 closer to the historic 5,500 mark on Tuesday, betting the potential for Federal Reserve rate cuts will keep fueling the tech industry. Nvidia Corp. became the world’s most-valuable company — topping Microsoft Corp. — to extend this year’s record-breaking surge.

A Bloomberg gauge of the dollar was little changed, after falling in the previous session. There’s no trading of Treasuries globally on Wednesday due to a holiday in the US.

“Tech stock rallies in Taiwan, Korea, and Japan are expected to continue, it’s not just about Nvidia," said Aisa Ogoshi, a portfolio Manager at JPMorgan Asset Management, said in a Bloomberg TV interview. Apple Inc.’s plans on AI will also benefit its suppliers, she added.

Hong Kong stocks rebounded to lead the gains in the region, while mainland Chinese shares slipped as traders digested speeches at the Lujiazui Forum, where securities regulator chief Wu Qing and People’s Bank of China Governor Pan Gongsheng are among the speakers.

“Hong Kong stocks are rising on the back of the Shanghai LJZ forum," said Billy Leung, an investment strategist at Global X ETFs. “There’s anticipation of positive policies and expectations of reforms for banks regarding shareholder returns. I suspect the policies could be more relevant for Hong Kong-listed shares."

China’s 10-year bond futures rose to a record intraday high amid a months-long bull run in the country’s debt market. PBOC Governor Pan said the central bank, together with the finance ministry, is studying how to implement government bond trading.

Japan’s bond futures fell after a Bloomberg report that the Ministry of Finance is weighing a plan to shift more of its issuance to shorter-maturity bonds. That would signify a major change as the central bank moves to cut purchases of government debt. The yen edged higher after a four-session slide.

Overnight, Wall Street waded through mixed economic data that showed US industrial production increased, helped by a broad-based pickup in factory output. Separately, retail sales barely rose and prior months were revised lower. A chorus of Fed officials emphasized the need for more evidence of cooling inflation before lowering rates.

“Investors should lean toward the glass-half-full view, but recognize macroeconomic conditions," said Anthony Saglimbene at Ameriprise.

In corporate news, Norinchukin Bank, Japan’s biggest agricultural bank, said it will diversify its investment portfolio as it braces for massive losses on the sale of roughly 10 trillion yen ($63 billion) in US and European sovereign bonds.

In commodities, oil steadied after closing at a seven-week high as a sustained risk-on mood in wider markets outweighed signs of further stockpile growth. Gold was little changed.

Sensex Today Live : Closing Bell Wrap

Sensex Today Live : Traders booked profits on Wednesday after India's benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty opened at fresh all-time highs on Tuesday and climbed higher still, led by an overnight rally in chipmaker stocks that had pushed Wall Street to a record high close as well.

Sensex, which had opened at a record high of 77,543.22, created a fresh all-time high of 77,851.63, as investors piled onto banking stocks. But the 30-stock index also touched a low of 76,954.87, as traders booked profit at record high levels. At close, Sensex was at 77,337.59, up 36.45 points, or 0.05%.

Similarly, the Nifty 50, which had opened at a record high of 23,629.85, touched another record high at 23,664.00, before fallling into the red as investors booked profit. At close, Nifty was at 23,516, down 41.90 points, or 0.18%.

Vaibhav Vidwani, Research Analyst at Bonanza Portfolio, said, "Nifty50 and Sensex hit fresh record highs for the fourth consecutive session today. After the release of U.S. retail sales data that fell short of expectations, the gains were led by stocks in Banking and IT sector. However, these factors strengthened expectations of the Federal Reserve cutting interest rates in near terms".

Meanwhile, 20 of the 30 stocks on the BSE Sensex closed in the red. Titan, Maruti Suzuki India, Bharti Airtel, Larsen & Toubro, and NTPC, were the top drags for the day, while Axis Bank, HDFC bank, IndusInd Bank, ICIC Bank, and Kotak Mahindra Bank, were the top gainers.

The trend was repeated on the Nifty 50, where 39 of the 50 stocks closed in the red. Titan, Maruti Suzuki India, Bharti Airtel, Bajaj Auto, and BPCL, were the top drags, while Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, IndusInd Bank and Kotak Mahindra Bank, were the top gainers for the day.

"US 10-year bond yield also declining to 4.22% is pushing FIIs to buy more which is benefiting stocks like HDFC bank, ICICI bank and Axis Bank which are available at attractive valuation," said Vidwani.

The broader market closed in the red, with the BSE SmallCap index closing down 0.58% and the BSE MidCap ending 0.91% lower.

Meanwhile, across sectors, the bank and financial services index surged ahead on Wednesday, led by a rally in private sector banking stocks, while the IT index also closed higher.

That apart, heavyweigh sectoral indices like consumer durables, oil & gas, pharma, healthcare, metal, FMCG, auto and media were among the top sectoral losers for the day.

Sensex Today Live : Auto sector investment vroom: Sign of a private capex revival?

Sensex Today Live : "Higher highs and higher lows are clear indicators of a strong bull rally. This is happening now in the Nifty which has set four days of record highs. Net institutional activity has turned positive with both FIIs and DIIs turning buyers.

The US 10-year bond yield declining to 4.21 % may nudge FIIs to buy more. This is pushing FII-heavy stocks like HDFC bank and ICICI bank which have more room to appreciate since their valuations are fair.

Economic news continues to be positive. Net direct tax collections have shot up by 21%. More importantly, advance tax collections have increased impressively by 27.38 % reflecting robust economic activity.

In brief, it is advantage bulls."

Sensex Today Live : Indian benchmark indices were up at pre-open on Wednesday, led by another record breaking session on the Wall Street on Tuesday that was driven by a rally in AI-focussed chipmaker stocks and a colder US retail sales data that was fuelling anticipation of interest rate cuts by the US Federal Reserve in September this year.

Sensex was up 242.08 points, or 0.31%, at 77,543.22 and Nifty was up 71.95 points, or 0.31%, at 23,629.85 during pre-open.

Sensex Today Live : What to expect from Indian stock market in trade on June 19

Sensex Today Live : India’s key stock market indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are projected to open on a high note on Wednesday, buoyed by encouraging global market trends. The Gift Nifty’s trading around the 23,660 level, nearly 90 points above the Nifty futures’ previous close, also signals a positive start for the Indian benchmark index.

Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, noted the formation of a small negative candle, or a non-classical doji pattern, at the new highs on the Nifty 50’s daily chart. While such patterns typically signal caution for long positions at the highs, the impact of this pattern might be less significant due to its formation amidst a range movement.

Shetti maintains a positive outlook for the short-term trend of Nifty, given its range-bound action and its ability to stay above the 23,515 level (1.382% Fibonacci extension). He anticipates that the Nifty could reach the next resistance level of 23,950 (1.786% Fibonacci extension) in the near term. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : Eight key things that changed for market overnight - Gift Nifty, Nvidia share rally to US retail sales

Sensex Today Live : Following positive global market trends, India’s benchmark equity indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are anticipated to open at new highs on Wednesday. The upbeat sentiment is influenced by the strong performance of Asian markets and record closing highs of the US stock market indices, Nasdaq and S&P 500, driven by a rally in Nvidia and other chip stocks.

On Tuesday, the Indian stock market extended its record-breaking run, with the Sensex rising by 308.37 points (0.40%) to close at 77,301.14, and the Nifty 50 gaining 92.30 points (0.39%) to settle at 23,557.90.

Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research) at Mehta Equities Ltd, noted that the key benchmark indices continued their record-breaking spree due to renewed buying interest from Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) and expectations of a rate cut by year-end amid moderating domestic inflation. He added that investors are optimistic about an increase in monsoon activity in the coming weeks, which could stimulate consumption, especially in rural areas, and support overall growth in the remaining quarters of the fiscal year.

Sensex Today Live : Firm global peers, Gift Nifty signal strong start for Indian markets

Sensex Today Live : Markets globally were buoyed by another record breaking session on the Wall Street on Tuesday that was driven by a rally in AI-focussed chipmaker tech stocks and a colder US retail sales data fuelled anticipation of interest rate cuts by the US Federal Reseve later this year.

In India, the Gift Nifty futures, trading at 23,661, were also indicating a strong start for benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty. Nifty 50 had closed at 23,557.90 on Tuesday.

Asian shares rose to their highest in three weeks on Wednesday, buoyed by a rally in tech stocks, while the dollar wobbled after soft U.S. retail sales data reinforced expectations of the Federal Reserve cutting rates later this year.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was 0.72% higher, with the tech stocks in the region up 1.6% at a record high.

Japan's Nikkei rose 0.59%, while blue chip stocks in China were 0.42% lower. Hong Kong's Hang Seng index rose 1.3%.

Data on Tuesday showed U.S. retail sales barely rose in May and data for the prior month was revised considerably lower, suggesting economic activity remained lacklustre in the second quarter.

The data led to a small boost in rate cut expectations for September with traders pricing in a 67% chance of easing compared to a 61% chance a day earlier, CME FedWatch tool showed. Markets are pricing in 48 basis points of cuts this year.

"(The) Fed will need more data to support its case for a rate cut and investors should not overact to one or two data points," said Vasu Menon, managing director of investment strategy at OCBC.

Last week, mild U.S. inflation readings contrasted with an overall hawkish stance by Fed officials, who trimmed their previous median projection for three quarter-point rate cuts this year to one.

"Rate cuts are a stronger story for 2025 but that's fine because there is hope that it will happen in a bigger way over the next two years even if 2024 remains uncertain, and that will keep markets supported," Menon said.

Fed officials, heartened by recent data, are looking for further confirmation that inflation is cooling and for any warning signs from a still-strong labour market as they steer cautiously toward what most expect to be an interest rate cut or two by the end of this year.

The S&P 500 and Nasdaq closed at record highs on Tuesday, with Nvidia dethroning tech heavyweight Microsoft to become the world's most valuable company.

U.S. markets are closed on Wednesday, which will likely result in subdued trading throughout the day.

In currency markets, the dollar index, which measures the U.S. unit against six rivals, was last at 105.29, while the euro steadied at $1.0738.

The single currency has been under pressure in the wake of French President Emmanuel Macron calling for a snap election following a trouncing of his ruling centrist party in the European Parliament elections.

Sterling was flat at $1.2704 in early trading ahead of UK inflation data due later in the day that will set the stage for Bank of England (BoE) policy decision on Thursday, with the central bank widely expected to stand pat on rates.

The inflation report is expected to show Britain's inflation rate fell back to the BoE's 2% target in May, from 2.3% in April.

Kyle Chapman, FX markets analyst at Ballinger Group, said Wednesday's May inflation report will be the deciding factor and a cut could still be on the table if services inflation gets back on track.

"Unless it collapses, I think we will need a few pieces of evidence to convince the Bank of England that it is sustainably on the way down," he said.

In Asia, the Japanese yen was little changed at 157.83 per dollar, hovering close to the six-week low of 158.255 it touched last week. The currency remains under pressure from the wide difference between interest rates in Japan and the United States.

Minutes of Bank of Japan's April policy meeting showed policymakers debated the impact a weak yen could have on prices, with some flagging the chance of raising interest rates sooner than expected if inflation overshoots.

In commodities, oil prices wobbled as concerns over escalating conflicts between Russia and Ukraine and in the Middle East offset demand worries following an unexpected build in U.S. crude inventories.
