Sensex Today | Share Market Live Updates: India's benchmark indexes ended higher on Thursday, having traded in the red through most of the session.
Asian markets also largely ticked higher, with focus on the release of key US inflation data that comes as traders ramp up bets the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates next year.
Bond bulls again latched onto comments from Fed officials, juicing a rally in November that has placed a gauge of global sovereign and corporate debt on track for the best month since 2008.
The rise in bonds followed a ramping up of expectations the Fed will cut rates quicker than previously expected. Swaps pricing now reflects market forecasts that the central bank will cut by 25 basis points in May, bringing forward prior expectations for a June cut.
Elsewhere, Japan industrial production in October was stronger than expected, while retail sales for the month fell short of estimates. South Korea’s central bank will hand down a monetary policy decision. Later Thursday, inflation and unemployment data for the Eurozone will be released, as will US jobless claims and the PCE deflator.

Sensex Live Today: ICICI Securities on Nifty technical outlook
In line with our view, the recent consolidation breakout led to an acceleration of upward momentum that makes us believe Nifty would challenge the all-time high of 20222. However, in the upcoming sessions, volatility would remain high tracking monthly expiry session coupled with state elections verdict which will weigh on market sentiments. Hence, any temporary breather should be utilized as incremental buying opportunity wherein strong support is placed at 19600. Following are the key monitorable for the upcoming week:
Constant improvement in the market breadth signifies strength in the broader market
Declining Brent prices, yields along with positive global setup and strong breadth internals support the bullish chart setup.
Post recent decline in bond yields and inflation, US equity majors have formed bullish reversal patterns on medium term charts. Positive global setup would also help domestic indices.
The sequence of higher lows signifies buying demand at elevated support base that makes us confident to revise support base upward at 19600 as it is 61.8% retracement of past two weeks rally (19414-19916) coincided with 50 days.

Sensex Live Today: India GDP growth projection for Q2 and what it means
At a time when worries over a slowdown in global economic growth are far from over, high inflation is still a risk, and extreme weather conditions have hurt farm output, India’s GDP growth in the July-September quarter is likely to come in at 6.8%, according to a Mint poll of 18 economists, who put the growth in the range of 6.4-7.2%. The data is set for release on Thursday.
The prediction is higher than the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI’s) 6.5% forecast—but both indicate a moderation from the June quarter’s 7.8% growth, primarily because the favourable base effect is fading out. Sequentially, economic activity is likely to have remained strong despite the risks, economists said. (Read here)

Oil steadied after a two-day advance as traders count down to a key meeting that may see OPEC extend or deepen production cuts, Bloomberg reported.

A deeper collective cutback of 1 million barrels a day or more may be considered, delegates said. The absence of group-wide reductions may spur more weakness in oil prices — after a 14% drop over the past two months — amid plentiful supplies from outside the producer group, including record exports from the US.
