Sensex Today | Share Market Live Updates: India's benchmark indices hit record highs on Monday amid broad-based market rally.

Sensex Today | Share Market Live Updates: India's benchmark indexes ended at fresh all-time highs on Monday, aided by strong domestic macroeconomic data and elevated bets of a US rate cut in March, while analysts saw momentum picking up in the ongoing rally after the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party's victory in key state elections.

US stocks and bonds rallied Friday as Powell noted policy is “well into restrictive territory," though is ready to hike further if needed. The dollar slid, two-year Treasury yields sank to their lowest since June and traders ratcheted bets on a quarter-point Fed cut in March, with swaps fully pricing in a reduction in May. They project over a full point of easing by December 2024.

Equities markets went on a tear last month as investors increasingly bet that the Fed will begin to cut rates in the first half of 2024, thanks to a string of data suggesting its tightening cycle is finally getting inflation under control.

Oil rose while gold traded at a record level as investors kept watch on geopolitical tensions in the Middle East. Israel has resumed its military operation in Gaza, a US warship was attacked in the Red Sea and Houthi rebels in Yemen said they had carried out operations against two Israeli ships.

Sensex Today Live: Nifty flashes overbought signal as India stocks jump on Modi win, says Bloomberg report

India’s record-breaking stock market is approaching overheated levels after a victory by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s party in three state elections spurred a rally on Monday, Bloomberg said.

The Nifty 50 Index’s 14-day relative strength index — a gauge of price momentum — is nearing a two-standard deviation threshold. Declines of more than 9% on average have followed in the five instances going back to 2018 when Nifty punched above this line, data compiled by Bloomberg show.

But, with Indian equities beating other emerging markets this year and foreign investors turning net buyers again, warning signs flashed by technical indicators like the RSI may not dissuade investors from chasing the rally.

The Securities Appellate Tribunal has quashed the market regulator’s 2021 order against Reliance Industries Ltd managing director Mukesh Ambani, Navi Mumbai SEZ, and Mumbai SEZ in a case related to alleged manipulative trades in Reliance Petroleum Ltd shares.

Sensex Today Live: Oil turns lower as market fails to shake off post Opec gloom

Oil fell, after failing to hold an early gain, amid sustained skepticism that the latest supply cuts by OPEC will turn the market’s tide, Bloomberg has reported.

Global benchmark Brent sank toward $78 a barrel after a six-week losing run, while West Texas Intermediate was below $74. The drop came despite speculation that the US Federal Reserve is done raising interest rates and the possibility US sanctions on Venezuelan supply could be re-tightened.

Oil just posted a back-to-back monthly decline as supplies from non-OPEC countries ballooned, while the outlook for demand growth softened. The retreat came even after a move last week by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies to deepen production cuts. The proposal followed a difficult meeting that saw internal wrangling as well as a delay.

Sensex Today Live: Vaishali Parekh, vice president - technical research, Prabhudas Lilladher, on Atul Auto


The stock has made a decent correction from the higher levels of 10600 to 6400 where it has taken support multiple times and has almost made a triple bottom formation pattern in the daily chart. The RSI indicator also is recovering from its oversold zone and hence we recommend a positional buy in this stock for an upside target of 7800 keeping a stop loss of 6300.

Sensex Today Live: Gold prices sprint to all-time peak on Fed rate-cut bets

prices bolted to an all-time high above $2,100 per ounce on Monday as Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell's remarks elevated traders' confidence that the U.S. central bank could cut interest rates early next year, Reuters reported.

Lower interest rates reduce the opportunity cost of holding a non-interest-bearing bullion.

Spot gold was up 0.8% at $2,087.69 per ounce. Earlier in the session, bullion surged to an all-time high of $2,111.39.

US gold futures rose nearly 1% to $2,107.50.

Sensex Today Live: Zomato steers ahead in food delivery race. Is Swiggy far behind?

Indians overall were highly disappointed with the outcome of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. The event though brought cheer in certain sectors such as the online food delivery industry with companies like Zomato Ltd and Swiggy seeing a significant boost.

“The online food delivery segment is likely to have seen a 5-8% year-on-year incremental growth in quarterly gross order value (GOV) during the World Cup," said Karan Taurani, analyst at Elara Securities (India).

Zomato estimates a 25-30% year-on-year GOV growth for the December quarter. The competition between Zomato and Swiggy, however, remains tight. Swiggy's market share in the first half of calendar 2023 stood around 46%, showing a modest increase from 2022, according to calculations made based on the data released by Prosus and Zomato’s disclosed metrics. Prosus holds about 33% stake in Swiggy. (Read here)

For Dixon Technologies, the latest edition of the government’s production-linked incentive scheme is expected to be a significant shot in the arm, especially considering how India’s largest home-grown electronics manufacturer capitalised on the earlier version.

Announced in May, PIL 2 incentivises manufacturers of IT hardware such as laptops, personal computers, tablet devices, and servers. Recently, the government announced a list of 23 beneficiaries under the scheme, with Dixon Technologies being among the primary ones. (Read here)

Sensex Today Live: Elara Capital on election results and markets

Sector-wise, we see rural- and healthcare-focused stocks coming back into focus with the BJP’s execution of schemes being more clinical and targeted. The victory should further diminish expectations of a fuel price cut at the retail level and hence should provide a leg-up to performance of oil marketing companies (OMC) stocks. 

With focus shifting to election preparedness and related spending, impetus to new ordering activity is moderating even as the private sector adopts a wait-and-watch approach. We see order inflow momentum weakening for capital goods and infrastructure companies at least until Q2FY25.

Sensex Today Live: Nuvama Institutional Equities on elections results and market implications

In the four recently held state assembly elections, the BJP has turned in a very strong showing, outclassing expectations. The ruling party, locked in three bipolar contests with the Congress, has sealed an emphatic victory in Madhya Pradesh, and regained Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh. For Congress, securing Telangana (ousting BRS) is a small consolation.

The BJP’s decisive wins in the high-decibel bipolar contests in the Hindi heartland imply its firm footing in the 2024 general elections. From an economic standpoint, this lessens the risk of a populist turn and bodes well for continued government capex. 

These election results are certainly a cut above market expectations. And markets, to that extent, shall cheer the outcome in the near term in our view. That said, eventually, fundamentals—earnings, liquidity and interest rates—shall have an upper hand in shaping the market outlook over medium term.

Sensex Today Live: Indian stock market may open higher as F&O bears crash out

The benchmark Nifty index of the National Stock Exchange (NSE) may open higher by 100-150 points and the BSE’s Sensex may set a new record on Monday, analysts said, as investors look to close out bearish bets in futures and options (F&O) following the saffron sweep in the Hindi heartland. The Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) victory in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh and surprise sweep in Chhattisgarh exceeded exit poll predictions by a wide margin, reinforcing its likelihood of winning the national election next year, they added.

The Nifty may test 20,500 levels, thanks to short-covering by foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) as well as retail and high net-worth option sellers. (Read here)

Hong Kong stocks opened slightly higher Monday morning following a positive lead from Wall Street, with traders keeping tabs on a court hearing over a creditor request to wind up battered developer China Evergrande.

A broad rally on Wall Street closed out a fifth straight week of gains for the market Friday, driving the S&P 500 to its highest level in more than a year.
