Market Close Highlights : European stocks struggled to make headway on Wednesday, with a rally in technology stocks barely keeping the benchmark afloat amid disappointing earnings in the banking and luxury sectors.

The Stoxx Europe 600 edged about 0.2% higher after its biggest two-day advance since November. The tech sector climbed 2.5%. ASM International NV surged after orders beat expectations, with chipmakers also taking heart from an upbeat outlook by US peer Texas Instruments Inc.

Banks weighed on the index, with Lloyds Banking Group Plc falling after missing estimates for lending income. Svenska Handelsbanken AB slumped as much as 11% after Sweden’s largest property lender reported earnings for the first quarter that missed analyst estimates. Kering SA tumbled, dragging luxury peers lower, after warning that profit will plunge on slowing sales at Gucci, its biggest brand.

US equity futures advanced, with contracts on the Nasdaq 100 outperforming. Tesla Inc.’s gains alone represented about a third of the rally in Nasdaq futures, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The MSCI Asia Pacific Index increased the most in a month, with chip-related stocks among the best performers.

In addition to the strong performance of the US tech giants in Tuesday’s Wall Street rally, weakness in measures of business activity in the world’s largest economy also helped keep alive forecasts for Federal Reserve policy easing this year. The 10-year Treasury yield ticked higher and a gauge of the dollar was steady.

The S&P 500 notched its best back-to-back rally in two months. Nvidia Corp., the poster child of the artificial-intelligence boom, led a surge in chipmakers. Texas Instruments Inc. gave a bullish revenue forecast — a good sign for the chip industry that helped lift Asian and European producers on Wednesday.

Sensex Today Live : Dr Reddy's shares down as company recalls six lots of blood-Phe-level lowering medicine in the US

Sensex Today Live : The company announced on Tuesday that it is proactively withdrawing six lots of a medication designed to lower blood phenylalanine (Phe) levels from the US market due to subpotency. The pharmaceutical company is recalling specific lots of Sapropterin Dihydrochloride Powder for Oral Solution 100 mg at the consumer level because of powder discoloration in some packets, which has resulted in reduced potency.

Sensex Today Live : Vaishali Parekh, Vice President - Technical Research, Prabhudas Lilladher gives technical forecast for Nifty

Sensex Today Live : "BankNifty has been hovering near the 48,000 zone with bias maintained positive and would need a decisive breach above 48,400 levels to confirm clarity and anticipate further rise. The zone near 46,800 levels would remain the important support zone for the index as of now. Bankex has support at the 20 DMA level of 53,950 for the day and would need a decisive move past the 54,800 zone for the bias to improve and expect further rises to the all-time high. BankNifty would have a daily range of 47,500–48,500 levels, with Bankex support at 53,900 and resistance at 54,900."

Sensex Today Live : Pre-open market comment by Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities

Sensex Today Live : "The overnight surge in US markets and subsequent gains in Asian equities are pointing towards a firm opening for both Sensex & Nifty. A fall in global crude oil prices towards $83 a barrel raises hopes of easing tensions in the Middle East. Investors are also hoping for easing of geopolitical tensions, and are also expecting for the continuation of the current regime in the general elections, which has helped markets reverse the falling trend over the past few sessions. This is despite FII selling and also uninspiring Q4 results from Reliance and frontline technology companies. The technical landscape suggests Nifty’s major support at 22200 mark, with interweek support at 22000 and then at 21710 mark."
