Share Market Updates: Auto and IT stocks lifted indices to new highs on Friday with the Nifty and Sensex ending at new all-time high closings. This was the 11th straight session of gains for the Sensex.

Bajaj Auto, Tata Motors, Eicher Motors pushed auto stocks higher, while HCL Tech and Wipro helped the IT pack stay stable.

Stocks in Asia advanced following better-than-expected Chinese economic data and after the central bank took further measures to support the struggling economy.

Meanwhile, the ECB raised its key interest rate to an all-time high of 4%, from minus 0.5%, and signalled this will likely be its final move in a more-than-a-year-long fight against stubbornly high inflation.

Indices hit record highs on Friday as IT and Auto stocks rallied; Sensex added 300 and Nifty 90 pts  

Equity benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty hit new record closing peaks on Friday, helped by a rally in global markets and fresh foreign inflows.

Rallying for the 11th day running, the 30-share BSE Sensex climbed 320 pts to close at 67,838. The Nifty went up by 90 to reach 20,192. Sensex reached an intraday high of 67,927 and Nifty's intraday high was 20,222. Sensex gained around 1.4% this week, while Nifty added 1.5%.

Among stocks, Bajaj Auto jumped more than 5%, with Grasim and M&M gaining more than 2.5% each. Hero MotoCorp and HCL Tech were other major gainers. BPCL, Asian Paints and HUL were the biggest laggards.

Asian Paints, Hindustan Unilever, Titan and Axis Bank were among the laggards.

Stocks in Asia advanced following better-than-expected Chinese economic data and after the central bank took further measures to support the struggling economy.

Japan's broader Topix share index ended at a more than 33-year high underpinned by overnight Wall Street gains, with technology stocks leading the gains after the strong market debut of SoftBank Group's Arm Holdings.

The broader Topix rose 0.95% to its highest close since June 1990 and rose 2.95% for the week. The benchmark Nikkei jumped 1.1% to its highest closing level since July 3 and rose 2.8% for the week.

China stocks closed lower after data showed a slump in the country's property sector worsened in August, even as other parts of the economy showed some tentative signs of stabilising. However, Hong Kong shares rose and the yuan climbed to its strongest in nearly two weeks against the dollar following the data.

European shares extended their rally on track to end their week higher, following a sharp jump in the previous session after the European Central Bank (ECB) signalled an end to its rate hike cycle.

UK's FTSE 100 extended gains driven by miners following better-than-expected economic data from China, while the prospects of global central banks nearing the end of their monetary tightening cycle further boosted risk sentiment.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Low EV costs could drive two-thirds of global car sales by 2030: Report

A recent research study suggests that electric vehicles (EVs) are poised to reach price parity with fossil-fuel-powered models in Europe as early as 2024, and in the U.S. market by 2026. This promising outlook is based on the declining costs of batteries, a critical component of EVs. The report, released by the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) on Thursday, anticipates a substantial reduction in battery costs over the course of this decade. Specifically, it predicts a remarkable decrease from $151 per kilowatt hour (kWh) in 2022 to a range of $60 to $90 per kWh.

This significant cost reduction in battery technology is expected to enable electric vehicles to compete favorably with traditional gasoline-powered cars not only in terms of purchase price but also in terms of running costs. As a result, it is projected that by 2030, EVs could account for up to two-thirds of global car sales, marking a major transformation in the automotive industry.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: JM Financial views on Satin Creditcare Network Ltd: Strengthening the core Company Update BUY

Sameer Bhise of JM Financial Institutional Securities recommendations on Satin Creditcare Network Ltd: Strengthening the core - BUY INR 320 

Satin Creditcare Network Ltd (SCNL or Satin), at its Analyst Day, exuded confidence w.r.t delivering continued growth across asset segments while maintaining strong asset quality. Mgmt indicated that microfinance portfolio originated post Jul’21 continues to exhibit asset quality far better than industry levels (PAR1/ PAR90 at 0.9% /0.5% for Satin vs. 4.4%/ 2.6% for other NBFC MFIs). Mgmt believes its reinvigorated focus on collections, revamped customer selection model (which includes score cards) and diversification have helped them achieve strong qualitative results. As indicated earlier (Satin_IC), Satin’s write-offs have been meaningfully lower than industry through Covid19-impacted period. Magmt has guided for RoAs of c.4.5% over the next 2-3 years (RoE of 18-20% by FY25E) with benefits coming through low credit costs and operating leverage and expects to deliver c.25% growth in AUMs over the medium term. The MSME and Affordable housing subsidiaries are scaling up well and are expected to reach 25% of portfolio (vs. 12% currently) over the medium term. Satin has also recently strengthened its mgmt team with leadership positions across MSME lending, finance by hiring professionals with rich experience across reputed organizations. Satin’s profitability is increasingly becoming consistent, which, in turn should drive rerating of its valuation multiples in our view. We maintain our BUY rating with an unchanged target price of INR 320

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Geojit Financial Services on today's market: Even while remaining invested in this rally, investors can consider some profit booking, particularly in the over-heated mid-and small-cap space

Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: The participation of bluechips like Infosys, RIL, L&T, HDFC Bank and ICICI Bank has imparted resilience to the ongoing rally. Even though the undercurrent of the market is bullish the high valuations and new risks like surging crude and rising dollar index can impact the market negatively. Brent crude at $94 is a major macro worry which the market cannot ignore for long. The rising dollar index which has breached 105 and the attractive US bond yields (10-year at 4.28%) will force the FIIs to sell aggressively soon.

Even while remaining invested in this rally investors can consider some profit booking, particularly in the over-heated mid-and small-cap space. In the micro-cap segment, hope and momentum, not fundamentals are driving the rally."

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Choice Broking technical analysis on today's market: It's advisable to buy when there are price declines, as long as the Nifty index remains above the 19,900 level.

Deven Mehata, Equity Research Analyst, Choice Broking: On September 15, the benchmark Sensex and Nifty indices are expected to open with a slight upward bias, as indicated by the GIFT Nifty futures, which suggest a marginal gain of 18 points. GIFT Nifty futures reached 20,232 points after reaching a peak of 20,241 points.

The daily candlestick pattern formed on the Nifty charts resembled a Spinning Top, with minor upper and lower wicks. This pattern suggests indecision among market participants, with both bulls and bears uncertain about the future direction of the market.

Currently, it's advisable to buy when there are price declines, as long as the Nifty index remains above the 19,900 level. On the upper side, there is expected to be a level of resistance at 20,200, if the Nifty manages to consistently trade above 20,200, it has the potential to initiate a substantial upward rally in the short term.

In terms of institutional activity, foreign institutional investors (FIIs) were net buyers, purchasing shares worth 294.69 crore, while domestic institutional investors (DIIs) sold stocks worth 50.80 crore on September 14, according to provisional data from the National Stock Exchange (NSE).

Support levels for the Nifty are anticipated at 20,000, followed by 19,900. On the higher side, immediate resistance levels are at 20,200, followed by 20,250.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Angel One outlook on Currency: Euro falls post the ECB policy, committee hints at fewer rate hikes

Heena Naik, Research Analyst, Currency, Angel One Ltd: Euro falls post the ECB policy, committee hints at fewer rate hikes

The ECB has hiked interest rates by 25 basis points after the Governing Council’s assessment of the inflation outlook in light of the incoming economic and financial data.

According to the policy statement, the inflation has continued to decline but is still expected to remain high for too long.The Governing Council is determined to ensure that inflation returns to its 2 percent medium-term target in a timely manner.

The September ECB staff macroeconomic projections for the Euro Area see average inflation at 5.6% in 2023, 3.2% in 2024 and 2.1% in 2025.This is an upward revision for 2023 and 2024 and a downward revision for 2025.The upward revision for 2023 and 2024 mainly reflects a higher path for energy prices.

Based on its current assessment, the Governing Council considers that the key ECB interest rates have reached levels that, maintained for a sufficiently long duration, will make a substantial contribution to the timely return of inflation to the target.

The Governing Council’s future decisions will ensure that the key ECB interest rates will be set at sufficiently restrictive levels for as long as necessary.

Post the policy release, the Euro currency took a hit and dived south as markets now speculate that the committee is likely done with tightening policy. There could be a long pause in ECB rate hikes for the coming months with plausible rate cuts in the second half of 2024.

Simultaneously, it has also started streamlining production of small cars, as supply chain challenges, which had hindered production of its feature-rich SUVs, are gradually easing, they added.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Tata Motors Plans Exclusive EV Dealerships in India and Possibly Exports

Tata Motors Ltd. is designing new dealerships tailored to electric vehicles in India as part of efforts to expand its lead in the rapidly growing segment.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Govt moves HC against order in RIL gas dispute

The Centre on Thursday filed a petition challenging a Delhi high court order in favour of Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) regarding a gas dispute in the Krishna Godavari Basin.

The court has asked RIL to file a response, a counsel aware of the matter said. A division bench of the Delhi High Court has agreed to hear the matter on 12 February.

The dispute began in 2013, when state-owned Oil and Natural Gas Corp. (ONGC) Ltd wrote to the director general of hydrocarbons, alleging there was evidence of ‘lateral continuity’ of gas pools between the Reliance block and the adjacent blocks allocated to ONGC. This meant that the gas pools of the Reliance block and the ONGC blocks appeared to be connected with possible migration of gas between the two blocks. (Read More)

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Wall Street climbs, and Dow rises more than 300 points as stocks worldwide rally

Wall Street rose Thursday after a blizzard of reports suggested the U.S. economy is still humming, though inflation may be too.

The S&P 500 climbed 0.8% for its best day in two weeks. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied 331 points, or 1%, and the Nasdaq composite added 0.8%.

Some of the strongest action was in the bond market, where Treasury yields swung up and down several times. While the reports bolstered hopes the U.S. economy will avoid a deep recession, the strength underlying them could also add upward pressure on inflation.

One report said U.S. shoppers spent more at retailers last month than economists expected. Such spending has been a linchpin for the economy, but it could also encourage retailers to keep trying to raise prices further.

The strong spending is a result of a remarkably resilient job market, which has withstood a steep jump in interest rates. A separate report Thursday morning said fewer workers applied for unemployment benefits last week than expected, which implies the number of layoffs remains low. (AP)
