Sensex Today | Share Market Live Updates: Global cues to dictate market sentiment

Share Market Updates: Sensex and Nifty pared morning gains and ended in the red with Sensex and Nifty shedding around 0.3% each in spite of positive global cues.

IT sector shines, while PSU Bank, Energy and Consumer Durable drag. Jio Financial Services once again hit the lower circuit on Thursday with RIL shedding almost 2% in today's session.

Asian shares rallied on Thursday after blockbuster results from tech darling Nvidia boosted Wall Street and a retreat in U.S. bond yields eased pressure on borrowing costs globally.

Investors are anticipating clues about the future direction of interest rates as officials of the Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, the Bank of England, and the Bank of Japan are to meet in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, later this week for their yearly conference on central banking.

Indices closed almost 0.3% lower as Sensex shed 180 pts and Nifty 60 pts as RIL and Jio Finance tank

Indian shares rose at the start in tandem with their Asian peers. However, the mood turned grim in the second half with indices ending in the red with minor losses. The mood of the market in early trading was lifted by the overnight rally in Wall Street and a slide in U.S. Treasury yields.

The Nifty 50 index dropped 60 pts to end at 19,386, while the S&P BSE Sensex shed 180 pts to close at 65,252. The more domestically focused mid-caps and small-caps scaled fresh record highs.

PSU Bank index shed more than 0.5% with Auto, Energy and Pharma also ending in the red. IT index jumped more than 0.5%. Most sector indices ended around yesterday's close.

Jio continued to drag as it hit the lower circuit once again. RIL and L&T were other major droppers. Adani Enterprises, IndusInd bank and Infosys jumped more than a per cent each.

Asian shares rallied on Thursday after blockbuster results from tech darling Nvidia boosted Wall Street and a retreat in U.S. bond yields eased pressure on borrowing costs globally.

Japan's Nikkei share average rose for a fourth straight session, its longest winning streak since mid-June, as U.S. chip designer Nvidia's record earnings lifted Japanese tech shares. The Nikkei finished up 0.87%, near the day's high, taking its gains for the week to 2.66%.

China stocks rebounded on Thursday as some investors bought the dip following recent slumps, while a rally in broader Asian markets also helped sentiment.

China's blue-chip CSI 300 Index rose 0.7% at close, while the Shanghai Composite Index edged up 0.1%. Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index added 2.1% and the Hang Seng China Enterprises Index jumped 2.5%.

European shares hit one-week highs on Thursday, with chipmakers lifting the technology sector after industry bellwether Nvidia far exceeded expectations with its quarterly revenue forecast, and as easing bond yields also improved risk sentiment.

UK's FTSE 100 hit a one-week high on Thursday, driven by rate-sensitive real estate and personal goods shares as investors dialled back bets of interest rates remaining higher for longer.

Sensex Today Live: Nvidia Soars Toward Record as AI Demand Fuels Blowout Forecast

Nvidia Corp. shares were set to hit a record high in early trading after the chipmaker at the forefront of an industrywide artificial intelligence race delivered a third-straight sales forecast that surpassed Wall Street estimate.

Shares rose 8.7% to $512 before markets in New York opened on Thursday after Nvidia said sales will be about $16 billion in the three months ending in October. If the gain holds, it will mark a record. Analysts had estimated just $12.5 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Nvidia’s results last quarter also blew past projections, and it approved an additional $25 billion in stock buybacks.

The outlook underscores Nvidia’s role as the key beneficiary of the AI computing boom. Faced with skyrocketing demand for chatbots and other tools, data center operators are stocking up on the company’s processors, which are adept at handling the heavy workloads required by artificial intelligence. That’s helped Nvidia quickly pull out of an global chip slump and accelerate sales growth to its fastest rate in years. (Bloomberg)

Share Market Live: India Needs $13 Trillion to Hit Net Zero Emissions by 2050

India will need to invest $12.7 trillion in its energy system, or more than three times its gross domestic product, to reach net zero emissions by mid-century and help the world avert disastrous planetary warming, according to BloombergNEF.

Hitting that target early — ahead of India’s official goal of 2070, which lags the world’s largest economies — will require moving swiftly to clean-up the country’s vast and coal-dependent electricity sector, according to BNEF’s New Energy Outlook for India, published on Thursday.

That means grid investments to handle variable renewable power, and also scaling up the cash going into green energy.

The world’s third-biggest emitter of greenhouse gases currently produces about 70% of its electricity from coal, and the same fossil fuel underpins a range of heavy industries, such as steel, cement and aluminum. That’s despite rapid expansion in renewable energy, with a record-high of 16 gigawatts of utility-scale solar installed in 2022. (Bloomberg)

Share Market Live: PL Stock Update - TVS Motor Launch of a niche market offering

Himanshu Singh – Research Analyst, Prabhudas Lilladher Pvt Ltd Stock Update - TVS Motor – TVS X EV - Launch of a niche market offering


TVS Motor introduced its new premium EV product “TVS X" at an introductory price of Rs. 2,49,999. It offers several first-in-the-segment tech and safety features.

PL View: “The product has several segment first features and is positioned as a premium offering when compared to the current EV scooter market in India, it will most likely be focused on the global side to gain traction. TVS could use its strong presence in the global market and also leverage its recent acquisition in the Europe region to showcase the product. Given its premium features and positioning, it's intended for a niche market segment and we don’t expect the model to garner huge volumes. We expect TVS to launch more dedicated EV products focusing on the lower price points to compete against new lower price point launches by peers in the space. The stock trades at c27x PE FY25E we have an Accumulate rating on the stock."

Sensex Today Live: Fewer new aircraft lift mid-life plane demand

A global shortage of new aircraft has lifted demand and lease rentals for mid-life planes or those that are five to eight years old.

According to Jared Ailstock, managing partner of AIP Capital, an aviation asset management and investment company, airlines are choosing to pay higher fees to extend leases and keep such aircraft on their fleets, a trend that is consistent worldwide.

“Mid-life aircraft, which would normally have been retired, are staying in fleet longer, so airlines are signing early extensions; you see lease rents go up on those aircraft, you are seeing extensions on those planes to keep them on the fleet," Ailstock said in an interview. (Read More)

Share Market Live: Angel One views on Gold and Silver: Gold and Silver short term bull are in act

Tejas Anil Shigrekar, Commodities and Currencies Senior Technical Analyst, Angel One Ltd: The US dollar's recovery has been ongoing and impressive, gaining strength over the past month, fluctuating within the range of 103.60 to 104.15. Notably, during the session on August 23rd, substantial resistance was encountered, creating a zone for profit booking for long dollar positions due to the resistance. Additionally, a bearish candlestick pattern emerged on the daily chart, likely influenced by treasury yields and central bank activities.

The bulls seeking safe havens have returned. During the Wednesday session, Gold prices experienced a rise of 245 (0.42%) per 10 grams, while Silver maintained its position above the 74,000 mark, showcasing a robust rally of 2022 (2.81%) per kilogram. In the NYMEX market, Gold and Silver reached USD 1920 (1%) per ounce and USD 24.36 (4%) per ounce respectively.

Looking ahead to the remaining sessions of August, our strategy anticipates the US dollar to trade within a sideways range of 102.20 to 100.80 levels. It's important to note the significant inverse relationship between the dollar and commodities. On August 23rd, the price of Gold triggered an isolated Steban arena, resulting in a four-day sideways band between 58,200 and 58,700 levels before closing above this range. This bullish movement is likely to persist towards the next resistance point at 59,300 levels, followed by a potential target of 59,700 levels.

Similarly, for Silver, given the current pattern, a bullish outlook is favored, with Gold prices leading the way and aiming for the next resistance levels at 75,100 to 75,900. As we monitor potential bullish movement, it's possible that minor corrections in the very short term could occur. These corrections could provide traders with opportunities to enter positions aligned with the bullish trend.

Stock Market Live: JM Financials views on Textile sector: Export demand revival and impending FTAs to drive sector re-rating

Ashutosh Somani from JM Financial Institutional Securities views on Textile sector: Export demand revival and impending FTAs to drive sector re-rating

Indian textile scrips have rallied significantly over the past few months, up ~45% YTD. Strong sector rally has been driven by a) improving global retailers inventory position b) margin expansion on account of decline in cotton prices (~38% YoY) c) increasing market size on the back of impending UK FTA d) media chatter around EU FTA. Most global retailers have highlighted reduction in inventory with demand outlook improving on the back of higher than expected growth in US retail sales. Consequently, Walmart has upwards revised its full year guidance to reflect a strong Q2 performance. TJX also expects comparable store sales to be up 3-4% for FY24. Indian home textile / apparel players in tandem with global retailers commentary expect demand revival from 2H. Extended runway for revenue growth over next 3 years (courtesy FTAs / ’China+1’), GOI’s increased focus on textile ecosystem (rebates/PLI) and deflation in commodity price (cotton price off highs) make a strong case for valuation multiples re-rating across sector names. Gokaldas Exports (huge addressable market size / top-notch execution/ net cash BS) remains our top pick in the sector. Welspun India remains a key beneficiary of the said theme.

Stock Market Live: Geojit Financial views on today's market: investors should remember that sentiments are transient and the medium to long-term trajectory of the market will be driven by economic growth and corporate earnings

Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: The near-term market outlook has turned distinctly positive with the US economy’s soft landing narrative lifting sentiments globally and Chandrayaan 3‘s successful soft landing on the moon boosting sentiments in India. Weakening US economic data, particularly the decline in US manufacturing PMI from 49 to 47 has led to sharp decline in the US 10-year bond yield by 14 bp to 4.19%. This might turn the short-term cycle of capital flows again in favour of EMs like India. The sudden reversal in the declining trend of INR also is indicative of this shift in global macros favouring India in the near-term.

However, investors should remember that sentiments are transient and the medium to long-term trajectory of the market will be driven by economic growth and corporate earnings. So watch out for the big data.

The recovery in Bank Nifty, which is driven by fundamentals and fair valuations, augurs well for the Nifty."

Stock Market Live Updates: India set to ban sugar exports for first time in 7 years

In the upcoming season starting October, India is anticipated to prohibit sugar mills from engaging in sugar exports. This decision comes after a span of seven years and is a response to diminished cane yields resulting from insufficient rainfall, as disclosed by three government insiders.

If India refrains from participating in the global sugar market, it could potentially amplify benchmark prices in New York and London. These benchmarks are presently hovering at multi-year peaks, prompting concerns of heightened inflation within the global food markets. Mint initially reported on this matter on June 2 of the current year. (Read More)

Share Market Live: QIA to invest ₹8,278 crore in RIL’s retail arm for 0.99%

Sovereign wealth fund Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) has agreed to invest 8,278 crore ($1 billion) into the retail arm of Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL), marking a fresh round of investments into Reliance Retail Ventures Ltd (RRVL) after the country’s largest retailer raised 47,265 crore in 2021.

QIA’s investment values RRVL at 8.28 trillion or $100 billion, twice its 4.21 trillion valuation in 2021.

QIA’s investment will translate into a 0.99% stake in RRVL on a fully diluted basis, RRVL said on Wednesday.

“The company might look slightly overvalued now, but the investors are of the view that the high growth in the segment coupled with the large market that the company is targeting will help it grow into the value in future," an investment banker said on condition of anonymity. (Read More)

Stock Market Today: Wall Street rallies as pressure from the bond market eases

Wall Street rallied to its best day since June on Wednesday after pressure that's built up on stocks from the bond market relaxed a bit.

The S&P 500 climbed 1.1% to trim its loss for what's been a dismal August so far. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 184 points, or 0.5%, and the Nasdaq composite jumped 1.6%.

Big Tech stocks and others that benefit from easier interest rates led the way. They got some relief as the 10-year Treasury yield eased back further from its highest level since 2007 after a report suggested the U.S. economy may be cooling.

A 2.2% gain for Apple's stock and 1.4% climb for Microsoft shares were two of the strongest forces pushing the S&P 500 upward.

Nvidia, another one of the market's most influential stocks, rallied 3.2% ahead of its highly anticipated profit report. Expectations were immense for the report, which came out after trading ended for the day, and it still managed to blow past forecasts.

Nvidia stunned Wall Street three months ago by predicting a boom in artificial intelligence technology would mean it would make roughly $11 billion in revenue during the three months through July. (AP)
