Stock market today: After the sharp selling in small and mid-cap stocks, the Indian stock market opened lower on Thursday. However, bulls came back strongly in the last session and most of the Indian sectors witnessed sharp buying, which helped Dalal Street recuperate its losses and end higher. Except for the Bank Nifty index, all sectors ended in the green zone with IT and auto being the outperformers.

The Nifty 50 index finished 162 points higher at the 22,217 level, the BSE Sensex gained 535 points and closed at the 73,158 mark while the Bank Nifty index ended 99 points lower at the 46,919 level. In the broad market, the mid-cap index outperformed the Nifty 50 index even as the advance-decline ratio improved to 1.22:1.

Global stocks rallied, with Japan’s benchmark hitting a record high and Europe’s on track to do the same after Nvidia’s blowout sales forecast reinforced investor conviction in the boom in generative AI use.

"Mid-cap and small-cap stocks remained under the grip of the bears which dragged the overall markets lower in the opening trade. As the day progressed, the Index gradually started to recuperate its losses and in the last session, a strong comeback was seen across the board which propelled the Index to end the session higher at 22,217.45 with gains of 162.40 points. Except for BankNifty, all the sectors ended the day in green with IT and Auto being the outperformers," said Aditya Gaggar Director at Progressive Shares.

On the outlook for the Nifty 50 index, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, "A long bull candle was formed on the daily chart with a long lower shadow. Technically, this pattern indicates a sharp comeback of bulls after two sessions of weakness. The up move has negated the bearish implication of the bearish engulfing pattern of Wednesday. The short-term trend of Nifty has turned up sharply after a small decline. Having breached the recent highs of 22,249 level, the Nifty 50 index is expected to move towards the next upside target of 22,500 to 22,600 levels in one week. Immediate support for Nifty today is placed at the 22,050 mark."

On the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Vaishali Parekh, Vice President — Technical Research at Prabhudas Lilladher said, "Bank Nifty witnessed a decent revival from 46,400 zone but resisted near the 47,000 levels to end lower near 46,900 zone and has been underperforming as compared to the Nifty index. The index would have the important support of 50EMA level near the 46,200 zone and would need a decisive breach above 47,400 levels to improve the bias."
