Stock market today: The Indian stock market indices Sensex and Nifty50 closed in the positive territory for the second consecutive session on Friday, December 22. The Sensex closed with a positive momentum, recording an uptick of 242 points, equivalent to 0.34%, settling at 71,106.96. Similarly, the Nifty 50 marked a noteworthy increase, closing 94 points, or 0.44%, higher at 21,349.40 on Friday.

“Nifty gained for second consecutive day after witnessing sharp fall on Wednesday. The index closed with gains of 94 points at 21349 levels. Majority of the sectors ended in green with buying seen in IT, Realty, Metals and Pharma. Rising bets on US Fed to cut interest rate early next year pushed the dollar and bond yields lower after US reported weaker-than-expected Q3 GDP growth at 4.9%. Thus, the underlying tone of the market remains positive. However, as we enter into holiday mood starting this weekend, we expect market to remain range bound with stock specific action next week," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.

Day trading guide for stock market today

On outlook for Nifty50, Kunal Shah, Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst at LKP Securities, said, "The Nifty index displayed volatile movements on the last day of the week but managed to close above the crucial level of 21300. The lower-end support for the index is positioned at 21200, presenting a buying opportunity on any dips toward this level. Sustaining above 21300 could pave the way for further upside momentum, targeting the 21500 level."

On outlook for Bank Nifty today, Shah said, "The Bank Nifty index faced selling pressure on the last day but managed to hold the key support level of 47400. If the index fails to sustain above this support, it could witness further decline toward the 47100 levels. On the upside, the immediate resistance is at 47700, and a breakout above this level may trigger short-covering, pushing the index higher toward 48000/48200 levels."

Stock Market today

On outlook  for  stock market today, "The 'buy on dips' strategy continues to drive investors during the subdued week. Mid and small caps remain in the limelight, benefiting from ease in oil prices and the anticipation of a potential rate cut in CY24, supported by slower-than-expected US GDP growth and weakness in the dollar, signalling early rate cuts. Realty and Auto sectors shine, while PSU banks outperform peers on account of improvements in balance sheets and profitability. Despite a premium valuation, the short-term positive trend persists, supported by a strong revival in FIIs buying & stock specific actions. Heading into the festive season and year-end, we can anticipate a range-bound trade scenario with limited data points."
