Sensex and Nifty 50 closed higher in the previous session led by heavyweights

Day trading guide for today: Frontline indices Sensex and Nifty 50 settled higher on Wednesday led by heavyweights including Reliance Industries along with oil marketing companies (OMCs). Buying interest in auto, banking, and realty stocks on positive macro data also aided sentiment. A decline in global crude oil prices supported hopes for refining margins among Indian OMCs.

The 30-share BSE Sensex ended higher by 526.01 points or 0.73 per cent at 72,996.31 level while the Nifty 50 closed at 22,123.65 level, up 118.95 points or 0.54 per cent. Analysts said that the recent upward revision in India’s GDP growth forecast by both Moody’s and S&P Global rating agencies uplifted the sentiments. Inflows amounting to 50,000 crore by domestic institutional investors (DIIs) in March added to the positivity.

In the broader market, while the Nifty Smallcap 100 outperformed the benchmark indices, rising 0.96 per cent, the Nifty Midcap 100 underperformed, ending 0.06 per cent higher. However, these broader indices have dropped 4.46 per cent and 1.03 per cent, respectively, so far in March, while the Nifty 50 has risen 0.64 per cent.

"Stock-specific actions and positive undercurrents due to a healthy economic growth forecast led the market towards a positive closure. However, due to the holiday-led truncated week, investors are now focusing on US GDP data tomorrow and next week’s RBI policy announcement to gauge market direction,'' said Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services.

Day trading guide for the stock market today

On the outlook for Nifty today, Ajit Mishra, SVP - Technical Research, Religare Broking Ltd said, “Nifty has finally surpassed the hurdle of short term moving average i.e. 20 DEMA but we need sustainability above 22,200 to extend the rebound. Also, since the volatility is still high across the board, traders should remain focused on stock selection and risk management." 

Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities Ltd noted, “Investors are covering their short positions ahead of the F&O expiry on Thursday. Benchmark Nifty could gain strength if it crosses its biggest hurdles at 22,257 mark, while support is placed at 21,771 mark."

On the technical front, Rupak De, Senior Technical Analyst, LKP Securities said, “Nifty remained strong following an opening with a gain. During the day, it moved up above 22,100 and closed above it as well. The short-term momentum appears positive, supported by a crossover in the RSI (14) indicator. The trend is likely to remain positive as long as it stays above 22,000. On the higher end, it could potentially move towards 22,300 and beyond in the short term."

On the outlook for Bank Nifty, Kunal Shah said, “The index closed just below its 20-day moving average (20DMA), positioned at 46,950. A decisive break above this level is anticipated to trigger sharp short-covering moves towards the 48,000 mark. However, the index finds support around the 46,500-46,400 zone, and a breach below this level could lead to increased selling pressure."

Global Cues

US stocks ended higher on Wednesday with the Dow leading gains and the S&P 500 setting record-highs, while investors looked toward the next piece of inflation data and Federal Reserve commentary for signals on the rate path.

Gold prices also extended gains on Wednesday ahead of the US Core Personal Consumption Expenditures Price Index (PCE) data that will throw further light on the US Federal Reserve's policy path after the central bank kept interest rates unchanged for the fifth straight meeting this month.

Oil prices were broadly stable in the previous session after US crude stockpile rose lesser than expected, while slightly dragged by indications that the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) is unlikely to change its output policy at its meeting next week. Crude prices have pared gains since hitting last week to their highest levels since October.
