On May 22nd, a broad-based buying was seen across the board with IT stocks outperforming. Significant gains were also seen in capital goods, consumer durables, healthcare, metals, and oil & gas stocks. However, banking stocks were under pressure after RBI announced the withdrawal of 2000 banknotes --- which accounts 10.8% of India's currency in circulation.

Ajit Mishra, VP - Technical Research, Religare Broking said, “Markets started the week on a firm note and gained over half a percent, in continuation to Friday's rebound. Meanwhile, a mixed trend on the sectoral front kept the traders busy wherein stocks from IT, metal and pharma space witnessed rebound while the banking and financials were slightly on the back foot.”

So far in May, FIIs have invested a whopping 18,299.20 crore in Indian equities -- which is currently the highest monthly buying of 2023. On the contrary, DIIs have removed their money to the tune of 4,070.11 crore.

For Tuesday's trading session, Mishra said, "Markets are taking comfort from rotational buying across sectors amid mixed global cues. The recent participation from the IT majors is certainly encouraging but sustainability would be the key ahead. Amid all, we reiterate our positive view and suggest continuing with the stock-specific trading approach."

According to Mitul Shah - Head of Research at Reliance Securities, earnings season is at its fag end. The sample of NSE 500 companies which have reported their results so far shows aggregate revenue growth of 15.3% YoY. Lower inflation and industrial growth provides room for the RBI to continue with its pause in the rate hiking cycle. The decline in WPI bodes well for the CPI in future months as lower raw material prices are passed through by the producers to the consumers which will also help in reviving slowing consumption.
