Last Friday, domestic stocks surged alongside the global uptrend following decisions by the US and UK central banks to maintain interest rates. Despite a sluggish start, the Nifty 50 index gradually climbed, finishing the day with a gain of 85 points (+0.4%) at the 22097 mark. The broader market also closed positively, with all sectors except IT recording gains. Among the top performers were Auto, Pharma, and Realty. However, the IT sector experienced some selling pressure after a downward revision in revenue forecasts by the US tech giant, Accenture, for FY24. Accenture adjusted its full-year revenue growth outlook to a range of 1 percent to 3 percent, down from the earlier projection of 2 percent to 5 percent.
