Stock Market on Friday

The Indian stock market benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, ended higher on Friday, June 14, led by gains in the auto, consumer durable and financial stocks. The BSE Sensex gained 181.87 points, or 0.24% to close at 76,992.77, while the Nifty 50 settled 66.70 points, or 0.29%, higher at 23,465.60. The benchmark Nifty 50 hit a record high of 23,490.40 during the session.

Broader markets supported the rally as the Nifty Midcap 100 surged 1.05% and Nifty SmallCap 100 rose 0.8%, outperforming the frontliners.

Nifty 50 consolidated in a narrow range throughout the last week and volatility subsided post the election results event as traders focused more on stock specific approach. Nifty closed just below 23,500 with weekly gains of three-tenths of a percent.

“Our markets continued to march higher with new milestones seen post the recent election week volatility. In this up move, FIIs have covered much of their short positions and added new longs which led to the momentum. On the other hand, confidence has resumed amongst market participants with regards to political stability and hence, a lot of stock-specific positive momentum is seen,” said Ruchit Jain, Lead Research, 5paisa.com.

In the coming week, he believes the initial hurdle of Nifty 50 will be seen around 23,500, which has acted as a hurdle in the last week. 

“Once this is surpassed, the Nifty could rally towards 23,900 - 24,000 which is the retracement zone of the recent correction. On the lower side, 23,300 followed by 23,000 - 23,900 zones are the supports. Any dips towards the support should be seen as a buying opportunity,” said Jain.

He advises traders to look for stock-specific opportunities and trade with a positive bias.
