Outlook 2024

Going forward, markets are eyeing a potential upside of 15 per cent from the current levels as Nifty 50 is likely to claim the 25,000-mark by the end of 2024 and the Sensex target is set at 83,250, according to domestic brokerage firm ICICIdirect. 

‘’Our December 2024 target for Nifty is set at 25,000 wherein we have valued Nifty at 20x PE on FY26E EPS of 1,250/share with corresponding Sensex target set as 83,250; offering a potential upside of ~15 per cent from current index levels,'' said Pankaj Pandey, Head Research, ICICIdirect.

Market crucial events that should be tracked in 2024 are the upcoming quarterly earnings season, the Budget and the General elections, the Fed rate decision and the US presidential election, according to analysts. 

Market observers broadly highlighted that several factors such as sustained domestic mutual fund inflows, return of foreign buying, better-than-expected economic growth, and healthy corporate earnings will contribute to the market's rally in 2024.

‘’Sliding crude oil prices is likely to keep inflation under check, all of which should augur well for Indian equity markets going ahead. The rally in the market is likely to further continue over the next three-six months and Sensex, Nifty could see another five-seven per cent appreciation while mid-cap, small-cap indices may witness another 10-15 per cent jump,'' said Rakeshh Mehta, Chairman of Mehta Equities Ltd.

‘’The immediate focus would be on Q3 earnings which should be in-line with street expectations and any deviation in earnings would be a reason for markets to go into profit booking zone. The Budget would be a no event and major focus would be on Lok Sabha elections in May 2024, which would drive the overall market sentiment,'' added Mehta.
