Share Market Closing: Benchmar indices Sensex and Nifty extended their rally seen last week to close at fresh highs on Monday but with limited gains. Sensex hit a peak of 70,000 in early trade, while Nifty rose to a high of 21,000. However, they came off their day's high later in volatile trade and closed with mild gains. Investors are closely watching global trends, key macroeconomic data, and the forthcoming US Federal Reserve policy meeting as the primary drivers for the week's movements in domestic equity markets. The focus of the markets is expected to be on significant data releases, including inflation figures from both India and the US. Experts see a rise in Indian inflation, while US figures are anticipated to remain stable. Additionally, there's an expectation of growth in Indian industrial and manufacturing production.
The benchmark indices marked their sixth consecutive week of gains last week, seeing their best stretch of weekly increases in three years. This positive momentum followed the Reserve Bank of India's (RBI) Monetary Policy announcement and a revised upward GDP forecast. Last week, the total market capitalization of seven out of the top ten most valuable companies increased by ₹3.04 lakh crore. This surge was led by HDFC Bank and LIC, which stood out as the largest gainers, reflecting a generally positive trend in the equity market.
On Monday, Asian stock markets saw a mixed trend and European stocks traded on a cautious note ahead of a busy week featuring five central bank meetings and the release of U.S. inflation data, crucial in determining market expectations for a series of quick rate cuts in the coming year.
