Sensex Today | Share Market Special Session Live Update: The National Stock Exchange (NSE) and the BSE held a special live trading session on Saturday to test their preparedness and resilience. 

The benchmark Sensex ended at 74,006, up 89 points in the second part of the special trading session, while the Nifty 50 closed at 22,502, up 36 points. Power Grid, Nestle, Zee, and Tata Motors were the top gainers, while JSW Steel, M&M and Maruti lagged.

Saturday's special session involved an intra-day switch from the primary site to the disaster recovery site for equity and equity derivative segments. The session was divided into two parts.

The goal of this special session was to evaluate participants' ability to handle significant disruptions or failures at the primary site and to ensure robust contingency measures are in place.

This transition was crucial for maintaining operational continuity in the event of any unforeseen circumstances impacting the main trading center in Mumbai, ensuring seamless and uninterrupted operations.

Meanwhile, in the US, stock markets ended mixed on Friday with the Dow Jones closing above the 40,000 mark for the first time and other indexes also scoring weekly gains.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied 134.21 points, or 0.34%, to 40,003.59, while the S&P 500 rose 6.17 points, or 0.12%, to 5,303.27. The Nasdaq Composite ended 12.35 points, or 0.07%, lower at 16,685.97. 

Earlier this week, data indicating softening consumer prices in April raised expectations that the US central bank might cut rates twice this year, starting in September.

However, much will depend on future price pressures, and Fed officials have suggested that US rates may not decrease anytime soon.

Sensex Today Special Session Live:  Nifty 50 outlook by Vaishali Parekh, vice president - technical research, Prabhudas Lilladher

The Nifty 50 witnessed a volatile week with an intraday low made near the 21,800 zone to recover strongly to touch 22,500 levels to improve the bias and sentiment, as well as easing out as of now. The index would have near-term support in the 22,300 zone, while on the upside, we anticipate further moves ahead to 22,600–22,900 levels in the coming days.

Bank Nifty took support near the 47,000 zone, and witnessing a decent pullback to move past the significant 50EMA level of 47,700 zone has improved the bias, and further rises are anticipated. One can expect the next targets of 49,000 and 49,700 levels in the coming days, with 47,400 maintained as the near-term support level. The support for the day is seen at 22,300 levels, while the resistance is seen at 22,600 levels. Bank Nifty would have a daily range of 47,800–48,400 levels.

Parekh recommended three stocks for today — Grasim Industries Ltd, Paras Defence and Space Technologies Ltd, and IRB Infrastructure Developers Ltd.
