Stock Market News: Domestic equity benchmark indices, the Sensex and the Nifty 50, began the first day of the May series with modest gains amid positive global cues and led by gains in information technology (IT), media, and metal stocks. 

The Nifty 50 was up by 50.10 points, begin trading at 22,620.40, while the Sensex rose by 169.87 points, kicking off at 74,509.31.

Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services Dr. V K Vijayakumar stated that yesterday's significant DII buying of Rs. 6167 crores entirely outweighed the ongoing FII selling, demonstrating the market's resilience for a fifth day in a row. The buy-on-dips approach has shown to be effective in the current bull market, and investors should keep using it.

 US data shows that the US economy is weakening. Although Q1 GDP growth was 1.6% less than anticipated, the Fed is unlikely to cut rates in the upcoming sessions because inflation is still very high, according to Vijayakumar.

Share Market Tips and Nifty 50 Outlook by Rajesh Palviya, SVP - Technical and Derivatives Research, Axis Securities

However, the index is well placed and sustaining above its 20, 50, 100, and 200-day SMA. These averages are also inching up along with every rally, which signifies a long-term bullish trend.
