Stock market today: Today the National Stock Exchange of India (NSE) and the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) will hold a special live trading session. During this session, there will be an intraday shift in the Equity and Equity Derivatives Segments from the Primary Site (PR) to the Disaster Recovery Site (DR). This special live trading session, which serves as a demonstration for their thorough preparation, will be divided into two separate parts. The first session is planned to begin at 9:15 IST and end at 10:00 IST, while the second session will run from 11:30 IST to 12:30 IST.

Friday's session saw gains in the domestic equity benchmark indices, the Sensex and Nifty 50, for the second day in a row due to purchases in Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M), Reliance Industries, and ITC.

The Nifty 50 regained the crucial 22,400 mark during the last hour, which caused the bears to evacuate. With a daily decrease of 1.38%, the India VIX also ended below the 20-point threshold at 19.99.

The 30-share BSE Sensex completed Friday's session higher, up 253.31 points, or 0.34%, at the 73,917.03 level, while the Nifty 50 closed up 62.25 points, or 0.28%, at 22,466.10 level.

The Nifty Midcap 50 Index finished 0.94% higher while the Nifty Smallcap Index ended 0.84% higher. 

The Indian market saw a strong comeback, according to Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services, amid conflicting global cues and uncertainty surrounding the US Federal Reserve. This recovery was primarily driven by the market's outperformance and strong Q4 results. 

“Further, some index heavyweight earnings surpassed expectations, and midcap and small-cap stocks continued to exhibit buying interest during dips. Auto and consumer durables particularly stood out with strong earnings," added Nair.

Trade setup for Saturday 

Nifty 50 Outlook 

Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst Kunal Shah of LKP Securities claims that although the Nifty 50 index maintained its momentum, it was unable to cross the 22,500 barrier, which is the point at which the call side is building the greatest amount of open interest. The index must firmly breach this level in order to reach its all-time high level in the near future. The 22,300 level serves as the downside support, and drops towards this level are a great time to start long bets.4o.

Bank Nifty Outlook

Tejas Shah, Technical Research, JM Financial & BlinkX, explains that this week's Bank Nifty underperformed in comparison to the Nifty 50. It closed around the 48,000 to 48,100 (+/- 50 point) barrier zone once more, and he thinks that the Bank Nifty can only continue to outperform if it can close above this resistance zone decisively; otherwise, profit booking is likely to continue. In terms of the downside, 48,150 / 48,500 represents resistance, while the support zone is located around 47,500-600 / 46,900-47,000.
