Stock market today: Following strong global cues, the Indian stock market finished higher for the fourth day in a row on Wednesday. The Nifty 50 index gained 34 points and closed at the 22,402 level, the BSE Sensex surged 114 points and ended at the 73,852 mark whereas the Bank Nifty index went up 218 points and closed at the 48,189 level.

Trade setup for Thursday

On the outlook for Nifty today, Jatin Gedia, Technical Research Analyst at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas said, "The Nifty 50 index opened on a positive note on Wednesday and consolidated to close in the green up 34 points. On the daily charts, we can observe that the Nifty 50 index has been trading around the 22,400 mark, which coincides with the 61.82% Fibonacci retracement level of the previous fall from 22,776 to 21,777 and also the lower end of the gap area formed on the 15th April. A brief consolidation is likely to continue considering the sharp run-up. The hourly momentum indicator has a negative crossover which also suggests some consolidation before it starts a new cycle on the upside. On the upside we expect the Nifty 50 index to target levels of 22,560 from a short-term perspective."

On the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Kunal Shah, Senior Technical & Derivative Analyst at LKP Securities said, "The Bank Nifty saw a sideways trading session following a positive start, holding firm around the support zone of 48000-47800. Immediate resistance is noted at 48500, and a decisive breakthrough could signal further upside towards 49500/50000 levels. With the overall sentiment remaining bullish, any pullbacks towards the support zone should be viewed as buying opportunities."

On triggers that may dictate the Indian stock market today, Motilal Oswal Private Wealth report said, "Over the last five years, India's capital markets have witnessed vibrant participation from domestic retail savers, with Demat accounts surging to 151 mn in Mar'24 from 36 mn in Mar'19. India Inc. has raised USD 92.9 bn through primary markets during this period. Expectations of political continuity augur well for market sentiment. Corporate earnings growth may witness moderation relative to the pace witnessed over the last few years but is expected to remain steady given the robust health of India Inc.'s balance sheets and the ongoing capex cycle. BFSI, Infrastructure, and manufacturing are likely to be the key focus sectors going forward."
