Stock market today: Following strong global market sentiments on the US Fed rate cut buzz, the Indian stock market ended higher on Wednesday. Strong buying was witnessed across segments; all three frontline indices touched a new lifetime high. The Nifty 50 index ended at 24,286 after a new high of 24,309. The BSE Sensex finished at 79,986 after climbing to a new peak of 80,074. The Bank Nifty index ended at 53,089 after hitting a new lifetime high of 53,256. Cash market volumes on the NSE rose 2.4% to 1.36 lakh crores. The broad market indices rose more than the Nifty even as the advance-decline ratio rose to 1.7:1.

Trade setup for Thursday

On the outlook for Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, said, "The overall trend of Nifty remains positive. Further consolidation or minor dips from here could be a buying opportunity per the bullish pattern of higher tops and bottoms. Nifty, as per the long-term chart, remains strong, and one may expect upside momentum to resume shortly after the consolidation movement. Immediate support is at 23980. The next upside resistance is around 24400."

On the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Hrishikesh Yedve, AVP Technical and Derivatives Research at Asit C Mehta, said, "Nifty Bank also reached a RECord high of 53,256.70 in the morning trade, driven by HDFC Bank, and then witnessed some profit booking on higher levels. Finally, Nifty Bank settled the day at a record high of 53,089 levels. From a technical standpoint, the index is consolidating in the band of 52,000-53,200. If the index sustains above 53,200, then the rally could extend towards 54,000-54,200 levels."

Pointing towards the reason for the uptrend on Dalal Street, Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research at Motilal Oswal, said, “Markets cheered the dovish commentary from US Fed Chair Powell. This, along with healthy domestic macros and hope of a growth-focused budget, led to a positive up-move in the market. We expect this ongoing momentum to continue in the near term.”

US Fed meeting minutes

The members of the US Federal Reserve's rate-setting committee said last month that the bank's employment and inflation goals were moving into "better balance," with some calling for "patience" on interest rate cuts, according to minutes of the meeting published Wednesday.
