The domestic market today was under the influence of a global market rally sparked by US FED rate cuts in March 2024. As the Federal Reserve of the US signalled towards possible rate cuts at the start of next year, the global market turned positive which pushed Nifty 50 to a new high.

Today, the equity benchmark index, Nifty 50 soared 1.23% and closed at 21182.70. However, the index touched 21210.90 today and this is the first time that it crossed the 21200 mark.

  2. Tech Mahindra: The next top nifty gainer today was Tech Mahindra with a rise of 3.67%. This is again a rise due to the FED’s signals about rate cuts. As the IT sector picked up in the West, the effect can be felt in the domestic market as well.

HCL Technologies: The fifth top nifty gainer today was HCL Technologies, which surged 3.24% following the rise in the overall sector and as well as after the Department of Transport and Planning of Victoria chose HCL Tech to provide digital technology support to transform the customer experiences.
