(2)

The rally in the domestic stock market continued which started yesterday with the Fed’s signal towards rate cuts, and IPI going up in India. A sharp fall in the bond yields added to the gains of the domestic market as FIIs returned especially in the IT and financial services segment.

“Market is likely to consolidate after the run-up in the first half of this month. Positive news flows and buy-on dips can keep the market resilient. The strongest tailwind for the market now is the sharp dip in the US bond yield (the 10-year is around 3.95 per cent) triggering large capital flows to emerging markets like India. Since large cap financials and IT are reasonably valued and have been FII’s favourite sectors, these segments will continue to do well.” – VK Vijaykumar of Geojit Financial.

The Nifty 50 went up 1.29% and closed at 21456.65 up from the previous day’s close at 21182.70. Today the equity benchmark index touched 21492.30.
