Stock market today: Day trading guide for Nifty 50 to Sensex, seven stocks to buy or sell today — April 2

Stock market today: On account of positive global market sentiments, the Indian stock market ended higher for the third day in a row on Monday. The Nifty 50 index hit a new peak of 22,529 whereas the BSE Sensex touched a new lifetime high of 74,254. The Bank Nifty index finished 453 points higher at the 47,578 mark. However, the broad market continues to outperform the frontline indices of Dalal Street. The small-cap index skyrocketed nearly 3 percent whereas the mid-cap index surged 1.64 percent.

“Domestic equities started the new financial year on a strong note and touched a new all-time high. It continued the previous day’s momentum following positive economic data releases from the US and China. Nifty opened the gap up and maintained strength throughout the session to close with gains of 135 points (+0.6%) at 22462 levels. The broader market sharply outperformed with Nifty Midcap100/ Nifty SMallcap100 rallying 1.7%/3.3%. Except Auto and FMCG all the sectors ended with gains. Realty and Metals were the biggest gainers of ~4%. India’s housing demand witnessed robust growth in the first quarter of 2024 with unsold inventory falling to 7%, leading to a rally in realty stocks. Metal stocks too saw buying interest post robust PMI data release from China. However, auto stocks saw subdued interest after posting a mixed set of monthly sales numbers. Overall, global sentiments got a boost led by lower than expected US PCE data and robust US GDP numbers which strengthened the hopes of a rate cut,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research at Motilal Oswal.

On the outlook for the Nifty 50 today, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, “The overall larger trend of Nifty remains positive and the market is now in an attempt of breaking above the crucial overhead resistance of 22500-22550 levels. Though Nifty is now placed at the crucial hurdle of around 22500 levels, the overall chart pattern remains positive and we are unlikely to see any sharp decline from here. Any consolidation or dip could be a buying opportunity. Eventually, Nifty could show a decisive upside breakout of 22500 levels, and the near-term upside target would be around 22800. Immediate support is at 22200 levels.”

On the outlook for the Bank Nifty today, Ashwin Ramani, Derivatives & Technical Analyst at SAMCO Securities said, “Bank Nifty traded sideways after opening with a strong gap up and closed at 47,578, up 454 points. The 47,500 Strike saw a fierce battle between the call & put writers. The call writers (Bears) eventually managed to keep the put writers (Bulls) quiet throughout the day by keeping the pressure on them. The total OI on the call side at the 47,500 Strike is 1,57,224 contracts compared to 1,49,483 contracts on the put side The option activity at the 47,500 Strike will provide cues about Bank Nifty’s upcoming direction.”

On triggers that may dictate the Indian stock market today, Siddhartha Khemka of Motilal Oswal said, “Now all eyes will be on RBI monetary policy due this Friday where status quo is expected but commentary would be keenly watched. The market is expected to continue its positive momentum but the journey could be volatile on the back of elections and Q4 earnings this month.”
