Stock market today: Despite weak global cues, the Indian stock market extended its winning streak for the fourth straight session on Friday. Nifty 50 index finished at the 21,894 level after climbing to a new peak of 21,928. BSE Sensex ended at the 72,568 mark after hitting a new peak of 72,568. The Nifty Bank index gained 271 points and closed at 47,709 level. Broad market indices rose less than the Nifty even as the focus remained on large-cap IT stocks, Bank stocks, and Reliance. The advance-decline ratio remained positive at 1.09:1.
“Rally in the IT sector and a 19% surge in India’s net direct tax collection supported domestic equities to make new highs on Friday. Nifty made a fresh all-time high of 21928 levels during the session and closed with handsome gains of 247 points (+1.1%) at 21894 levels. A sharp 5% up-move was seen in the IT sector after TCS and Infosys surprised the streets with their better-than-expected Q3 results. Nifty is now just 100 points away from crossing another milestone of the 22k zone,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head – Retail Research at Motilal Oswal.

On the outlook for the Nifty 50 today, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities said, “Nifty 50 on the weekly chart formed a reasonable bull candle with long lower shadow. The bearish doji pattern implication of last week has been nullified this week, as Nifty closed above the high of last week at 21,834 levels. The next upside level to be watched is around 22,200. Immediate support for Nifty today is at 21,750.”
On the outlook for Bank Nifty today, Ashwin Ramani, Derivatives & Technical Analyst at SAMCO Securities said, “Bank Nifty shrugged off its initial weakness and rose steadily throughout the day to close at 47,710, up 271 points. Heavy put writing (bulls’ entry) at 47,500 Strike, led to an Intraday rise in Bank Nifty. The resistance for the Index now shifts to the 48,000 level after today’s close. The option activity at the 47,500 level will provide cues about Bank Nifty’s future direction.”
On the outlook for the stock market today, Siddhartha Khemka of Motilal Oswal said, “In this week, the market will take cues from Q3 results, India’s inflation, and US PPI data. HDFC Bank, HUL, Ultratech, ICICI Bank, Asian Paints, and several mid-cap companies will announce their Q3 results this week. Thus, we might see stock-specific action. US markets will remain closed on Monday.”
