Markets 5 26.webp


The SGX Nifty gained 0.23% in trade on Wednesday morning, signaling that domestic indices NSE Nifty 50 and BSE Sensex would open on a negative basis, snapping a four-day winning streak. Nifty futures were 42 points lower on the Singaporean exchange at 18,687.5. Benchmark indices NSE Nifty 50 and BSE Sensex ended Tuesday’s session in the green as Bank Nifty hit a new all-time high of 44,498.60. The Nifty 50 rose 0.19% to 18,634 and BSE Sensex advanced 123 points to 62,969.

“The domestic market continued its rally as recent Q4 results indicated improvement in demand. Further, expectations of a normal monsoon and a drop in international commodity prices support a rise in the margin profile. The underlying trend is strong, supported by strong liquidity, the negative slope of the interest yield, and the forecast of strong QoQ growth in Q4 FY23 GDP vs. 4.4% in Q3,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services
