Stock Market Live: Sensex jumps over 700 points, Nifty above 14,700; financials, metals rise: NEW IPO Listing…Nazara

Petrol Prices down:  Rupee gains:

Stock Market Live: Indian indices were trading higher on Tuesday boosted by banking, financials, and metal stocks, on the back of a rise in Asian peers. Asian peers were in the green as Wall Street pared earlier losses driven by the banking sector on fears that issues with a defaulting hedge fund could spread throughout the banking sector.

The Nifty is currently trading around a resistance patch which is 14,700-14,800. We need to get past these levels on a closing basis so that we can summarize that the short-term downtrend is over for the time being. If we can keep above this level, we could be headed higher to 15,200-15,300. If we collapse from the current levels and break 14,500 on a closing basis, there is every possibility we go down to retest the recent lows.

“Sharp decline in FII selling coupled with large buying by DIIs can support the market and even take it higher. But there are many concerns like a surge in Covid cases, particularly in economically crucial Maharashtra, appreciation in US 10- year bond yield above 1.7%, and the dollar index moving up to 92.8 levels. DIIs and retail investors are likely to be buyers in banking, IT, cement and metal stocks which look attractive at present levels. Year-end considerations also are likely to lead to further DII buying.”.

Indian rupee logs over 4% gain this fiscal amid headwinds on the economic front

The Indian rupee has logged over 4 percent gain so far this fiscal, as sustained foreign fund inflows and the RBI’s deft policy maneuvering ensured a strong year for the Indian currency despite headwinds on the economic front, according to experts. The local unit is likely to average around 73.50-74 in the financial year 2021-22, as, despite a vaccine, the coronavirus hysteria still persists and may continue to grapple the foreign exchange market, experts said. The financial year 2020-21 has been a roller-coaster ride for the rupee due to COVID-19. The pandemic-induced massive sell-off in the equity market led to the rupee to breach a record low of 76.90. However, the optimism over vaccines, easing of lockdown restrictions, infusion of stimulus by governments and central banks all over the world enthused investors with a general sense of optimism, and the rupee vaulted back to the 72 zones.
