This is Abhinav Kaul and I will take you through the motions of today’s session on Dalal Street and bring you cues and trading tips from market veterans for Wednesday.
It was a day of celebrations for the domestic equity market as Nifty50 claimed the magical 10,000 level for the first time ever. However, the index fell from the dizzying heights and ended on a flat note.
The market opened with the BSE Sensex at fresh record high of 32,374.30 and Nifty taking the spotlight at 10,011.
Later, Sensex ended 17 points down at 32,228.27 while Nifty was 2 points down at 9,964.55.
Shares of Axis Bank, Bharti Airtel and TCS were the top gainers on Sensex. On the other hand, Lupin, Tata Motors and Coal India were the top losers.
BSE Midcap gained 86 points to settle at 15,313 with shares of Mahindra and Mahindra Finance, Indiabulls Housing Finance and Tata Communications surging up to 10 per cent.
BSE Smallcap index also gained 18 points to end the session at 16,054 with shares of Parsvnath, Gujarat NRE Coke and JP Power rallying over 19 per cent.
Some experts noted that the ongoing rally has partly been boosted by recent short coverings, surge in shares of Reliance Industries, which accounts for over 6 per cent of the index weightage, and other factors such as FIIs and RBI rate cuts.
