Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services, said, “Nifty traded in the negative zone throughout the day. However, a recovery in the last half hour of the session helped the indices close marginally higher by 22 points at 24,324. The broader market outperformed, with Nifty Midcap 100 and Smallcap 100 gaining 0.8% each. Sector-wise, it was mixed, with buying seen in Oil & Gas, Pharma and PSU Banks. Defence sector witnessed gains after data was released showing that India recorded 16.8% YoY growth in FY24, the highest ever increase in production value.”

Khemka said, “After a ~7% rally in the last month, we expect the market to consolidate in a higher zone. In the week ahead, we expect stock and sector-specific action as the market starts taking cues from Q1FY25 earnings. On the macro front, investors will keep an eye on inflation data to be released by India, the US and China.”

Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services said, “Domestic markets traded with mixed trends, with the banking sector dominating the rally. Top lender banks reported a sequential decline in deposit growth in the June quarter, adding to concerns. While midcaps and smallcaps outperformed and respective BSE indices hit all-time highs. Globally, investors are now awaiting US non-farm payrolls data to be released later today to gauge the direction of the US Fed's possible rate cut.”
