At the beginning of the new month, the domestic stock markets witnessed a strong surge, affirming the continuation of the ongoing rally. Supported by positive global cues, benchmark indices concluded Monday’s trading session with significant gains. Within the domestic market, the buying momentum was driven by heavyweight stocks, and speculation regarding a merger involving HDFC Group companies generated interest among investors, resulting in active participation from buyers.

During the trading day, the BSE Sensex, consisting of 30 major stocks, registered a notable gain of 486.49 points, equivalent to 0.75%, closing at 65,205.05. Simultaneously, the NSE’s Nifty50, comprised of 50 large-cap stocks, experienced a surge of 133.50 points or 0.70%, settling at 19,322.55. While the broader market segments, including the BSE midcap and smallcap indices, outperformed the benchmark indices by closing in positive territory, there was an increase in India VIX, a measure of market volatility, rising approximately 7% to the level of 11.54.

According to Shrikant Chouhan, the Head of Research (Retail) at Kotak Securities, the market’s impressive upward momentum has persisted due to positive factors such as robust June GST collections and the arrival of monsoon across various regions in recent days, which have buoyed investor sentiment. The ongoing rally has been primarily driven by substantial foreign fund inflows, and India’s favorable performance across various economic indicators may further enhance the inflow of funds in the near future.

According to the analyst, the Nifty index showed a trading range between 19,250 and 19,335, with a positive short-term technical outlook. However, there is a possibility of profit booking at higher levels due to temporary overbought conditions. Traders should closely monitor the levels around 19,250-19,180 as crucial support, while the range of 19,400-19,435 is expected to pose significant resistance.
