Monday’s strength could be attributed to the following factors:
1) Indian markets were riding on the strength it derived from the global markets, analyst Nilesh Jain said. Favourable global cues did the trick for local equities, he added. On Friday, US markets ended strongly with Dow 30 taking the lead and closing with 800-point gains.
2) US markets are bottoming out as the dust around Fed Pivot is settling, analyst Sandeep Jain said. The sentiment has trickled down and as a result of this we are seeing a strong rally in markets, globally, he added.
US GDP report released last week points to economic recovery and quelled fears around the recession. The US economy grew at better-than-expected 2.6 per cent for the July- September quarter, snapping successive economic contraction. The growth has been in the middle of high inflation and interest rates. With favourable GDP data, it is unlikely that the Fed will change its stance on monetary policy and a Fed Pivot seems unlikely. A Fed pivot happens when the Federal Reserve reverses its policy outlook and changes course from expansionary to contractionary and vice versa.
3) Buying activity was prevalent in index stocks and broader markets. Auto, banks and financial services taking the lead.
4) Rupee was also trading flat at 82.42 against the Dollar lending stability to the domestic markets, expert Anuj Gupta of IIFL Securities said.
