Stock market today: Following weakness in the global markets, after the US Fed Jerome Powell did not offer any timeframe for the US Fed rate cut in 2024, the Indian stock market witnessed its worst session since 4th June 2024. The Nifty 50 index lost 108 points and closed at the 24,324 mark; the BSE Sensex finished 426 points down at 79,924, whereas the Bank Nifty index ended 379 points lower at 52,189.

Trade setup for Thursday

On the outlook for Nifty today, Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, said, “The market’s near-term uptrend status remains intact. However, the market seems to have started signs of profit booking around 24,400 to 24,500. A move above 24,465 could negate this bearish setup. The immediate support for Nifty today is placed at 24,150.”

On the outlook for Bank Nifty today, Hrishikesh Yedve, AVP Technical and Derivatives Research at Asit C Mehta, said, “The Bank Nifty opened on a negative note and remained under pressure throughout the day. Finally, Bank Nifty settled the day negatively at 52,189 levels. Technically, on a daily scale, the Bank Nifty is currently placed near the lower end of the short-term consolidation zone (52,000-53,360). A relief rally is probable if Bank Nifty maintains its 52,000 support level. Conversely, sustenance below 52,000 levels could trigger further weakness in Bank Nifty.”

IT stocks in focus

Speaking on the outlook for the Indian stock market today, Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research at Motilal Oswal, said, “We expect the market to consolidate in the higher zone, and any dip is a buying opportunity for long-term investors. Corporate earnings will start today, with TCS first announcing the numbers. Thus, the IT sector is expected to remain in focus.”
