Stock Market Update

On Friday, May 31, the Indian stock market benchmarks, Sensex and Nifty 50, ended five days of losses with modest gains. Key stocks like HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, L&T, and Reliance led the rise.

Recently, concerns over the Lok Sabha election of 2024 have pressured the domestic stock market. Market experts say significant capital outflows by foreign institutional investors (FIIs), mixed global signals, reduced expectations of rate cuts, and geopolitical worries have impacted market sentiment.

On Friday, there was modest buying interest in the domestic market, with both the benchmark indexes and the mid and small-cap indexes finishing higher.

The Sensex ended the day 76 points higher at 73,961.31 with 15 stocks rising. The Nifty 50 closed 42 points higher at 22,530.70 with 26 stocks in the green.

Dr. Joseph Thomas, Head of Research at Emkay Wealth Management, said, “The equity market remained volatile with a downward bias all through the week, trying to factor in the likely outcomes of the national election results. Early next week, as the counting of votes begins, the market may remain on edge until the final results are announced and a clear direction is established. While economic fundamentals remain strong, the market has become relatively more expensive recently, which could lead to some profit booking.”
