Market Outlook

Today, Nifty experienced a notable bounce, moving away from a concerning neckline it had closed below in two previous sessions. This movement was largely inspired by the anticipation of the Federal Reserve’s meeting and the expectation of three rate cuts in 2024. Despite the initial gap up and bounce due to these expectations, whether this recovery sustains remains to be seen.

Nifty Heatmap

Today’s market showed a predominantly green heatmap, reflecting broad gains across various sectors, including power, utilities, infrastructure, banking, IT, and automotive

Sectoral Overview

Public sector enterprise stocks led the gains with a 3.5% increase, indicating strong sectoral leadership in the ongoing rally.

The recent Fed meeting and its implications, coupled with Japan’s unexpected interest rate hike, have cast a shadow of uncertainty over the market. However, the bounce today has offered some relief, reducing the losses seen over the past week. With only four sessions left in March, the market might stabilize above the crucial neckline, barring any new developments.

Mid & Small Cap Performance

Mid caps impressively moved above resistance, setting a potential new support level, while small caps showed a modest gain, presenting a promising setup for further upward movement. But nevertheless, a very good open is equal to low bar on small caps.

Nifty Bank Overview

Nifty bank actually was a disappointment where we did open higher, but there was no gain from the open on the chart. And you can see the market closed exactly where it opened. So very, very indecisive movement on the Nifty bank.

Nifty Junior

Nifty Next 50 reclaimed losses from the last five days, signaling robustness in this segment.

Nifty PSE

Public sector enterprises are on the brink of a breakout, suggesting potential for significant gains if they surpass resistance levels.

Nifty Metal Index

The real estate and metals sectors are showing signs of momentum, with real estate potentially setting up for new highs and metals nearing a significant breakout.

Nifty Realty

Nifty FMCG

FMCG sector appears to be one of the market’s weaker segments, struggling amid broader market fluctuations.


Gold’s dramatic rise post-Fed announcement showcases the impact of global monetary policies on commodity markets, highlighting technical patterns that suggest a continued upward trajectory.

Today’s market recovery has eased concerns for many, reinforcing the importance of a disciplined, long-term approach to investing. Weekend Investing emphasizes gradual capital allocation and adherence to market trends over trying to preempt market movements. Despite occasional setbacks, disciplined adherence to strategy tends to yield favorable outcomes over time, underscoring the effectiveness of momentum investing in navigating market volatility.
