Market Outlook

The day proved to be rather lackluster in market activity. It opened with a slight gap up from yesterday’s close, showing marginal upward movement before closing well within the previous day’s range. This cautious behavior suggested a lack of full confidence in further upward momentum, resulting in a day of consolidation. Despite significant gains in the past three sessions, today marked a pause in the market’s upward trajectory. Overall, it was a neutral day with a slightly positive bias.
