Market Overview: Domestic equity benchmarks edged higher, tracking the performance of their Asian counterparts. At the latest count, the Sensex was up 101.91 points at 75,492.41 and the Nifty50 had increased by 33.2 points to 22,965.65, both indices gaining 0.14 percent.

Aditya Gaggar, Director of Progressive Shares, commented on sector trends: “The Auto sector has reached the upper end of the rising channel, suggesting a potential short-term reversal; however, stock-specific activity is expected to continue. The Energy sector’s bearish divergence indicates a temporary pause in its uptrend, but we remain bullish on Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) within the segment.”

Gaggar also noted that the metals sector, after a significant rally, is currently consolidating within a narrow range and is likely to resume its upward trend following a breakout. He highlighted strong breakouts in several PSU banking stocks, such as Indian Overseas Bank (IOB), Punjab & Sind Bank (PSB), and UCO Bank, signaling an extension of their uptrends due to symmetrical triangle breakouts.

Broader Market: The broader market indices also traded positively, with the Nifty Midcap 100 and Smallcap 100 indices in green. The high-beta Nifty Bank index rose by 0.32 percent, reaching 49,438.65.
