After a steep decline and loss of billions of rupees on Monday, the Indian stock market rebounded today with both Sensex and Nifty 50 closing markets with more than 2.5% in gains.
Heavy resilience shown by the domestic market amidst mixed global cues, and strong support from foreign institutional investors helped the Indian stock market get back on track.
Increased interest in buying banking stocks and announcements made by Mukesh Ambani during the Annual General Meeting of Reliance Industries Limited also reportedly helped bulls in the market to have a dream run.
Market analysts had earlier forecasted bearish performance in the stock market as high volatility in the capital markets around the world and concerns regarding interest rate hikes kept investors cautious.
It is also important to note that Indian stocks are currently performing at a premium valuation compared to stock exchanges of other emerging economies. This phenomenon also makes sure that foreign investors don’t lose hope in Indian stocks.
Along with stocks, the Indian rupee also made the biggest one-day gain of one year as the partially convertible rupee surged 0.6% to 79.45. This has been one of the biggest sessions for Indian rupee since Aug 27, 2021
