Global markets take support, Will IT power Nifty to 16000? Pre-market Report, 15 July 2021
Good Morning Everyone, It is a very exciting day for all of us as we officially launch our MPI Invest today! Note the date, 15th July 2021. I am sure we will grow up to be one of the most sought-after investment communities in the world over a period of time.
Yesterday, the Nifty took a strong bullish turn, supported by the IT, and we could see Infosys coming in with good results yesterday as mentioned in our post-market report yesterday. If you missed reading that, you can read it by clicking here.
Global markets closed flat yesterday but the jitters of rising inflation in the US and hence the rate hikes have been brushed off by Powell, stating that Inflation will be back in control soon and the FED plans to keep the "easy policy" and keeping the rates low for now. This gave confidence back to investors and we could see S&P jumping to record intraday highs again.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.13%, the S&P 500 added 0.12% and the Nasdaq Composite slipped 0.22%.
MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was little changed in early trade while Japan’s Nikkei dropped 0.4%.
The trends on SGX nifty signal a very small gap-up opening by about 10 points from yesterday's closing. However, we need to wait and see the reaction of Infosys results on the market today. Also, we have Wipro coming out with their results today. There can be profit booking seen mostly in Wipro as it has been rising up all these days.
Today being the weekly expiry, we can expect some good volatility and as FIIs continue to sell in the market, we might see some profit booking as we near 15900, so, it may not be the right time to go for any new buying unless you want to risk it, however, you can consider booking partial profits when the market reaches close to 15900.
The market capitalisation of BSE-listed companies reached an all-time high of Rs 2,33,06,440.17 crore on Wednesday, mainly driven by optimistic sentiments in the broader market.

The market capitalisation of BSE-listed companies reached the new record high of Rs 2,33,06,440.17 crore at the end of the day’s trade. Investors’ wealth has jumped Rs 1,42,806.24 crore in the two days of the market rally.
