Despite this rise, both benchmarks were poised for a slight weekly decline, following three consecutive weeks of more than 10 per cent gains, largely attributed to concerns about a tight global supply, as OPEC+ continued its production cuts, the report said.
Asian markets on Friday kicked off the day with a sluggish start, mirroring the overnight declines seen in US markets. Notably, Japan’s Nikkei experienced the most significant decline in the region, dropping by approximately 1 per cent, all in anticipation of the upcoming rate decision by the Bank of Japan.

Wall Street experienced a significant downturn overnight, with the S&P 500 suffering its worst day since March, losing 1.6 per cent of its value, according to an Associated Press report.

The US Federal Reserve’s indication of a smaller-than-expected interest rate cut for the next year compounded the market’s concerns.
The high-growth tech sector, including Amazon, Nvidia, and Tesla, bore the brunt of the losses, causing the Nasdaq composite to drop 1.8 per cent. The Dow Jones Industrial Average also declined by 370 points, or 1.1 per cent.

On Thursday, the two key equity benchmarks, Sensex and Nifty, closed lower for the third consecutive session as the US Federal Reserve signaling a prolonged period of higher interest rates weighed on investors. At the closing bell, the S&P BSE Sensex was down 570 points or 0.85 per cent at 66,230.24, while the Nifty declined 159.05 points or 0.8 per cent to 19,742.35.
As per the analysts, ongoing foreign institutional investor (FII) selling, Weekly F&O expiry, and elevated crude oil prices added to investors’ concerns. Global market weakness further dampened sentiments on Dalal Street.
According to technical analysts, going forward, sharp reversals like this with more gaps either going up or down, it suggest that the trend might continue for a while in the same direction, reported the Economic Times. As per the analysts, now, what traders should pay attention to is a support level at around 19,550 points. This level is calculated using a weekly 10-period EMA (Exponential Moving Average). While there might be a small upward bounce from this support level, experts believe that it could be an opportunity to sell rather than buy.
Additionally, the daily momentum indicator has given a negative crossover, which is considered a signal to sell. It aligns with the recent price movement, indicating a bearish trend, the report said. Nifty is currently at a support level, and while there might be a temporary bounce, it’s uncertain whether this is a good time to buy.

“The major contribution towards the rise all-India index came from the food group to the extent of 8.38 points and 7.69 points, respectively mainly due to increase in prices of rice, wheat atta, pulses, milk, meat-goat, sugar, gur, chillies-dry, turmeric, garlic, onion, mixed spices, etc,” the ministry said.
