Stock specific moves push Sensex up for 5th straight week

It was a week of stock specific moves. The market ended positive for the fifth consecutive week thanks to a smart rally in stocks like TCS, HDFC Bank, Axis Bank and Reliance Industries in an otherwise a holiday-truncated expiry week. Globally, low probability of US Federal Reserve hiking interest rates in US in its March policy meeting also contributed to the buoyant sentiment.

During the week ended February 10, the S&P BSE Sensex added 1.5% or 424 points to settle at 28893, while Nifty50 gained 1.3% or 118 points to close at 8939.

Midcap and Smallcap stocks also mirrored the gains in the frontline indices to rise nearly 1% each.

Reblog – Intermediate Trend : uptrend still on

The post is reblogged from this link. It is authored by Mastermind, Deepak Mohoni

The market remains in an intermediate uptrend with the sensex, nifty and the Nifty Midcap 100 all in one. The uptrend began on June 24 when the sensex bottomed out at 25,911. As of now, the indices will have to go below their June 24 lows for a downtrend, but those levels will rise to the top of the minor decline that has set in. The levels are 27,900 for the sensex, 7,925 for the nifty, and 12,900 for the Midcap 100.

The US indices have now entered an intermediate uptrend. The FTSE-100, BOVESPA, Shanghai and our market were already in one. The other markets are still in intermediate downtrends.

Brexit spooks the markets globally!

The Sensex recouped 500 points loss in the last couple of hours of trade, especially after recovery in Europe but still ended sharply lower after the UK voted to leave European Union.

The index fell 604.51 points or 2.24 percent to 26397.71 and the Nifty slipped 181.85 points or 2.20 percent to 8088.60.

About 1823 shares declined against 709 advancing shares on BSE.
