Indian Stock Market Weekly Wrap Up

Let us look back at the week that was, and catch up with all things stock markets before Monday hits us again in Arihant Capital’s Weekly Market Wrap-up.

In this article

As the nation gears up to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of its Independence with the “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign; the Indian contingent at the Commonwealth Games decided to bring home a different tricolour. India stood 4th in the total medal tally after securing 61 medals with 22 gold, 16 silver and 23 bronze.
While we are in the competitive spirit: a price war is all set to happen among the various airlines. Why you ask? The govt has removed the cap on airline prices. The US has also signed a key $280 billion bill aimed at bolstering U.S. chip manufacturing. This will surely make the Chinese dragon have a chip on its shoulder. Sit tight and grab some chips (pun intended).

Even though the markets showed a bullish streak while ending on Friday, the week ended on a sombre note with the passing away of Mr Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, a firm proponent of the Indian market’s growth story. A man who started his stock market journey with ₹5,000 and went on to become one of India’s richest people, was an inspiration for many.

Indian stock markets flirted with the bulls for the fourth week in a row. Nifty closed the week with an increase of 1.73% at 17,698 while BSE Sensex ended the week at 59,462 points up by 1.84%. Bank Nifty was up by 2.96% during the week, ending at 39,042.

On the sectoral front, Nifty Metal, Nifty Bank, PSU Bank, and Nifty Auto indices surged most, while, Nifty I.T, and Nifty Pharma closed on negative sentiment.

📈Market Outlook

–Mr. Ratnesh Goyal, Senior Research Analyst, Arihant Capital


On the daily chart of Nifty, we observe a series of narrow range body formations whereas, on the weekly chart a breakout of the Triangle pattern is visible. Nifty has started trading above all the important short-term moving averages. We believe that the market may consolidate here, but stocks specific action may continue. Nifty can face resistance around 17,800 levels. If it starts to trade above it then it can touch 18,050-18,300 levels, while on the downside support is 17,600 if it starts to trade below then it can test 17,400 and 17,300 levels.

Bank Nifty

On the daily chart of Bank Nifty, we observe a higher high formation; on the weekly chart, the index has given a Triangle pattern breakout. We believe that Bank Nifty may outperform Nifty in the upcoming weeks. In the coming trading session if it trades above 39,200 then it can touch 39,600 and 40,000 levels, however, the downside support comes at 38,800 below that it can reach 38,500-38,200 levels.
