The Indian market struggled to recover due to mounting influence from weak global cues, resulting in sustained selling pressure on Thursday. The escalation of US bond yields is anticipated to restrict the influx of foreign investments into the Indian market, further impacting market dynamics.
Several factors have contributed to the market’s ongoing weakness, including the faltering Chinese economy and Fitch’s warning to downgrade US mid-sized banks. In the absence of positive triggers, this prevailing weakness is expected to persist in the near term.
Option data indicates a broader trading range between 19,000 to 19,700 zones, with an immediate trading range estimated to be between 19,200 to 19,500 zones.
