December 11, 2023

New Delhi, India

Sensex Creates History at 70,000

In a landmark moment for the Indian stock market, the BSE Sensex has breached the 70,000 mark for the first time during early trade, signalling robust growth and investor confidence. This historic achievement was fueled by a rally in bank stocks, contributing to a positive end in a session marked by volatility.

Nifty Records New All-Time High

Simultaneously, the Nifty50 reached a new all-time high, closing in around 21,000. The market witnessed fluctuations throughout the day, highlighting the challenges and uncertainties prevailing in the financial landscape.

Both Sensex and Nifty closed at 69,928.53 up+102.93 

Sectoral Performance: Winners and Losers


  • PSU Bank, FMCG, Power, Metal, and Realty sectors reported gains ranging from 0.5% to 1%.
  • Top performers on the Nifty include UPL, UltraTech Cement, ONGC, Adani Enterprises, and LTIMindtree.


  • Pharma sector faced a downturn with a 0.4% decline.
  • Dr Reddy’s Laboratories, Cipla, Axis Bank, BPCL, and M&M were among the day’s losers.

Broader Markets Shine

The BSE midcap index surged by 1%, and the smallcap index added 0.7%, outperforming the benchmark indices. This indicates a broader market rally, reflecting positive sentiment among investors beyond large-cap stocks.

Volatility Persists, India VIX Up

Despite the market highs, volatility remains a key factor. The India VIX rose by nearly 4%, suggesting caution among investors. This volatility underscores the need for careful navigation in the current financial landscape.

Oil Prices Hold Steady Amid Global Developments

Global Impact: Oil prices held steady, influenced by U.S. efforts to replenish strategic reserves. Brent crude futures edged up to $75.86 a barrel, while WTI crude futures were at $71.22. Lingering concerns about oversupply and softer fuel demand growth continue to shape the oil market.

Market Sentiment and Looking Ahead

The market’s positive momentum, coupled with caution due to volatility, reflects a complex economic landscape. Investor sentiment remains optimistic, propelled by Sensex and Nifty record-breaking highs and sectoral gains. However, the persistent challenges in oil markets and uncertainties in certain sectors warrant careful monitoring in the days ahead.
