Sensex Today Live: Domestic equity benchmarks opened higher on Thursday amid a sharp fall in crude oil prices. US stocks too closed at a 4-week high at overnight trade, improving domestic sentiment. At 9.16 am, the BSE Sensex was trading 450.71 points or 0.76 per cent higher at 59,479.62. Nifty50 was trading at 17,757, up 132.60 points or 0.75 per cent. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services said that there is a clear message from the market now. Despite high valuation, global headwinds from elevated inflation, slowing global economy and an ultra-hawkish Fed, the domestic market has been surprisingly resilient. The tape is signaling momentum and bullishness. Investors should not ‘fight the tape’ and take a contrarian view, at least in the near-term.“The market may be discounting the robust growth revival in India and the consequent earnings growth. The buy on dips strategy has worked very well in this rally and it makes sense to continue with the strategy,” Vijaykumar added. Domestic economy-facing segments such as banks, autos, capital goods, telecom and FMCG will continue to do well. If the rally is to sustain from the current levels, it will need support from the beaten down IT segment, which looks good from the valuation perspective, Vijaykumar said.ce as we bring you LIVE updates of the day’s proceedings from Dalal Street.

The recessionary tendency was coming and that has been further exacerbated by this particular energy crisis. I would say there will be a recessionary thing perhaps for 12 months and it is going to be one of the longest drawn out things. I see a lot of pain ahead, it is not easy to see either Russia backing down or the West backing down. It is a grim scenario in the next 12 months. I do not see either of the two sides giving up easily in the next 12 months and that is bad for the world economy and it is bad for the Indian economy.

A decade ago, India ranked 11th among the largest economies and UK was 5th. If history has taught us something it’s that, UK has not been able to claim a position for long. Sooner or later, they have been overthrown and sent back to their mainland. India leaped past the UK in the final three months of 2021 to become the fifth-biggest economy. The Indian economy is expected to grow more than 7% this year. A sharp rebound in Indian stocks this quarter has seen their weighting rise to the second spot in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, trailing only China. IMF’s forecast show India overtaking the UK in dollar terms on an annual basis, positioning it right behind US, China, Japan and Germany. Rising and thriving each day.
