Indian Stock Indices Hit Record Highs Surpassing 74,000 Mark

Indian stock indices experienced a historic surge, with the Sensex breaching 74,000 points and the Nifty reaching 22,474.05 points. This remarkable rally was primarily driven by robust performances in banking stocks, coupled with a stable macro-economic outlook. The surge gained momentum with strong buying from foreign portfolio investors and positive sentiment ahead of US Fed Chair Powell’s upcoming speech.

Market Dynamics: Banking Sector and Foreign Investments Propel Growth

Banking stocks played a pivotal role in the market’s upward trajectory, notably the Nifty Bank and Nifty Private Bank indexes, which witnessed significant gains ranging from 0.8% to 0.9%. The latter part of the day saw a reversal of initial losses, attributed to substantial investments by foreign portfolio investors. In March alone, these investors infused Rs 6,139 crore into Indian markets, contributing substantially to the indices’ record highs.

RBI’s Regulatory Actions Create Market Volatility

Amid the market euphoria, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) introduced regulatory measures affecting JM Financial Products and IIFL Finance Ltd. JM Financial Products was instructed to cease all financing against shares and debentures, including loans for IPOs and debenture subscriptions, due to serious governance and regulatory deficiencies. Similarly, IIFL Finance faced restrictions on sanctioning or disbursing gold loans. These directives resulted in a significant downturn for both companies, with JM Financial closing over 10% lower and IIFL experiencing a 20% lower circuit for the second consecutive day.
