The equity benchmarks were volatile on Friday. After opening marginally in green, both BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty 50 slipped in to red while Sensex was down 200 points at around 62,360 level, Nifty was trading below 18,600.

“Nifty broke a two-day losing streak on Dec 8th, aided by optimism about China’s major shift in its strict zero-COVID policy and on the “as expected” outcome of state assembly elections.  Nifty was up 0.26% or 49 points at the close at 18609. Bank Nifty gained 1.16% to close at all-time high levels. Among sectors, banks and media indices rose the most. After a brief hiatus, Nifty managed to find buyers near the crucial 18500 levels, and that indicates that the trend remains positive.  Bank Nifty has surpassed the crucial resistance of 43400 to close at fresh all-time high levels and continues to outperform the Nifty,” said Devarsh Vakil, Deputy Head of Retail Research, HDFC securities.
