Equity benchmark indices hit their fresh all-time highs on Thursday after lower inflation data raised hopes of an interest rate cut by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). In addition, heavy buying in capital goods, consumer durable, and industrial stocks also boosted to market sentiment.

The BSE Sensex jumped 204.33 points or 0.27 per cent to settle at a fresh record high of 76,810.90. The NSE Nifty rallied 75.95 points or 0.33 per cent to settle at a new closing high of 23,398.90. The broader market too gained 0.8 per cent with buying interest seen in capital goods, consumer durable, defense, shipbuilding, and sugar stocks. India Vix further fell to 6-week low to below 14 level indicating a stable political environment in the NDA collation.

“Lower inflation data in both India and the US helped the market touch yet another new high. Further, though US Fed kept the interest rates unchanged and the tone was hawkish, but he did hint at one rate cut towards the end of the year,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research at Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd.

“Market is hopefully waiting for favourable union budget which likely to be announce next month. Sentiments got a boost post domestic inflation fell to 1-year low and domestic April IIP data came in better than expected. Market has been consolidating over last few days with positive bias and is slowly and gradually inching up. The uptrend is likely to continue supported by robust domestic macros, healthy monsoon prediction and strong earnings expectation,” he added.
