Stocks in Focus: GIFT Nifty traded down by 36.50 points or 0.17% at 21,774.50 indicating a negative opening for domestic indices NSE Nifty 50 and BSE Sensex on Friday. Previously, on Thursday, the NSE Nifty 50 ended down by 212.55 points or 0.97% to settle at 21,717.95, while the BSE Sensex plunged by 723.57 points or 1% to 71,428.43.

“Markets tumbled after RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das rocked the boat with a hawkish tone, raising bets that the monetary policy will remain restrictive for longer. Lack of clarity on the inflation outlook also weighed on the sentiment. Selling intensified after the RBI’s monetary policy announcement in the first half with heavy selling in private banking scrips leading the slump,” said  Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities Ltd 

Tapse also said, Banking industry has been facing liquidity issues in recent times and with the central bank’s decision showing no signs of interest rate cut in the near term, investors slashed their positions in financial stocks. However, sharp gains in IT and oil & gas stocks helped markets pare losses, although underlying sentiment remains sluggish to negative. From a technical perspective, Nifty’s aggressive upside targets are still seen at 22127 mark, while make-or-break support is at 21557.
