Weekly Wrap Up
What a spectacular and historical week, where the Indian benchmark index, Nifty50, made a new lifetime high, over 20,000, while continuing its 7-day winning streak. This is one of the fastest rallies in the index, which shattered the previous all-time high.
- However, the index faced pressure because of profit booking at the top.
- However, this was soon overcome by further buying from domestic and foreign investors, which took the Nifty50 to another high well within the same week.
- Overall, the Nifty closed with a gain of 1.88% for the second week of September.
- While the Nifty 500 underperformed the Nifty with a gain of 1.02% in the same time period.
After having a stellar last week, Defence and Railway stocks tumbled this week as profit booking set in.
- Multiple rail stocks declined from 5- 15% in a day.
