India Market Wrap 16 July 2023 🌯
This week's market action in less than 5 mins!
Hi 👋! It's Sunday, and thank you for signing up. The about page for TheWrap is here.
This is your summary of everything important that took place in the Indian markets this week.
This week’s market action in one line
Stocks give up gains, IT sector returns, Defense stocks make merry, Large Cap Consumer stocks climb upwards, Autos and Banks continue their reign
The market started on a strong note but by the end of Friday, majority of stocks pared much of their weekly gains.
The best performing index was the IT sector, followed by metals. Metals and mining-related stocks have been showcasing strength from past two weeks, something we covered in the past two issues of The Wrap - available here and here.
On an individual stock basis, Premier Explosives (65.55%), Ritco Logistics (58.35%), Zen Technologies (37.39%), Lloyds Steel Industries (34.16%), and Refex Industries (32.83%) emerged as clear winners.
Each of them had their own reasons, there is no common theme between all of them. Premier Explosives, for instance, secured a significant order at the beginning of the week - more on that in the corporate announcements section below.
Market breadth wise we are consolidating and I do not expect any large correlated linear moves of all stocks in sector (like we witnessed in April, May and June) but rather individual stocks performing due to their own respective triggers.
Here is a link to all 554 strong stocks based on price and volume action. This list is derived after old school way of manually screening 2300+ charts.
It was a quite week when it came to insider trade activity. There were many ESOP related trades but nothing noteworthy or out of the ordinary.
