“2024 is shaping up to be a positive year for Dalal Street, with expectations of Nifty reaching a fresh record high supported by favourable economic and geopolitical factors. Bank Nifty is also anticipated to join the upward trend, targeting its all-time high at 48,636,” said Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities Ltd.

Tapse also pointed out that the positive catalysts include FIIs being net buyers, and the optimism about renewed Fed rate cuts which eases fears of stubborn US inflation, and a growing likelihood of a 25-basis-points interest rate cut in March.
