"Broad market indices outperformed. IT stocks came back in favour of value buying. Encouraging PMI manufacturing number for November (55.7) also helped sentiments. Global stocks climbed and the dollar slipped to a three-month low on fresh signs of a softening in China's Covid stance and Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell confirmed that the pace of interest rate hikes was set to slow," said Deepak Jasani, Head-Retail Research, HDFC Securities.
Nifty is now showing signs of running out of steam for the time being. 18,888 could be a tough resistance to cross while 18,678 could offer support in the near term, he added.
