Small-Cap Stock Below Rs 20 stuns market with incredible 17 per cent surge and record-breaking volume!
In fact, total traded volume on Wednesday witnessed over four-fold jump compared to its 30-day average volume.
Indian markets opened Wednesday's session with a knee-jerk reaction to US Fed Chairperson Jerome Powell's comments, where he stated that the ultimate level of interest rates is likely to be higher than previously anticipated. Strictly speaking, Powell's testimony points to a 50-bps March rate hike to combat sticky inflation. However, buying emerged at lower levels and the indices not only managed to recoup morning losses but also ended the day in the green with gains of 0.25 per cent.
Regarding the broader market indices, there was buying interest as well, with the Nifty Midcap index outperforming the frontline indices as it jumped 0.51 per cent, while the Small-Cap index kept pace with the NSE benchmark Nifty50 index as it added 0.21 per cent.
So, get ready for some exciting news from the small-cap segment! Patel Engineering has taken everyone by surprise with its massive up-move. Despite being a small-cap stock with a market cap of Rs 1,382 crore, the stock skyrocketed nearly 17 per cent on Wednesday, backed by robust volume. In fact, total traded volume on Wednesday witnessed over four-fold jump compared to its 30-day average volume.
