12/02/2018 16:44
The Indian benchmark indices ended higher on Monday, tracking firm cues from Asian peers, on buying by domestic funds ahead of inflation data to be released after market hours today. The market sentiment was also lifted by gain in index heavyweight such as ONGC, Tata Steel, Sun Pharma, Bharti Airtel, Adani Ports, L&T, HeromotoCorp and Axis Bank. On the sectoral front, power and realty stocks emerged as top gainers on BSE, rising as much as 1.87 per cent and 1.73 per cent, respectively. The Market breadth, indicating the overall strength of the market, was strong. On BSE out of total shares traded 3162, shares advanced were 2145, while 857 shares declined, and 160 were unchanged. Shares of State Bank of India fell over 2 per cent after the country’s largest bank posted a quarterly loss, for the first time in nearly 19 years, of 1,886.57 crore in the December quarter of 2017-18, due to increase in provisioning for bad loans.

The 30-share benchmark index closed at 34300.47, up by 294.71 points or by 0.87 per cent, and the NSE Nifty ended at 10539.75, up by 84.8 points or by 0.81 per cent.
