Sensex climbs 320 pts as rupee strengthens, Nifty eyes 11,500-mark
14/09/2018 14:35
The domestic indices are trading nearly 1 per cent higher led by a rise in the banking stocks, which rose due to a firm rupee and positive cues from the global markets.

The rupee is trading marginally off its high points and hovering around 71.79 per US dollar mark. On a year to date basis, the currency has fallen over 12 percent.

The rupee and 10-year government bond prices rose after retail inflation for August fell below the RBI’s medium-term target of 4% for the first time in 10 months.

Stocks in Asian markets extended a rally after their recent battering drove valuations to a two-year low, following a technology-supported advance in US stocks.

The dollar held declines after US inflation unexpectedly cooled in August.

European markets are higher today with shares in France leading the region. The CAC 40 is up 0.26% while Germany's DAX is up 0.23% and London's FTSE 100 is up 0.03%.
