The Indian market opens on an optimistic note in today’s trade. BSE Sensex was marching towards 19000 mark. Marginal buying was seen in pharma, oil&gas and power stocks. Positive manufacturing data and better-than-expected auto sales data for September may act as trigger for the market to extend this rally.
Top gainers in the Nifty were Ambuja Cements, HCL Tech, Cipla, Wipro and HDFC. Jindal Steel, Tata Motors, Hero Motocorp, ITC and Bank of Baroda were top losers.
Rupee @ fresh 5-month high
The Indian rupee rose for a fourth consecutive session on Wednesday to hit a new five-month high on hopes of an improving economy and fiscal and economic reforms from the government. This may continue to spur inflows from foreign funds while exporters sold dollars.
ICICIdirect expects the US dollar to attract selling pressure on rallies against the INR and recommends to utilise the highs in the USDINR October contract to sell.

On the other hand, one can also create short positions if it resists at around 5810 levels. The Bank Nifty is likely to trade in the range of 10450-11750.
