Taking Stock | Bull holds tight grip on D-St; Sensex gains 533 points, Nifty above 18,200

The market rally continued on the fourth straight session on January 12, with Nifty closing above 18,200 and Sensex above 61,000 level, led by the auto, realty, metal and power stocks.

Amid supportive global cues and falling omicron cases helped the Indian benchmark indices to make a gap-up opening and remained higher throughout the session. At close, the Sensex was up 533.15 points or 0.88% at 61,150.04, and the Nifty was up 156.50 points or 0.87% at 18,212.30.

"Led by realty, auto, energy and banking stocks, benchmark indices continued its winning streak for the 4th consecutive day despite fast spread of covid cases," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.

"Globally, sentiments were positive ahead of the release of US inflation data as the Fed Chair’s testimony eased inflationary worries."
