Let’s look at the final tally on D-Street – the S&P BSE Sensex rose 109 points to 41,130 while the Nifty50 closed with gains of 50 points to end at 12,151.15.
Markets remained volatile throughout the trade but bulls managed to push the index back in green towards the close of the session with handsome gains. Benchmark indices recorded their fresh closing highs as well for the second consecutive day in a row.
Positive commentary from the finance minister on Wednesday, F&O expiry, buying by foreign investors and fall in yields which signals a continuation of Reserve Bank of India’s accommodative stance in its next policy meeting in December are some of the factors which aided the sentiment.
Investors would watch out for big macro triggers such as infrastructure output data for October, and GDP data for the September quarter on Friday.
"Market stayed positive despite expiry led volatility & the announcement of GDP data tomorrow as investors got a sense that increasing global liquidity will provide support in every consolidation,” Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services told Moneycontrol.
“Factors like benign oil prices and fall in yields signals that RBI will continue to maintain its accommodative stance until the economy enters into a revival path. Additionally, Govt’s efforts to maintain the fiscal prudence and stimulus measures may help to extend the breadth of the rally,” he said.
