No new fresh record highs for Nifty but the index did manage to close above 12,100 for the first time in the history. The S&P BSE Sensex too ended at fresh closing high above 41,000 levels.
Let’s look at the final tally on D-Street – the S&P BSE Sensex rose 199 points to 41,020 while the Nifty50 closed 63 points higher at 12,100 on Wednesday.
Sectorally, the action was seen in auto, oil & gas, public sector, and metal stocks while profit-taking was seen in capital goods, realty, and telecom space.
The broader market remains mixed as the S&P BSE Midcap rose 0.82 percent while the S&P BSE Smallcap underperformed, rising 0.19 percent.
Positive global cues and consistent buying by foreign investors kept the momentum going on Indian markets. Auto stocks gained between 1-4 percent on November 27 after media reports suggested that the government could approve scrappage policy in today's meeting.
Experts are of the view that the market is likely to remain volatile ahead of November expiry on Thursday but it is still "buy on dips" market as long as Nifty trades above 12,000.
“We reiterate our bullish view on the index and suggest continuing with “buy on dips” approach. Almost all the sectors, barring IT, are contributing to the move and we feel under-owned sectors viz. PSU banks and pharma can positively surprise the participants,” Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking Ltd said.
“The broader indices too are showing sign of recovery but we’re seeing selective buying thus traders should maintain positive yet cautious approach while choosing stocks from the midcap and smallcap pack,” he said.
