Sensex and Nifty settled with gains for the second consecutive day on May 28 amid reports of reopening of more economies and a bigger than expected stimulus plan for the European Union.
Sensex closed 595 points, or 1.88 percent, higher at 32,200.59 while Nifty settled 175 points, or 1.88 percent, up at 9,490.10.
"Nifty has managed to surpass its immediate and crucial hurdle at 9,450 so it may be heading towards 9,650-9,750 levels. We feel banking and financials will continue to play a critical role. Amid all, market participants are likely to keep a watch on GDP data scheduled on May 29 while on the global front any news on US-China tussle will be on investors’ radar. Further, the on-going earning season would keep stock-specific volatility high," he said.
