Indian equity benchmarks ended at a one week high on July 1, led by banking and financials.
Nifty surged 128 points, or 1.24 percent, to end at 10,430 and the Sensex ended 499 points, or 1.43 percent, higher at 35,414.
"Global sentiments were somewhat positive as improving economic data across countries was partially offset by worries about surging coronavirus cases. In domestic cues, better Goods & Service Tax collections in June and strong PMI data boosted market sentiment," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services.
"It is the buoyancy of the global markets which aided the surge amid rising cases in India. Though we are seeing a demand revival in select areas, it is still way lower compared to pre-COVID levels. Amid the mixed signals, we feel the upside could remain capped and traders should continue with their positive yet cautious stance. We reiterate that the performance of the banking pack would play a critical role in the next directional move as other sectors, by and large, have done their part," Ajit Mishra, VP - Research,
Religare Broking, said.
