Sensex and Nifty ended in the green for the second consecutive day on June 8 even as the benchmarks witnessed profit-booking.
Sensex ended the day 83 points higher at 34,370 while Nifty closed with gains of 25 points at 10,167.
"The recent rally, seen globally, is based on expectations of economic recovery, post easing of lockdown measures. In India, the COVID-19 cases continue to rise and the market seems to be ignoring this, for the time being, giving more priority to the news of the economy opening up. There was a lot of stock-specific news which resulted in gains today and this stock-specific action is likely to continue," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.
