Nifty continued its northward march for the third day in a row to close at 10,311 levels, the highest since March 11, despite weak global cues.
Sensex closed 180 points, or 0.52 percent, higher at 34,911.32 while Nifty finished at 10,311.20, up 67 points, or 0.65 percent.
"Markets have been showing resilience despite mixed local cues and it may extend further if the buoyancy on the global front continues. Meanwhile, investors would continue to keep a watch on the India-China standoff and COVID-19 situation. At the same time, earnings announcements and upcoming derivatives expiry would keep the volatility high. Traders should limit their leveraged positions and continue their focus on stock selection," said Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking.
