Headline indices Sensex and Nifty logged strong gains on July 28 as sentiment was underpinned by the expectation that the US Fed would maintain its dovish policy stance which will result in liquidity inflow in emerging markets like India.
Sensex closed with a strong gain of 558 points, or 1.47 percent, at 38,492.95 and Nifty settled at 11,300.55, up 169 points or 1.52 percent.
"Nifty has given a consolidation breakout of the last five trading sessions, by having a decisive close above immediate hurdle of 11,250. Now, it can extend its move towards 11,500 while key support exists at 11,150. The market is likely to be volatile this week, given the US Fed monetary policy on Wednesday and F&O monthly expiry on Thursday,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services.
