The Indian equity markets ended on a positive note for the fifth straight day amid mixed global cues.
The Sensex closed 187 points, or 0.51 percent, up at 36,674.52, and the Nifty ended 36 points, or 0.33 percent, up at 10,799.65.
"The market is factoring in positive macroeconomic data, strong rural economy and optimism over potential COVID-19 vaccine emerging soon. Further, hopes have now shifted to potential FY22E earnings recovery," said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services.
"Nifty is trading at 21 times one-year forward P/E (premium to its long period average of 19 times) and is not looking as attractive as it did in March. Despite the near-term momentum, we would be more cautious or defensive in our approach going forward," Khemka added.
