The market jumped 2 percent in the holiday-shortened week ended April 1 helped by renewed buying interest post stimulus package announcement in the US. On the domestic front, encouraging auto sales data for March and record high GST collections added to the exuberance. On the other hand, the rising COVID cases in India kept investors worried. In the week ended April 2, BSE Sensex added 1,021.33 points, or 2 percent, to end at 50,029.83 and while the Nifty50 rose 360.05 points, or 2.4 percent, to close at 14,867.35 levels. On BSE Sensex, HCL Technologies, ITC, IndusInd Bank, Dr Reddy’s Laboratories and Bajaj Auto were top gainers. "As Q4 earning season is approaching, investors' focus will shift to earnings announcements and management commentary," said Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking.
