May 29, 2022 / 10:28 AM IST
A volatile week that started with domestic indices struggling to build any momentum after the sharp rally on May 20 ended with both the Nifty 50 and BSE Sensex rising more than one percent each. The benchmark indices managed to rise for the second successive week aided by short covering rallies in banking and information technology stocks as the May derivative series expired on May 26. However, the recovery in the benchmark indices after starting the week with three successive days of losses did not trickle down to the broader market as the Nifty Midcap 100 index ended the week over one percent lower.
