Reliance lifts Nifty by 121 points, Sensex nears 58,800; energy & realty stocks zoom
Reliance Industries was the top gainer in the Sensex pack, soaring over 6 per cent, followed by ITC, Infosys, Tech Mahindra, Titan, Bharti Airtel and PowerGrid.

Equity benchmark Sensex rebounded 454 points on Thursday, boosted by gains in index heavyweight Reliance Industries amid a positive trend in global markets. The 30-share index ended 454 points or 0.78% higher at 58,795. Similarly, the NSE Nifty surged 121 points or 0.70% to close at 17,536.

Reliance Industries was the top gainer in the Sensex pack, soaring over 6 per cent, followed by ITC, Infosys, Tech Mahindra, Titan, Bharti Airtel and PowerGrid. On the other hand, Maruti, ICICI Bank, IndusInd Bank, HUL and L&T were among the laggards.

“Domestic benchmark indices erased early losses to climb higher led by heavyweights and positive sentiments across western peers. However, concerns over rising inflation were visible in the minutes of the recent FOMC meeting signalling higher chances of an aggressive policy tightening. Pharma, IT and realty stocks attracted buyers while banking and auto stocks moved against the trend on the day of monthly expiry,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.
