27 June 2012

Indian benchmark indices, the Sensex and the Nifty, continued to trade higher by over 0.6 per cent in the morning session on Wednesday on firm Asian cues.

At 10.33 a.m., the 30-share BSE index Sensex was up 96.12 points or 0.57 per cent at 17,002.70 and the 50-share NSE index Nifty was up 33.05 points or 0.65 per cent at 5,153.85.

Volume toppers during the session were SBI, Tata Motors, L&T, ICICI Bank and Tata Steel.

Among 30-share Sensex, Tata Power, Hindalco, NTPC, ICICI Bank and HDFC Bank were the major gainers. Tata Motors, ONGC, HUL, M&M and Bharti Airtel were the major losers.

Among BSE sectoral indices, Power, Bankex, IT and Metal stocks led the uptrend with each up by over 0.8 per cent.

The Nifty and the Sensex opened marginally in the green following Asian indices. The Nifty opened at 5,149, up 28 points and the Sensex at 16,976, up 69 points.

“Asian Stocks swung between gains and losses after falling for four days ahead of the 19th summit of Europe’s debt crisis in three years. Declines were tempered by speculation that the US housing market is bottoming and that China may step up efforts to support its economy,” said a report from Angel Broking.
