Nifty tops 10,000 as global frictions ease

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

A somewhat restrained posturing by North Korea calmed the frayed nerves of investors as the Nifty yesterday closed beyond the 10,000-mark for the first time since August 7. The Sensex went up 195 points, powered by auto stocks after a less-than-expected GST cess hike and rising vehicle sales.

Investors are looking forward to August CPI inflation and July IIP data tomorrow for any turnaround after the disruption caused by GST. "Investors heaved a sigh of relief as the North Korean leader abandoned his weekend plans of launching another missile in favour of a party. Benchmark indices in India opened the day in the green and continued to trade with strength through the day to hit their highest intra-day levels in more than a month," said Karthikraj Lakshmanan, Senior Fund Manager – Equities, BNP Paribas Mutual Fund.

The 50-share Nifty index reclaimed the 10,000-mark to hit high of 10,028.65 before ending up 71.25 points, or 0.72%, at 10,006.05 -- its highest closing since August 7. Because of the buying pick-up, the 30-share BSE index opened higher and hit the day's high of 31,952.87, but settled at 31,882.16, up 194.64 points -- 0.61%. It had gained 25.55 points in the previous two sessions in a cautious trade.

Investor wealth as measured in terms of market capitalisation soared by Rs 99,164.33 crore to Rs 134.58 lakh crore.
