The Nifty regained the 9,950 mark

Mumbai: The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) benchmark index Sensex surged over 200 points on Friday, shaking off its earlier weakness, as oil and banking shares took spotlight. The broader NSE Nifty regained the 9,950 mark. Expectations built up that Friday’s meeting of the GST (Goods and Services Tax) Council may provide some relief to exporters and SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) in terms of faster refunds and compliance. The 30-share index rebounded by 222.33 points, or 0.7 per cent, to 31,814.36. The gauge had lost 79.68 points in the previous session after investors shaved off profit.

Reflecting the widespread recovery, all the sectoral indices led by consumer durables, metal and oil and gas were trading in the green, adding up to 2.6 per cent. The NSE Nifty also moved up 79.25 points, or 0.8 per cent, to quote at 9,967.95.

Traders said gains at most Asian markets tracking rallies on Wall Street following more buoyant US data and hopes of tax reforms bolstered trading sentiment here. 

Big gainers in the Sensex kitty included Tata Steel, GAIL India, JSPL, NTPC and SBI – rising between 2.2 per cent and 4 per cent. 

Elsewhere in Asia, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng rose 0.36 per cent and Japan’s Nikkei was up 0.25 per cent in early deals. 

Financial markets in China are closed for a week-long holiday. US Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.50 per cent to close at another record high on Thursday.
