The Indian benchmark indices extended their upward momentum as the BSE Sensex approached the 70,000 level. The utility and power sectors spearheaded the sectoral gains, propelled by a strong rebound in Adani Group stocks. The momentum was further bolstered by the strong performance of the oil and gas, FMCG and capital goods sectors. Conversely, telecommunications, real estate, and banking stocks witnessed significant declines. With 1,965 shares rising on the BSE and 1,612 shares declining, the advance-decline ratio remained in favour of advances.
