The Nifty closed at 18,314 level, up by 17 points from the previous trading session’s closing level. Similarly, the S&P BSE Sensex closed at 62,027.90 level, up by 123 points.
However, the Nifty Midcap 100 and Nifty Smallcap 100 witnessed profit booking at higher levels, resulting in a 0.40% and 0.75% decline, respectively. The Banking and Auto sectors had a strong trading day, while the Metal and Media sectors saw weakness.
Amongst the Nifty 50 stocks, Eicher Motors, Mahindra and Mahindra and IndusInd Bank emerged as top gainers, whereas BPCL, Hindalco and Power Grid were the top losers. Notably, the Nifty recovered from the technical and derivative support level of 18,200 and could potentially gain more strength if it trades above the day’s high level decisively.
