Nifty displayed a robust performance for the day, bouncing back after a gap-down opening. However, during the afternoon session, some investors booked profits, causing a slight decline. Despite this, Nifty concluded the day on a positive note, closing 84 points higher than the previous trading session at a level of 18,398.
S&P BSE Sensex also experienced a similar trend, relinquishing some gains from its intraday high but ultimately managing to close 297 points higher at a level of 62,345. Nifty Midcap 100 and Nifty Smallcap 100 exhibited stronger performance, finishing with gains of 0.75% and 0.5% respectively. The Realty and Media sectors demonstrated strength throughout the day, while Pharma and Energy sector stocks remained relatively stable.
Among the Nifty 50 stocks, Hero Moto Corp, Tata Motors and ITC emerged as the top gainers, while BPCL, Cipla and Grasim encountered losses. Today, Nifty traded with upward momentum, filling the opening gap but witnessed profit booking by the closing time. It concluded just below the 18,400 level and may gain further strength if it manages to decisively trade above it.
