Benchmark Nifty closed above the 9,300-mark for the first time in its history today, while the Sensex soared 287 points to a three-week high on widespread buying, spurred by strong results and upbeat global cues. The 50-share Nifty rallied 88.65 points, or 0.96 per cent, to reach its new lifetime closing high of 9,306.60, surpassing the previous record close of 9,265.15 on April 5.

This is the highest closing for Sensex since April 5, when it had ended on 29,974.24. Brokers said a string of strong quarterly earnings, including from index heavyweight RIL, and appreciating rupee accelerated buying activity. The rupee ended at 64.26 against the dollar, up 18 paise. Asian shares ended higher following a relief rally in global equities after centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron won the first round of the French presidential election. "Earnings from both private as well as public sector has shown encouraging signs, lifting banking stocks, while Nifty’s surge to 9,300 gave added vigour to market. "Government’s push in the infra and affordable housing space has also kept housing, cement and realty stocks buzzing,” said Anand James, Chief Market Strategist, Geojit Financial Services. Meanwhile, domestic funds bought shares worth a net Rs 984.17 crore yesterday, while foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) sold stocks worth a net Rs 279.55 crore, as per provisional data from the stock exchanges.

Leading businessman Anil Ambani today said more than creating wealth for himself, his father late Dhirubhai Ambani derived greater happiness from creating wealth for masses. "If you ever asked what part of being an entrepreneur he (late Ambani) enjoyed the most, he would say, 'I enjoy creating wealth. But what I enjoy even more is in creating wealth for the people of the country,'" the Anil Ambani Group chairman said while addressing an industry event here. It can be noted that the late Ambani, who had a humble beginning as a primary school teacher's son in Gujarat, is regarded as the father of capital markets and the equity cult, who made millions of investors millionaires with the IPO of Reliance Textile Industries in 1977.

Gripped by fear psychosis due to geo-political aftershocks, key stock market indices were on a sticky wicket for the fifth day today as both Sensex and Nifty fell over 1 per cent to hit their one-month lows.

Weakness in the rupee against the American currency and lacklustre global shares dragged down the indices, too. The BSE 30-share Sensex remained in the negative zone and settled down 317.74 points, or 1.01 per cent, at 31,213.59, its weakest closing since July 4. The index had tumbled 794.08 points in the last four sessions. The NSE Nifty after cracking the 9,700-mark to hit a low of 9,685.55, finally settled lower 109.45 points, or 1.11 per cent…
