Stock Market Highlights: Sensex surges 760 pts as market scales one-month peaks — rupee at all-time low

1 Min(s) Read

Stock Market Highlights: Indian equity benchmarks BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty50 extended gains to a second straight session on Monday tracking gains across global markets, though caution persisted over steep hikes in COVID-era interest rates. Gains in financial, IT and auto shares pushed the headline indices to more than one-month closing highs. Broader markets strengthened, with the Nifty Midcap 100 and Nifty Smallcap 100 indices rising around 1.5 percent each for the day. Investors awaited more of corporate earnings from India Inc for cues, after HDFC Bank's quarterly net profit fell short of Street estimates.
