Meanwhile, the Indian market extended gains to second day on Monday as Nifty 50 and 3-share Sensex ended higher by 0.73% and 0.80% respectively. The benchmarks—Nifty50 and Sensex — were buoyed by fall in crude prices and buying by Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs). Besides, the rally in bluechip stocks also helped the market close on a strong note.
“Sustained FII buying and falling oil prices were the major drivers for the ongoing market rally. Heavyweights played a significant role in today’s rise, while PSU banks remained under pressure following weak results of the PSB major,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.
The week ahead is busy in terms of economic data with the domestic investors gearing up for the release of the inflation numbers along with the manufacturing production data to gauge the strength of the economy,” added Nair.
