Late buying bolster markets; Sensex ends 286 points higher

Banking, Auto sector rose 1 per cent

Closing Bell


Domestic equity benchmark BSE Sensex jumped over 280 points and the Nifty rose 93 points in the last two-hour trading session on Friday, driven by the gains in IT, banking. energy, FMCG and auto stocks, amid positive domestic and global cues.

After opening higher of 37,175.86, the 30-share index traded in a narrow band for most part of the day. Later, some sudden spurt in buying has bolstered the equities. The Sensex ended higher by 280.71 points, or 0.76%, at 37,384.99, while the broader Nifty rose 93.10 points, or 0.85 per cent, to 11,075.90.

Top gainers today included BPCL, IOC, Titan, GAIL, Vedanta, ONGC, Hindalco, ICICI Bank, Infosys, SBI, Axis Bank, and HeroMotoCorp, rising between 1 per cent and 6 per cent.

On the other hand, IndiaBulls, Sun Pharma, Dr Reddy's Bharti Airtel, HDFC Bank and ITC  fell between 0.65-2.50 per cent.

Besides positive cues from global markets, domestic benchmarks rose amid hopes of another rate cut by the Reserve Bank of India.

Driven by costlier food items, retail inflation inched up to 10-month high of 3.21 per cent in August but remained within the RBI’s comfort level and may prompt the central bank for one more round of rate cut as another set of government data revealed industrial production growth slowed to 4.3 per cent in July.

Derivatives View (September 13) on Nifty and Bank Nifty futures


Buy Nifty in range of 10953-10972; Buy Bank Nifty in range of 28000-28050

Nifty Futures

The Nifty snapped its five-day winning streak and ended with a loss of around 50 points. In the last half an hour, intense selling was seen in industry heavyweights, which led the index to drift lower to 11000.

If the Nifty is unable to hold 10900, which also commands significant OI, then more downside can be seen in coming days. Nifty futures ended at a premium of 14 point with a fall in IVs by 3.15%. The highest Put base is at 10800 strike with almost 28 lakh shares while the highest Call base is at the 11000 strike with 22 lakh shares.

Broker's call: ICICI Securities

Bank Nifty Futures

Buy Bank Nifty in range of 28000-28050

The Bank Nifty faced difficulty above 28000 as Call writing continued in OTM strikes. Apart from HDFC Bank, most private and PSU banks turned negative. Looking at the weekly options data, OI additions were seen in ATM and OTM Call strikes. we feel a move above 28000 once again may bring round of short covering. This is likely to keep the index move in check.
