Sensex up 269 points intraday, Nifty above 15,800 as metals shine

Our Bureau. Mumbai | Updated on July 29, 2021

Hindalco, Tata Steel, JSW Steel, Bajaj Finserv and Tata Motors were the top gainers

Benchmark indices were trading higher during the afternoon on Thursday, led by metals and IT.

After three consecutive days of losses, the market recovered on Thursday ahead of the monthly F&O expiry amid positive global cues. Asian stocks, after continuous sell-off amid recent tension in Chinese tech stocks, managed to bounce back as the U.S. Federal Reserve maintained the status quo on policy rates and signalled that it was in no rush to taper stimulus, impacting investor sentiments in the domestic market. 

At 1 pm, the BSE Sensex was ruling at 52,713.43, up 269.72 points or 0.51 per cent. It hit an intraday high of 52,740.66 and a low of 52,561.39. The Nifty 50 was trading at 15,802.00, up 92.60 points or 0.59 per cent. It hit an intraday high of 15,804.15 and a low of 15,737.80.

Hindalco, Tata Steel, JSW Steel, Bajaj Finserv and Tata Motors were the top gainers on the Nifty 50, while Maruti, PowerGrid, Nestle India, Coal India and Eicher Motors were the top laggards.
