Market Starts Positive:Sensex Up to 100 point Nifty Closer to 8900

The S&P BSE Sensex rallied as much as 120 points in trade on Thursday, led by gains in Infosys, Axis BankBSE -0.05 %, TCS and Tata Motors BSE 0.02 %.

The S&P 500 was down 1.5%, with US crude oil falling 2.6% to settle at $52.14 a barrel.

The US dollar was nursing losses in Asia on Thursday while bonds held hefty gains as investors scaled back expectations on how fast, and how far, the Federal Reserve might raise interest rates in coming months and years.

the 50-share Nifty index also managed to head higher towards its next crucial psychological level of 8900, supported by gains in consumer durable, oil & gas, capital goods and auto stocks.


the 30-share index was at 29422.01, up 101.75 points or 0.35per cent. It touched a high of 29469.86 and a low of 29386.88 in trade today.

Nifty is trading near its immediate resistance levels of 8900 which may induce some pressure, say experts. The crucial supports will now be seen at 8750 levels.
