Capital Market

Overseas, most Asian stocks edged higher reflecting upbeat US growth news. US stocks closed higher yesterday, 29 November 2016 with the Nasdaq touching a record, but the market failed to make much headway as oil futures slumped ahead of a key meeting of major crude producers.

In September, OPEC had outlined a deal to cut output by approximately 1 million barrels per day.

The Mid-Cap index was currently up 0.63%. The Small-Cap index was currently up 0.99%. Both these indices outperformed the Sensex.

Cement stocks gained. Ambuja Cements (up 1.97%), ACC (up 1.02%), (up 1.6%) and (up 0.99%) rose.

Grasim Industries was 2.88% at Rs 872.65. Grasim has exposure to the cement sector through its holding in UltraTech Cement.
