CLOSING COMMENTS :: Vinod Nair, Head Of Research at Geojit Financial Services

Domestic market clawed its way out to a gap up opening following strong global sentiments, as US debt default worries calmed along with easing bond yields and crude oil prices. The domestic market was pushed by strong buying in auto, realty & IT sectors which bolstered the market to sustain the trend in favour of the bulls. Despite the global semiconductor shortage, auto stocks sparked a rally in hopes of demand revival during the festive season while the expectation of better Q2 numbers for IT and strong pre-sale numbers helped the realty sector.
