Key Stocks

Shares of Dewan Housing Finance Corporation (DHFL) ended 4.3 per cent higher at Rs 235 apiece on NSE after the company reported a 52 per cent year-on-year (YoY) increase in its net profit at Rs 4.38 billion for September quarter of FY19.

South Korea's KOSPI retreated 0.4 per cent and Japan's Nikkei fell 0.35 per cent.

International Brent crude oil futures were at $63.60 per barrel, up $1.07 per barrel, or 1.7 per cent from their last close. US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were up $1.03 cents, or 1.9 per cent, at $54.46 a barrel.
