MARKET WRAP: Sensex surges 718 pts, reclaims 34,000-mark; PSU banks rally

MARKET COMMENT Jayant Manglik, President, Religare Brokin Markets started the week on robust note and posted decent gains in the end. Among the benchmark indices, Nifty opened with an uptick and gradually inched higher, tracking encouraging earnings announcements. Banking and pharma led the rebound and others also joined in as session progressed. Besides, recovery in broader market indices further boosted the sentiment. Nifty finally settled around 10,250; up by over two percent.   We may see further rebound ahead but upside seems capped. We reiterate our view maintaining stock specific trading approach and focusing more on position management. Earnings and global cues would largely dictate the market trend in near future

The group has debt of about Rs 910 bn on the books — it’s hard to tell due to the number of subsidiaries. Read more
