Stock market highlights: Buoyed by foreign inflows and healthy buying in heavyweights like Reliance Industries, L&T, ITC, Kotak Bank, SBI, Bharti Airtel, TCS, and HDFC Bank the benchmark S&P BSE Sensex surged 463 points on Friday to settle at 61,112.

The Nifty50, on the other hand, shut shop at 18,065, up 150 points. The 50-pack index surpassed the 18,000-mark for the first time since February 20.

In terms of percentage-wise gains, Nestle India, Wipro, L&T, SBI, ITC, and Tech M were the top winners, advancing up to 3 per cent. 

The exuberance, however, was deeper in the broader markets where the BSE MidCap rallied 1.3 per cent, and the BSE SmallCap index close to 1 per cent. This is against the benchmarks' 0.7 per cent gain. 

As per technical charts, the Nifty small-cap index has crossed the most crucial 200-day moving average (DMA), triggering more upside for all of its constituents. At the index level, the Nifty SmallCap is eyeing 10,000-mark. READ MORE
