Market mirrors firm global stocks
11-May-18   16:29 Hrs IST

Market ended with strong gains, tracking positive leads from Asian markets and overnight gains on the Wall Street. The barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex, rose 289.52 points or 0.82% to settle at 35,535.79. The Nifty 50 index rose 89.95 points or 0.84% to settle at 10,806.50. Global risk appetite got a boost from soft US inflation, helping alleviate worries of faster rate hikes by the Federal Reserve. Domestic market sentiment was also driven by encouraging earnings releases. The Sensex and the Nifty, both, settled at their highest closing level in more than 14 weeks.

Overseas, European stocks were trading lower. Asian shares edged higher, tracking gains on Wall Street overnight, as softer-than-forecast US inflation data tempered expectations for faster Federal Reserve interest rate rises this year.

Investors also welcomed continued moves between the United States and North Korea to reduce tensions in the region. US President Donald Trump will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong un in Singapore next month amid high hopes of doing something very meaningful to curtail Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions.

US stocks jumped on Thursday, with equities advancing in a broad rally that gave the Dow Jones Industrial Average its longest winning streak since February. Gains were supported by the latest economic data, which suggested the economy was healthy, but not growing so quickly that it was at risk of overheating.

In US, the consumer-price index rose 0.2% in April, while core CPI, which strips out food and energy, rose 0.1%. In another report on Thursday, the number of people who applied for first-time US unemployment benefits in early May stood at 211,000 for the second straight week, near a 49-year low.

Back home, the market opened higher and trimmed gains in morning trade. Indices firmed up once again in mid-morning trade. After hovering in a narrow range, indices hit fresh intraday high in late trade.

The Sensex rose 289.52 points or 0.82% to settle at 35,535.79, its highest closing level since 1 February 2018. The index rose 349.88 points, or 0.99% at the day's high of 35,596.15. The index rose 15.79 points, or 0.04% at the day's low of 35,262.06.

The Nifty 50 index rose 89.95 points or 0.84% to settle at 10,806.50, its highest closing level since 1 February 2018. The index rose 95.50 points, or 0.89% at the day's high of 10,812.05. The index rose 7.90 points, or 0.07% at the day's low of 10,724.45.
