Markets@Moneycontrol: Markets end week on a positive note

Persistent buying by domestic institutional investors came against the background of a recovery in the rupee

Equity benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty gained 0.30 and 0.40 per cent respectively on Friday as they finished in the green for the seventh successive session.

Investors will be looking ahead to a report about India's sovereign ratings from Standard & Poor's.

The barometer 30-scrip Sensitive Index (Sensex) of the BSE closed at 33,679.24 points - up 91.16 points or 0.27 per cent - from its Thursday's close. Meanwhile, the Nifty was trading higher by 14.45 points or 0.14% at 10,356.75 with 33 components gaining.

On a closing basis, the wider Nifty50 of the National Stock Exchange (NSE) rose by 40.95 points or 0.40 per cent to 10,389.70 points.

The Nifty PSU index closed 1.26 percent higher after falling as much as 1.13 percent earlier in the day.

Ongoing reforms and likely slower than expected Fed rate hike also caused positive momentum in the market.

However, some gains were capped as investors booked profits in metals stocks and foreign investors pulled out money from stocks.

The BSE market breadth was bullish - 1,510 advances and 1,225 declines. Consumer durables and IT stocks turned out to be big movers.

Sector-wise, IT rose by 1.02 per cent, energy 0.83 per cent, media 0.26 per cent and pharma 0.16 per cent.

Among sectoral indices, BSE auto index, BSE IT index and BSE industrials index are among the top gainers.
