Among the few losers today were Sun Pharma, Hindalco and Cairn India. Tech Mahindra and Mahindra Satyam moved up smartly today following reports that the boards of both the companies had approved their merger.
Markets are continuing to exhibit a firm trend largely on account of the constant flow from foreign institutional investors. With liquidity continuing to remain easy the firm trend in equities is likely to continue.
