What further ignited the markets was the RBI's MPC outcome which taking into outlook growth aspect provided enough liquidity support, Bank Nifty on the liquidity cheer jumped over 2.8%.
This has been the best Sensex, Nifty gains in a year's time and index heavyweights such as HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, Axis Bank, Infosys all contributed to the gains.
Nonetheless, the buying interest is seen only in large cap stocks and there was underperformance seen for mid and small cap stocks. . "As Nifty approaches lifetime highs, we can expect a rotation of performance among sectors with sideways movement in broader indices and consolidation of strong market performance," said S Hariharan, Head - Sales Trading, Emkay Global Financial Services.
