Global Buoyancy, Bharti, RIL, Zydus Lead Nifty To 10,600 Levels, Sensex Up 178 Pts
PTI - 03 July 2020

Mumbai, July 3: Rising for the third straight session, equity benchmark Sensex jumped 178 points on Friday, tracking gains in Reliance Industries, Bharti Airtel and TCS amid buoyancy in global markets.

Regulatory approval to Cadila Healthcare's Zydus for human trials of a potential COVID-19 vaccine too boosted domestic investor sentiment, traders said.

After touching a high of 36,110.21, the 30-share BSE index settled 177.72 points, or 0.50 per cent, higher at 36,021.42.

The NSE Nifty rose 55.65 points, or 0.53 per cent, to end at 10,607.35.

Bharti Airtel was the top gainer in the Sensex pack, rallying around 4 per cent, followed by Bajaj Auto, TCS, Titan, HCL Tech and Reliance Industries.

Shares of Reliance Industries rose over 1 per cent after announcement that Intel Capital will buy 0.39 per cent stake in Jio Platforms.

On the other hand, IndusInd Bank, Tata Steel and HDFC Bank were among the laggards.

According to traders, domestic indices took cues from Asian peers that followed overnight gains on Wall Street after positive jobs data release in the US.

Despite hopes of a COVID-19 vaccine, gains were capped as rising coronavirus cases across the world weighed on the market mood, they added.

The number of cases around the world linked to the disease has crossed 1.08 crore and the death toll has topped 5.20 lakh.

In India, the number of infection has touched 6.25 lakh, with 18,213 fatalities.

Bourses in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Seoul ended on a positive note, while those in Europe opened in the red.

Meanwhile, international oil benchmark Brent crude futures fell 1.69 per cent to $42.41 per barrel.

On the currency front, the rupee appreciated 38 paise to settle at 74.66 against the US dollar.
