Announcement of a stimulus package of Rs 20 lakh crore to support the Coronavirus-hit Indian economy by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday evening had a positive impact on the Indian stock markets today. Both the indices -S&P BSE Sensex and NIFTY 50- broke the two-day long losing streak. While Nifty-50 settled at 9,383.55 points, up by 187.00 points or 2.03%, the 30-share Sensex closed up by 637.49 points or 2.03% at 32,008.61 points.
Nearly 1633 shares registered gains in today’s trading session, while 723 shares posted losses and 169 shares remain stable. The broader market rally came on the back of BSE Midcap and BSE Smallcap indices that posted gains of 1.49 percent and 1.97 percent, respectively.
BSE Capital Goods index was the biggest sectoral gainer registering a gain of 5.08 percent in today’s trading session. State-run Bharat Heavy Electricals rose 23.67 percent, while Bharat Electronics rose 8.42 percent to close at Rs 65.70. Among sectors other than Pharma and FMCG, other indices straightened out in the green. Bank Nifty led the gain by over 4 percent in addition to IT, auto, metal, chemicals, mining, infra, and energy.
RIL share price, which has long been in notice primarily for its rights issue and its raised market capital of reaching 10 lakh crore, did not do much to cheer the market sentiments today and closed at Rs. 1,492.50, up by Rs. 13.25 or 0.90%.
