Sensex, Nifty rise on IT, Tech stocks rally; Infosys, Sun Pharma, Dish TV stocks gain

On account of heavy buying in IT and Tech stocks, the stock market of India witnessed a steady rise at Indian indices in the intraday trade on Monday. The BSE Sensex rose 160 points and closed at 38,896 while Nifty 50 index added 35 points and ended at 11,587 levels. But, due to the DHFL crisis, Bank Nifty index witnessed heavy selloff in the intraday trade and lost 155 points after closing at 30,445 levels. Sun Pharma, Dish TV India, Infosys and Piramal Enterprises were the top gaining stocks today while DHFL, CG Power and Industries, Allahabad Bank, Reliance Capital and Magma Fincorp stocks were the top losing shares today.

Speaking on the current market outlook Simi Bhaumik,  a SEBI registered technical equity analyst told Zee Business Online, “The market has strong support at 11,500 and I don’t see it breaking in the near future. In fact, the market is expected to trade in near 100-110 points range as it has strong resistance at 11,610-630 levels. Till the market breaks this resistance, I would recommend stock market investors to maintain buy on dips strategy.”
