    Sensex bounces back, Retail stocks join bandwagon too


    Positive sentiments with like global cues this Friday. Result: Benchmark index of BSE, Sensex, gains 743 points, a much needed flier to blur the bleak picture of ongoing financial turmoil. Nifty too added 188 points to its previous close to settle at 2,885.

    With a strong opening, the 30-share Sensex opened at 9,361.66 points, up 317 points against the previous close at 9,044.51 points, surged ahead to hit a high of 9,859.25 points, and finally shut shop at 9788. The situation was no different at the National Stock Exchange (NSE) where its broader 50-share S&P CNX Nifty index ended the day obtaining 6.53 per cent against its previous close at 2,697.05 points.

    The top performers at Sensex today featured Mahindra & Mahindra, HDFC, Jaiprakash Associates, ICICI Bank, Reliance Industries, Reliance Communications and Hindalco.

    Today’s trade also marked the end of the month. October was not a very good month for the stock markets. With the biggest FII outflow of Rs 142.72 billion, the markets also witnessed the biggest monthly fall ever. While Sensex lost 26 per cent, Nifty dipped 29 per cent, compared with last month’s statistics.
