You are listening to ETMarkets Evening Podcast.
This is Abhinav Kaul and here's a quick market wrap of the day, plus deep insights from top-notch market analysts.
First, it was a drop from the day's high, and then, a sudden spike.
That's how the market reacted to the RBI's policy review, as investors digested the fine print.
It was RBI’s ‘neutral’ stance that did the job, which means all options are open, depending on which way inflation moves.
That was a big positive for Dalal Street.
No doubt, the policy rate was hiked and for the first time in four-and-a-half-years by 25 bps to 6.25 per cent.
But investors gave a thumbs-up for retaining growth target at 7.4 per cent for 2018-19.
The rupee's new-found optimism and a positive trend in global markets pushed the mood barometer up, too.
The Sensex fell immediately after RBI's policy announcement, but quickly regained composure.
The gauge settled at 35,179, up 276 points. The gauge had lost 419 points in the previous three sessions.
The NSE Nifty finished higher by 92 points at 10,685.
Bharti Airtel, Tata Motors and Sun Pharma were the Sensex winners, rallying up to 4.55 per cent.
Buying was across the board, with all sectoral indices ending in the green on the BSE.
How are fundamentals looking? Let's see what Mayuresh Joshi of Angel Broking has to share.
