Published on Nov 21, 2023 17:06

Domestic equity indices staged an impressive recovery today, bouncing back from a recent two-day decline. The market kicked off on a positive note, and sustained its upward trajectory throughout the trading session. The Nifty sealed a strong close above 19750, reflecting a positive sentiment. Shares of consumer durables and realty companies were in demand, driven by optimistic projections for festive demand.

The barometer index, the S&P BSE Sensex advanced 275.62 points or 0.42% to 65,930.77. The Nifty 50 index rose 89.40 points or 0.45% to 19,783.40.

Adani Enterprises (up 2.15%), Reliance Industries (up 1.24%) and HDFC Bank (up 0.83%) boosted the indices.

Several factors contributed to the market`s upbeat performance, including the anticipation surrounding the upcoming release of the Federal Reserve meeting minutes.
