Equity Indices ended on higher note today. On August 18, Sensex closed 37.87 points higher at 60,298.00. Nifty ended 12.25 points higher at 17,956.50.
In the previous season, on August 17, Sensex closed 417.92 points higher at 60,260.13. Nifty ended 119.00 points higher at 17,944.25.
Pertinent to mention here, benchmark index Sensex touched pshychologically crucial 60,000 mark on Wednesday after more than four months. A slight moderation in inflation — both in the US and India — coupled with fresh inflow of foreign funds into Indian capital markets infused positive investor sentiments.
