Sensex Zooms 179 Points to 32776, Nifty at 10099

The NSE Nifty opened higher at 10,063.45 and moved in a range of 10,182.65 and 10,061.90, before ending at 10,166.70, up by 122.60 points, or 1.22 percent - its highest closing since November 30, 2017.

After a strong start at 32,968.02, the Sensex reclaimed the 33,000-mark to hit a high of 33,008.62 points but profit- booking at higher levels capped the gains.

On the NSE, 1,273 shares advanced, 473 declined, while 60 remained unchanged. Investors seemed to be bargain buying after the recent fall.

The Nifty is trading at 10,089.60 points in the morning.

On Wednesday, the Sensex had slumped over 200 points after the RBI monetary policy committee made a decision to hold the policy repo rate and raised the inflation forecast for the rest of the current fiscal year to 4.3-4.7 per cent.

In the broader markets, the S&P BSE mid-cap index closed higher by 1.38 per cent and the small-cap index by 1.29 per cent. However, RBI reiterating an economic growth of 6.7 per cent for FY18 uplifted the sentiment.

"A weak dollar overseas capped the rupee losses", a dealer said.

On the currency front, the rupee weakened by 4-5 paise at 64.57-56 against the United States dollar from its previous close at 64.52.

Major losers that dragged down the key indices include Adani Ports, NTPC, Tata Steel, Power Grid, Bajaj Auto, Wipro, Coal India, Hero MotoCorp, HDFC Bank, ONGC, L&T, Dr Reddy's and SBI.
