Indian shares rose marginally higher after fluctuating between early gains and mid-afternoon losses with an equity benchmark snapping a three-day losing streak.
The S&P BSE Sensex rose 0.1 percent to 33,250 while the NSE Nifty 50 rose less than 0.1 percent to 10,308. The market breadth was skewed in favour of the buyers at close by at least 2:1 on the NSE.
Fourteen of the 19 sector gauges compiled by the BSE Ltd. rose led by the S&P BSE Consumer Durables Index’s 3.23 percent jump, the most since Nov. of last year. The S&P BSE Healthcare index was the worst performer, down 0.27 percent.
Gold Demand In India Seen Revisiting 7-Year Low
Gold consumption this year in India, the world’s second-biggest user, is on track to revisit the seven-year low recorded in 2016 after tax and regulatory changes damped demand, according to the World Gold Council.
Global jewelry demand fell 3 percent in the third quarter mainly because of India’s introduction of a uniform goods and services tax in July and after an anti money-laundering act was briefly imposed on the sector in August.
Rupee Extends Gains
The rupee advanced by 11 paise to 64.85 against the dollar at the interbank forex market today on increased selling of the U.S. currency by exporters and banks.
A weak dollar against other currencies overseas supported the rupee gains. Stocks markets opening with gains also bolstered the domestic currency, a dealer said.
Yesterday, the rupee had staged a mild recovery after a two-session fall and ended higher by 7 paise at 64.96 against the US currency.
