Sensex breaches 30k-mark, Nifty at new high of 9264

Mumbai, Apr 6 The NSE 50-share Nifty pared its intra-day losses to end nearly steady after the Reserve Bank kept its key policy rate unchanged in line with market expectations.

On similar lines, the National Stock Exchange index Nifty continued its record-setting spree by gaining another 27.10 points, or 0.29 per cent, to trade at new high of 9,264.95. It had touched a high of 9,267.95 and a low of 9,218.85 intra-day.

BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty, both of which were trading down since morning on concerns that the RBI will keep a tight monetary policy to keep inflation in check, rebounded immediately after the policy statement was released, breathing a sigh of relief as the central bank refrained from pulling any surprises to spook the markets.

The Reserve Bank also narrowed policy rate corridor, due to liquidity flush, by increasing marginal standing facility rate and bank rate to 6.50 per cent. The central bank also raised the growth forecast for the current fiscal to 7.4% from 6.7% in 2016-17.

Among BSE sectoral indices, metal index fell the most by 1.21 per cent, followed by capital goods 0.85 per cent, consumer durables 0.79 per cent and healthcare 0.68 per cent.
