Let us take a quick glance at what happened on the Dalal Street today.

Benchmark indices climbed half-a-per cent each in a positive day for equities globally. Index heavyweights such as Reliance Industries, HDFC Bank and ITC settled lower, yet benchmark indices moved higher, thanks to buying in several non-performing counters.

Sensex ended the day gaining 254 points at 51,280. Nifty took out its important resistance level of 15,100 and closed at 15,175. Bajaj Finance, Sun Pharma, Tech Mahindra, Axis Bank and Bajaj Auto rose 1.8-2.3 per cent. Infosys, HCL Tech, IndusInd Bank and HUL rose over 1 per cent each. ONGC fell 2 per cent. Kotak Bank, ITC, HDFC Bank and Reliance Industries fell up to 1 per cent.
