Sensex, Nifty Close At Highest Levels

MARKET

Continuing their rising streak for the second straight day, domestic stock markets rose to six-week closing highs on Friday. Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) benchmark index Sensex ended at 35,457.16, up 196.62 points or 0.56 per cent from the previous close, and the Nifty50 index of the National Stock Exchange (NSE) rose 65.50 points or 0.62 per cent to settle at 10,682.20. That marked the highest closing levels for both indices since October 3. The indices were boosted by a surge in financial and energy stocks amid continued foreign fund inflows and a strengthening rupee.
