Mumbai, Nov 29, 2012, DHNS

 Key benchmark indices on Friday logged gains for third straight session of trade to settle at 19-month highs boosted by firm global stocks on one hand and on the other hand, deadlock in Lok Sabha ended as Speaker Meira Kumar allowed a debate on foreign direct investment (FDI) in multi-brand retail under Rule 184 that entails voting.

The market breadth was positive on Friday as eleven of the 13 sectoral indices on the BSE logged gains. Index heavyweight and cigarette maker ITC edged higher, while another index heavyweight RIL gained. Firm global cues and consistent buying among auto, banking, capital goods and oil & gas shares led the strong rally.

The 50-unit S&P CNX Nifty at NSE shot up 97.55 points or 1.70 per cent to 5,825, its highest closing level from April 27, 2011. The index hit a high of 5,833.50 and a low of 5,736.10 in intraday trade.

From broader markets, the BSE Mid-Cap index rose 1.26 per cent and the BSE Small-Cap index gained 0.45 per cent. Both these indices underperformed the Sensex.
