The stock market‘s volatility is still present. The Sensex increased by more than 113 points in early trading as the global stock markets showed a mixed trend. With this, the equity benchmark’s trading on Friday got off to a good start. Early trading saw the 30-share BSE index rise 113.2 points to 60,411.20. NSE Nifty increased 35.7 points at the same time to 17,992.20. However, the benchmark indices for Sensex and Nifty thereafter became erratic.
Mid-afternoon sessions in Asia saw Seoul and Shanghai markets trading down, while Tokyo and Hong Kong markets were trading higher. Let us say that on Thursday, Wall Street’s markets closed higher. The Nifty was up 12.25 points or 0.07 percent at 17,956.50 at the same time as the benchmark BSE index closed at 60,298 with a gain of 37.87 points or 0.06 percent.
