Stock Market on Friday: Forty six stocks on the 50-scrip Nifty index finished the session higher
Stock markets bounced back on Friday boosted by buying across sectors except IT, amid strong gains in the rupee. The BSE benchmark index, Sensex, ended 732 points higher at 34,733 while the NSE Nifty settled at 10,472, up 237 points from the previous close. The 30-share Sensex gained a 2.2 per cent and the broader Nifty 2.3 per cent - the most since late May 2016, a day after they registered a decline of 2.2 per cent triggered by a global selloff. Analysts will keenly watch key macroeconomic data due later in the day, for more clarity on any move by the Reserve Bank of India on key interest rates going forward.
