Among Nifty stocks, PowerGrid, HUL, Titan, ICICI Bank and Bharti Airtel rose between 1.5% and 3%
Share markets ended higher on Tuesday, extending their winning streak to a ninth straight day. This was the longest gaining streak of the Sensex in over three years. Gains in metal, FMCG, oil & gas and select financial stocks helped offset losses in IT stocks. The Sensex ended 89 points higher at 34,395 while the Nifty settled at 10,548, up 20 points. After two years of normal monsoons, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Monday predicted yet another year of normal rains. The nine-day rally has taken Sensex over 4 per cent higher.
