Sensex records biggest gain in six weeks

24 April, 2017

Indian shares closed 1 percent higher on Monday, posting their biggest daily percentage gains in nearly six weeks following a slew of good quarterly results including from HDFC Bank Ltd and cement makers.

Sentiment was also lifted after the market’s favoured candidate, Emmanuel Macron, won the first round of the French presidential election.

The broader NSE Nifty closed up 1.08 percent at 9,217.95, while the benchmark BSE Sensex ended 0.99 percent higher at 29,655.84. HDFC Bank closed 2.44 percent higher.

Both indexes posted their biggest daily percentage gains since March 14.
