Sensex ends 209.80 points up
MUMBAI: Benchmarks ended rangebound session near day’s highs as investors bought stocks at lower levels after a sharp decline in past few sessions. Positive cues from European markets also lifted sentiments.

Indices opened on a firm note and gained momentum towards end of trade after a rangebound session. The upmove was led by gains in technology, metals and pharmaceutical stocks while oil&gas space ended with marginal losses. According to analysts, market is expected to drift lower in coming session and pull-back rally must be used to book profits.

"Market is rangebound with a downward bias and is flirting with support levels. It will take cues from earnings season and other global news for further direction. However, it can extend its range towards lower levels. Nifty support is seen at 5400-5500 levels while resistance seen is at 6000 levels. Keep exiting long positions in case of a pull-back rally,” said Miki Jain, independent technical analyst.

Increased demand for outsourcing services boosted Tata Consultancy Services' third quarter financial figures.
