Despite a weak opening, markets saw buying interest and rose for rest of the day. The rise was supported by continued buying in IT stocks and renewed interest in pharma stocks amidst rising virus cases. Toward the end of last week, the intensity of FII selling pressure reduced. This is favourable for the markets, in general.
Further, despite rising cases major European indices are trading in green today. This also acts as a sentiment booster. Among the Nifty sectoral indices Pharma (+1.6%) and Financial services (+0.9%) were the top gainers. Whereas, Media (-1.0%) and FMCG (-0.1%) were the top losers.
